Where we store your Personal Information
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. The Lantern Trust will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

What lawful bases do we rely on to use your personal data?
The lawful bases that we rely on for processing your personal data are:

You have provided your consent to us using your personal data for a specific purpose:

We will ask for your consent to use your personal data to send you electronic communications such as newsletters and emails.

You always have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

It is necessary in connection with the performance of a contract with you:

Sometimes it is necessary to process your personal data so that we can enter into contractual relationships with you.

It is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject:

This would include where we have to retain certain records, for example. Or where we are required to disclose personal data to any regulators or law enforcement agencies.

It is within our legitimate interests.

Applicable law allows personal data to be collected and used if it is reasonably necessary for our legitimate interests or a third party’s legitimate interests (as long as the processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact individuals’ rights). We will rely on this ground to process your personal data when it is not practical or appropriate to ask for your consent, and where we are confident that this will not impact your rights.

We will also rely on our legitimate interests for the proper administration of The Lantern Trust, and to manage our operations (for example, maintaining appropriate records and databases).

When we process your personal data to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

Communications and marketing
We will contact you by post, and where you have provided consent, also by telephone and email, to let you know about our events and activities that might be of particular interest to you; about the work of The Lantern Trust more generally.
