How the law protects you
As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works.
The Data Protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a valid reason to do so. This includes sharing it outside W Studio. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:
- To fulfil a contract we have with you, or
- When it is our legal duty, or
- When it is in our legitimate interest, or
- When you consent to it.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interests, we will tell you what that is.
Legal Basis for Processing Data at W Studio
