We may process your personal data as we are building our relationship with you, where we are entering into a bidding or contract process with you, where we are proposing to or have worked on joint projects with you, where we have or have previously held a contract or service agreement with your or where we have provided you with our services in the past.
We do this for the purposes of our own legitimate interests, or where a third party has a legitimate interest in processing your personal data, provided that those interests do not override any of your own interests, rights and freedoms which require the protection of personal data. This includes processing for marketing, business development, statistical and management purposes.
We may process your personal data for certain additional purposes with your consent. In these circumstances you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time to processing for such specific purposes.
Please note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful basis depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.
