Lawful Processing

Organisations and individuals processing data must have valid grounds, known as Lawful Basis, to process personal data.

  • Six Lawful Basis: Under GDPR, there are six Lawful Basis. If no lawful basis applies, processing data would be unlawful and in breach of GDPR principles.
  • Compliance: Deciding on Lawful Basis for data processing is one of the initial steps to GDPR compliance. Multiple bases may be used for different processing purposes.

  • Expectations: Process personal data in a manner reasonably expected by individuals, avoiding negative effects on them.


Transparency entails:

  • Openness: Be open and honest about data collection, processing, sharing, retention, and purposes.
  • Privacy Policy: Provide comprehensive information in your privacy policy, ensuring clarity and conciseness to uphold individuals' right to be informed.
