In cases where we are processing your personal data based on legitimate interest, where we use your information in ways that people would reasonably expect and that have a minimal privacy impact and people would not be surprised or likely to object. Legitimate interest is a legal ground for processing your data. It means that our use of your information must be fair and balanced to ensure we consider your rights and interests as an individual.
