What is your legal basis for this processing?
· We consider the processing of your personal data for these purposes to be necessary for:

Will any data be shared with a 3rd party?
Your information will be used throughout Mayn Creative with only those staff who need to process your personal data for the purposes set out above.
Your personal data is shared as is necessary, on a considered and confidential basis, with several external organisations which assist with processing your information. Where this is the case, we will have formal agreements in place with any 3rd party organisation and they will be acting in accordance with our instructions and do not process your data for any other purposes other than what we have asked them to do. Sometimes your personal data is processed by these organisations outside the European Economic Area (usually because they use cloud systems provided by companies such as Microsoft or Google). If this is the case then we always ensure appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure the confidentiality and security of your personal data.

Except as we have explained above, we will not publish or disclose any personal data about you to other external enquirers or organisations unless you have asked us to do or have consented to it, or unless it is in your vital interests to do so (e.g. in an emergency situation).
