Data processing

The legitimate interests clause states that the processing is “necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by a controller or by a third party except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child”. Kander 100 processes data only in the way they would reasonably expect and is clear from the activities they are participating in and with no significant privacy risks, due to the limited personal data that is both collected and processed.
