The service we provide to you necessarily entails you providing us with personal information in order to undertake agreed work and future billing. If you provide us with personal data about a third party (for example your own clients, customers, staff or suppliers), you warrant that you have obtained the express consent from the third party for the disclosure and use of their personal data. We shall continue to process this information until the working relationship between us ends or is terminated by either party. 2. Information we process with your consent: Through certain actions when otherwise there is no working relationship between us, such as when you ask us to provide you with more information about our venue, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information. Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information. Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you write to us requesting a response. We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists. You may withdraw your consent at any time by writing to us at Unit 3, The Boathouse, Gasworks Lane, Brunel Quay, Bristol BS1 5AT or by email at email@example.com. If you do so, we shall not be able to provide our services further. 3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests: We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so. Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
- whether we could achieve the same objective by other means
