Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data Under (GDPR)

The law requires us to set out the lawful grounds on which we collect and process your personal information as described in this Policy. Depending on the purposes for which we use your data, one or more of the grounds listed below may be relevant:

  • Legitimate Interest:

In certain instances, we collect and use your personal information by relying on the legitimate interest legal basis. In broad terms, our “legitimate interests” means our interest in being able to run Wellness Impact as an organisation entity effectively in pursuit of our aims and ideals. This includes:

  • Sending direct marketing material to supporters by post for events, training or fundraising purposes
  • Conducting research to better understand who our supporters and audience are and better target our events and activities;
  • Measure and understand how our audiences respond to a variety of marketing activity so we can ensure our activity is well targeted, relevant and effective;
  • Providing information about our cause;
  • Processing donations and payments;
  • Administering events;
  • Staff recruitment and taking applications for volunteers and contacting volunteers about their role; and
  • The use of CCTV recording equipment in and around our premises for monitoring and security purposes

However “legitimate interests” can also include your interests, such as when you have requested information or certain services from us, and those of third parties.

If we rely on the “legitimate interests” basis to use your personal information, we will only use the information in accordance with the purposes described in this Policy.

When we legitimately process your personal information in this way, we also consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where collection and use of your information would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law)

  • Consent:

In many instances, we will rely on obtaining your consent to our use of your personal information in a certain way (for example, asking for your consent to use your personal information to send you direct marketing information, and we may ask for your explicit consent to share sensitive personal information with us)

  • Legal Obligation:

We may need to collect, process and disclose personal information to comply with a legal obligation. For example, where we are ordered by a court or regulatory authority or we are legally required to hold donor transaction details for Gift Aid or accounting/tax purposes. We may also use personal information to cross check and prevent known malicious activities on Wellness Impact operated services.

  • Performance of a contract:

For example if you agree to work for us, we need to be able to process your information for the purpose of meeting our contractual obligations.

Transfer Of Data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your city or country where the data protection laws may differ than those from your country.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

Wellness Impact will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

Disclosure Of Data

Disclosure for law enforcement

Under certain circumstances, Wellness Impact may be required to disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).

  • To comply with a legal obligation
  • To protect and defend the rights or property of Wellness Impact
  • To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service
  • To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public
  • To protect against legal liability
