The Legal Basis for Processing your Personal Information
Under the GDPR, the main grounds that GE relies upon in order to process your personal information are the following:
- a) Necessary for entering into, or performing, a contract – in order to perform obligations that we undertake in providing service(s) to you, or in order to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us, it will be necessary for us to process your personal data;
b) Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – we are subject to certain legal requirements which may require us to process your personal data. We may also be obliged by law to disclose your personal data to a regulatory body or law enforcement agency;
c) Necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests – either we, or a third party, will need to process your personal data for the purposes of our (or a third party’s) legitimate interests, provided we have established that those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms, including your right to have your personal data protected. Our legitimate interests include responding to requests and enquiries from you or a third party, optimising our website and customer experience, informing you about our services and ensuring that our operations are conducted in an appropriate and efficient manner;
d) Consent – in some circumstances, we may ask for your consent to process your personal data in a particular way. To the extent that we are processing your personal information based on your consent, you will have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting us email@example.com
The security and protection of personal information supplied to you as a user of the Site is of the highest importance and concern to Gateway Enterprise . We have in place all generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal information submitted to the Site from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction and to ensure compliance with the requirements of all applicable data protection and privacy legislation.
Not withstanding the arrangements set out above, unfortunately the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
You have certain rights in relation to personal information we hold about you. Details of these rights and how to exercise them are set out below. We will require evidence of your identity before we are able to act on your request.
Right of Access
You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of your personal information that we hold. Where we have good reason, and if the GDPR permits, we can refuse your request for a copy of your personal information, or certain elements of the request (for example, if we would also be disclosing third party personal data). If we refuse your request or any element of it, we will provide you with our reasons for doing so.
Right of Correction or Completion
If personal information we hold about you is not accurate, out of date or incomplete, you have a right to have the data rectified, updated or completed. Therefore, please advise us of any changes to your information. You can let us know by contacting us firstname.lastname@example.org
Right of Erasure
In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that personal information we hold about you is erased e.g. if the information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or our processing of the information is based on your consent (which you wish to withdraw) and there are no other legal grounds on which we may process the information.
Right to object to or restrict processing
In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information by contacting us email@example.com. For example, if we are processing your information on the basis of our legitimate interests and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your rights and interests. You also have the right to object to use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
You may also have the right to restrict our use of your personal information, such as in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of the information and during the period where we are verifying its accuracy.
Right of Data Portability
In certain instances, you have a right to receive any personal information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
You can ask us to transmit that information to you or directly to a third party organisation.
The above right exists only in respect of personal information that:
- you have provided to us previously; and
- is processed by us using automated means.
While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organisation’s systems. Also, we may be unable to comply with requests that relate to personal information of others without their consent.
You can exercise any of the above rights by contacting us using any of the methods in the Contact section at the bottom of this page.
Most of the above rights are subject to limitations and exceptions. We will provide reasons if we are unable to comply with any request for the exercise of your rights.
Any personal information you submit to us will be retained for the period necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected or, where the information is required for longer, in accordance with our data retention policies. However, you may always ask us to permanently erase your information and in certain circumstances you have a legal right to request such erasure (see above).
Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties
GE will not share any personal information collected on the Site with third parties unless required by law, required to enable the fulfilment of the purpose for which the personal information was originally supplied or as otherwise set out in this policy. GE may transfer all or part of its business in the circumstances of a merger or sale of part or all of its business. In such circumstances personal information you supply may be transferred but this will be only in circumstances where the acquiring company has agreed to the same standards and terms of privacy as are set out in this policy. GE remains liable to you in respect of its obligations concerning your personal data in cases of onward transfers to third parties.
If you are unhappy about our use of your personal information, you can contact us using the details in the Contact Us section at the bottom of this page. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office using any of the below contact methods:

Data Processed During Provision of Services

The data will be collected for the purpose of providing due diligence reports to our clients. The lawful bases under GDPR for such data processing will vary depending on the nature of the data and the project, but will include:
a) necessary for the purpose of our or our client’s legitimate interests. These interests may include ensuring that the client does not take actions that could result in legal liability, reputational impact or other adverse effects;
b) necessary for the prevention or detection of an unlawful act;
c) necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim;
d) the data has been manifestly made public by the data subject.
The sources of the data include public record research, human source enquiries, interviews with subjects and associates / colleagues and information provided to us by our client.
Third parties with whom we may share such data include, other members of the AMS, our client who commissioned the work and its advisers who have, themselves, a lawful basis for processing the data, and our subcontractors who are involved in gathering the information.
Individuals whose data is processed during the course of our client services have the same rights as all other data subjects. Please see above for details, and the Contact section below for details of how to exercise your rights.
If you have any enquires or if you would like to contact us about our processing of your personal information, including to exercise your rights as outlined above, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
