The legal basis that we rely on for processing your information will depend on the circumstances in which it is being collected and used.  In most cases it will fall into the following categories:

• Where the processing is necessary to carry out the performance of a contract, such as volunteer or job apllications.

• Where we have a legitimate reason to process your information for example, providing you with information that we feel would be of interest to you, would be reasonably expected, and not intrusive. For example we may send out email newsletters with offers or general business information, note this would only happen if you have given consent to do so.
