Controlling your personal information
We process personal information for certain legitimate business purposes, which include some or all of the following:

“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/information.
For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing and the industry information we provide is relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests.
It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws.

If you have any concerns about the processing of your data, you have the right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. For more information on your rights, please see “Your Rights” section below.
