However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.  In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person. 

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible at this moment in time (for example, because your specific personal information has been stored in an encrypted backup archive), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion has occurred.
