What is the lawful basis for processing your information
The GDPR requires all organisations that process personal data to have a lawful basis for doing so. Our legal basis for collecting and using your personal information will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which it is collected. Ordinarily LET will rely on the following lawful basis:

- (Article 6 (1)(b)), necessary for the performance of your learner contract – LET will process your data to perform a contract or take steps to enter into a contract and to enable it to meet its commitments to you e.g. A non – exhaustive example would be the data that you provide on your candidate registration form, required for and disclosed to accrediting bodies such as Pearson Learning during your candidate registration and certification process relating to training and assessments and accreditation.
- (Article 6 (1)(c)), necessary to comply with a legal obligation – LET may have legal obligations to provide your personal data to others e.g. Health and safety or to ensure compliance or to prevent discrimination.
- (Article 6 (1)(d)), for the purpose of protecting the vital interest of yourself or another – sometimes in extreme circumstances LET will have to release information to protect your interests or the interests of others e.g. in medical emergencies.
- Article 6(1) (e) processing necessary for the performance of a tasks carried out in the public interest such as research or contribution to articles or journals or conferences.
- (Article 6 (1)(f)), processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest of LET or a third-party subject to overriding interests of the data subject.
Examples of legitimate interest include:
- Where the data subject is a client or in the service of the controller
- Transmission of data for internal administrative purposes
- Processing for direct marketing purposes
- LET has a broad legitimate interest in activities that connect to the activities and education of learners. Subject to those interests not being overridden by the interests of fundamental rights and freedoms of learners, it will pursue those interests.
