Legal information

Here we provide information about the legal basis for contract and consent and your rights for the information we gather or you provide while using this Strategist Consulting Services Ltd (SCS) website.

When processing your information SCS uses one of the following processes – consent or contract.

Legal basis: consent

When you enter your information in a form, we specify the purpose and future use of this information. By submitting information to a form, you consent for your details to be used according to the purposes stated within each form.

An example of this would be a request to be added to a mailing list (which will be used to send you newsletters and information).

As this information is provided on the basis of consent, you are free to withdraw your consent for such use of your information at any time.

We also collect some personal information (like the address of your computer) through the use of website cookies. You can set your preferences for these cookies through our cookie consent banner or when viewing some content. You can change these preferences at any time.

Legal basis: contract

SCS may process your information under the legal basis of contract, whereby the processing is necessary for a contract you have with us, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract.

Application forms typically fall into this category wherein you supply your information because you wish to access a particular service.
