13. What data we share
The lawful bases for processing Personal Data are set out in Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We may process your Personal Data on more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your Personal Data, where more than one ground has been set out below. At least one of these must apply whenever we process Personal Data:
- Consent: you have given clear consent for us to process your Personal Data for a specific purpose.
- Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with you (for example, to process and deliver our services to you and to manage our relationship with you), or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract.
- Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (not including contractual obligations).
- Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.
- Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests (for example to administer and maintain our Platform) or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your Personal Data which overrides those legitimate interests.
We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your Personal Data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
- By contract, with companies and contractors that perform services for us, including email service providers, payment processors, fraud prevention vendors, spam detection and other service providers;
- By legal obligation, in response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law or legal process, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements;

- With your consent or at your direction. For instance, you may choose to share actions you take on our Services with third-party social media services via the integrated tools we may provide via our Services.
We also share aggregated or other information not subject to obligations under the data protection laws of your jurisdiction with third parties. For example, we sometimes may share aggregate information with research organizations to help facilitate their research.
We will only use Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us. If we need to use the Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so; if consent was the lawful basis, consent will be re-obtained. Please note that we may process Personal Data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
