Our privacy notice (the text of which is provided below) is posted on our website.
We do not communicate to Data Subjects directly. Hence, our publicly available privacy notice explains to potential Data Subjects how we use personal information and provides an opportunity for them to object to such processing by emailing us. The reason why we do not communicate with Data Subjects directly is that we predominately collect information, including personal data, from 3rd parties (databases, websites, etc.). Moreover, on many projects, the purpose is such that informing the Data Subject of the collection and processing of data would defeat the purpose and negate the legitimate interest of the client.
How do we use personal information?
We may process personal information for our legitimate business interests and those of our clients, such as conducting due diligence and background checks on individuals that have control or influence over legal entities which are subject of commercial interest, fraud prevention and transparency, assisting clients in pursuing legal remedies, etc.
When we process your personal information for such legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on individuals (both positive and negative), and their rights under data protection laws.
Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override the interests of the data subject individuals – we will not use personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on the individual(s) whose personal data we process (unless we have the consent of those individuals or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Whenever we process data for these purposes we will ensure that we always keep all personal data rights in high regard and take account of these rights.
Every individual has the right to object to this processing if they so wish by emailing us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
