LEGITIMATE INTERESTS

Media Relations is a long standing and well-understood activity, with journalists, influencers, bloggers and agents understanding that agencies will contact them with information which is relevant to their industry. This is beneficial to all parties, with journalists receiving information to help do their job, agencies can create media coverage which their clients have requested and clients are able to connect with the media in ways they are not able to do directly. There is no other means to achieving these combined without the agency processing their data and it will not be used unethically or illegally. Therefore, it is deemed appropriate that the agency can rely on legitimate interests in relation to their data processing.
