4. Data on the use of the Collective buildings and website – Collected automatically, for example cookies on the website and CCTV in the building.
This data is processed on a legitimate interests basis and used to fulfil our charitable purpose by publicising our offer, admitting businesses, monitoring their progress and maintaining the safety and usability of the buildings & website.
Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means that we can process your personal information if:
- We have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests
When you provide your personal details to us we use your information for our legitimate business interests to carry out our work providing free & subsidised business space in and around Camden. Before doing this, though, we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you unless we have your consent or are otherwise required to by law.

We only disclose information to third parties or individuals when obliged to by law, for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigations and the following:

- When we use other companies to provide services on our behalf, e.g. processing, mailing or delivering orders, answering customers’ questions about products or services, sending mail and emails, customer analysis, assessment and profiling, when using auditors/advisors or processing credit/debit card payments.
- We may disclose aggregate statistics about our members, applicants and site visitors to describe the social and economic impact Collective has, but these statistics won’t include any personally identifying information.
