Legal basis for processing Personal Information (EEA visitors only)

If you are a visitor/client located in the European Economic Area ("EEA"), our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you. If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.  At any time, visitors/customers in the EEA can request to view and/or remove any Personal Information. IOBA will abide by any lawful requests made, by emailing icc@ioba.org. If you have any questions about this GDPR Privacy Policy or our treatment of the information you provide us, please write to us by email at icc@ioba.org.
