2. Legal basis for processing

In certain jurisdictions, such as those located within the European Union, we are required to establish legal bases to process your personal data. We have identified our legal basis for processing in respect of each of the processing activities set out below:

This covers the analysis of the information collected through technical means, as set out under Section 1(B) above.
