2. Purposes of Data Collection

  1. Performance of a Contract

We collect and process your personal data for the purposes of contacting you where you provide these details to us in the context of enquiring about our services. Where you voluntarily submit your personal details for the purposes of engaging our services we rely on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR to provide the legal basis for collecting and processing your personal data for this purpose i.e. we require your personal data to fulfil the performance of this agreement with you.

  1. Legitimate Interests

We also collect aggregate information about visitors to our website for statistical purposes on the basis of our legitimate interests i.e. Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. For example, we may count the number of visitors to the different pages of our website to help optimise our website. This information does not identify you personally, but may identify the company you work for by matching your IP address to known IP addresses of companies using a third party tracking tool, Leadfeeder which uses Google Analytics to match IP address to companies. As this tool does not have the capability of identifying individual users, we do not have sight of IP addresses, nor does it track individual users as they browse and exit our website, we have assessed that the impact on your privacy is minimal and we therefore are permitted on the basis of our legitimate interests as a commercial organisation to identify potential sales leads in companies who are actively browsing our website and who therefore already have an interest in hearing from us regarding future collaborations. In certain circumstances, where you are already on our database as a contact person within your organisation, we may decide to send you an email based on your opt-out consent under B2B electronic direct marketing rules, but this targeting has not resulted from your website browsing being linked back to you.

This newsletter will include industry news and updates and will also invite you to events hosted by Arekibo. Where you have provided your personal email address to receive the newsletter, we rely on your opt-in consent; where we have collected or you have provided your business email address we rely on your opt-out consent on the basis of our legitimate interests as outlined above.
