LEGITIMATE INTERESTS
  • Under the new data protection law starting 25 May 2018 we have a number of lawful reasons that we can use (or 'process') your personal information. One of the lawful reasons is called 'legitimate interests'.

  • Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means that we can process your personal information if:

    • We have a genuine and legitimate reason and

    • We are not harming any of your rights and interests

 

  • So, what does this mean? When you provide your personal details to us we use your information for our legitimate business interests to carry out our work providing you with research, company news, video interviews and relevant financial information. Before doing this, though, we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights.

  • Some typical examples of when we might use the approach are for direct marketing, maintaining the security of our system, data analytics, enhancing, modifying or improving our services, identifying usage trends, determining the effectiveness of our campaigns, and preventing fraud.

 

  • Our vision

  • The vision of Capital Access Group is for:

“Connecting companies and investors.”

  • And our objective is:

“Capital Access Group is a specialist investor relations advisory business that connects quoted companies with new and existing investors, primarily private client fund managers, smaller institutions and regional pension funds.”

  • Capital Access Group will use various ways to achieve our mission and to support our objectives. We will process the personal information you have supplied to us to conduct and manage our business to enable us to give you the most appropriate marketing, information, service and products and provide the best and most secure experience. These are what we consider to be our 'Legitimate Interests'.

 

  • Our interests

  • The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach in our work:

    • Content emails: As part of our service we will provide regular emails highlighting content we believe is of value to our clients and users. You can subscribe or unsubscribe from these emails at any time on the https://www.capitalaccessgroup.co.uk/news-views page.

    • Your best interest: Processing your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.

    • Personalisation: Where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our users.

    • Analytics: To process your personal information for the purposes of customer analysis, assessment, profiling and direct marketing, on a personalised or aggregated basis, to help us with our activities and to provide you with the most relevant information as long as this does not harm any of your rights and interests.

    • Research: To determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising and to develop our products, services, systems and relationships with you.

    • Due Diligence: We may need to conduct investigations on supporters, potential customers and business partners to determine if those companies and individuals have been involved or convicted of offences such as fraud, bribery and corruption.

  • We will also hold information about you so that we can respect your preferences for being contacted by us.

 

  • Your interests

  • When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will 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).
