Our lawful basis for processing your data

We process customer and client data and use direct marketing as part of this legitimate interest.
It’s necessary for us to use a variety of direct marketing channels and messages to ensure our contacts are kept informed, and wherever possible we make sure the messages we send are targeted and relevant.
Any direct marketing we undertake complies with e-privacy rules on consent. Biocair and its partners may also carry out telemarketing campaigns, voice calls may be recorded for training/development purposes and the contact will be given the option to consent to this recording at the point of contact.
We will keep your data safely and securely for as long as necessary or according to your instructions, and we review the data we hold at least once every two years.
