How the Friends of Tariro use your ‘personal data’ and how we collect it

• If you submit your details when sending an enquiry through one of our forms

What are our lawful bases for processing personal data

The GDPR demands that we have a valid lawful basis to process personal data. There are six available legal bases for processing. We rely on at least one of the following legal bases when we collect personal data in the ways described above:
• Your consent, which is explicitly given and can be easily withdrawn
• A legitimate interest, ours and / or yours. If you ask us for information, it is in your legitimate
interest that we process your personal data. If we have a contractual relationship with you, it is in both our legitimate interests that we process your personal data.
