- the processing is in our legitimate interests – subject to your interests and fundamental rights, we shall perform the Personal Information processing activities described herein under our legitimate interest in: (i) marketing our products and services, including our legitimate interest in performing online advertising campaigns and sending advertisements, updates, notices, announcements and additional information related to People and Payroll, the Site and the related services; (ii) offering comfortable and safe access to our Site, (iii) conducting internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and statistical purposes; (iv) personalizing the Site and ensuring that People and Payroll provides the best services to its Users, (v) ensuring that the Site is maintained safe and secured against fraudulent and criminal activity; and (vi) managing our internal operations, maintaining records and email tracking. Where we rely on legitimate interests as a lawful basis, we will carry out a balancing test to ensure that your interests, rights and freedoms do not override our legitimate interests.
Note to non-EU Users:
BY ENTERING, CONNECTING TO, ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS SPECIFIED HEREIN.
- Sharing Personal Information with third parties
- In addition to using the information collected by us for the purposes described under Section 7 above, we may also share your Personal Information in the following cases:

People and Payroll acknowledges and hereby informs you, that you have the following rights with respect to the Personal Information we collect and process about you:

The right to data portability only applies where your Personal Information is processed by us with your consent or for the performance of a contract and when processing is carried out by automated means.
- Right to object to or withdraw consent: where that lawful basis for processing your Personal Information is either “public interest” or “legitimate interests”, those lawful bases are not absolute, and you may have the right to object to such processing. Where you object on the grounds of legitimate interest, we shall no longer process your Personal Information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. If the processing of your Personal Information is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent to such processing at any time.
- The right to restrict processing: under certain circumstances, you may have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Information due to your particular situation.
- Right to lodge a complaint: you have the right to lodge a complaint before the relevant data protection authority or supervisory authority of your jurisdiction.
To exercise these rights please contact us by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with sufficient details and we will respond within a reasonable timeframe, but in any event no later than as required by applicable law.
