to comply with legal requirements and obligations to third parties.
• These types of data are described in the GDPR as ‘Special categories of data’ and require
higher levels of protection. We need to have further justification for collecting, storing and
using this type of personal data.
• We may process special categories of personal data in the following circumstances:

We use your personal data for some or all of the following purposes:

Most of your personal data is processed in compliance with the Legitimate Interests condition. This sSays that if we have a good reason to process your personal data then we may do so without your explicit consent so long as there is no unwarranted impact on you. Examples of this would be processing data for those involved in sub-committees where BASG has a legitimate interest in making you aware of the services we provide. Where we rely on the Legitimate Interests condition, we conduct balancing tests so we can be confident that our processing of your information has no detrimental impact on you. You have the right to object to us relying on this condition for processing your data. If you object then we will immediately stop processing your data on this basis.

Sometimes we may need to process your personal data for the performance of a contract with you, or to take steps to enter into a contract. Examples of this would be processing your data in relation to membership of BASG, or in relation to contracts or agreements relating to particular projects, services or pieces of consultancy work.

Sharing your personal data
This section provides information about the third parties with whom BASG may share your personal data. These third parties have an obligation to put in place appropriate security measures and will be responsible to you directly for the manner in which they process and protect your personal data. We may need to share your data with the following (but only where necessary):
• Local authorities, statutory agencies or not-for-profit bodies with whom we are carrying out joint work, e.g. in relation to events for the community.
• Contractors working on our behalf, e.g. if we should need to ask a commercial provider to distribute mailings on our behalf;

How long do we keep your personal data?
We will keep some records permanently if we are legally required to do so. We may keep some other records for an extended period of time. For example, it is currently best practice to keep financial records for a minimum period of 6 years to support HMRC audits or provide tax information. We may have legal obligations to retain some data in connection with our projects/services for an extended period of time. In general, we will endeavour to keep data only for as long as we need it. This means that we will delete it when it is no longer needed.
