How We Use Your Information
Adenza may use personal data for various purposes when you engage with us based on different reasons. Data protection law in Europe contains a number of “lawful bases” – which are really legal justifications which mean organizations like us are allowed to have your personal data in the first place. For our EU users, we have been careful to ensure we have a lawful basis for all data we have. Our lawful bases include:
- Performing the contract we have with you
In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligation to deliver Adenza products and services. For example, if your employer subscribes to Adenza products or services, we may need your name and contact details so we can communicate with you and provide the software or service.
- Legal compliance
To comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request. We may pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity to law enforcement and tax laws require us to retain records of orders and payments for Adenza software and related services, which can include contact details at our corporate clients.
Send administrative information or changes to contract terms or policies. Where we make updates to terms and policies we are required under certain laws to notify you of these changes and under our contract with you. Other administrative communications, may be necessary in order for us to perform our obligations under the contract with you, or may be sent out in line with our legitimate interests.
