8AM conducts ‘Business to Business’ marketing on a ‘Legitimate Interest’ basis. In doing so, it has considered three things.
- Can a legitimate interest be identified?
- Can it be shown that processing data is necessary to achieve it
- Can this be balanced against the individual’s interests, rights and freedoms?
Identify a legitimate interest
8AM is a sophisticated and experienced investment business with many highly experienced individuals working within it. In communicating with its database of third party introducers and professional investors, 8AM has assessed the following as being of legitimate Interest.
- Processing data of Investment Professionals is necessary in connection with any contract that the professional may enter into with 8AM.
- 8AM has a legitimate interest in carrying out the processing for the purpose of providing services (or improving them) to Investment professionals (to the extent that such legitimate interest is not overridden by your interests, rights or freedoms).
- Processing data held and informing the 8AM database is in the commercial and educational interests of the database and their clients
Is processing The Data Necessary?
Processing the data is a targeted and proportionate way of distributing the information. 8AM has looked at less intrusive ways to achieve the same result and they are not practical.
8AM has considered its interests with those of the individual. 8AM have done a balancing test and is confident that the individual’s interests do not override these legitimate interests. 8AM also only use data in ways that the individual would reasonably expect.
It has considered whether or not the individual would reasonably expect the processing and if it would cause unjustified harm. The conclusion was that it would not and that ‘legitimate interest’ was a safe way to proceed.
