How is Processing your Personal Data Lawful?


We are allowed to process your personal data on the following legal bases:


·         Legitimate interests

We are permitted to process your personal data if it is based on our ‘legitimate interests’ i.e. we have good, sensible, practical reasons for processing your personal data which is in the interests of Nu Bear. To do so, we have considered the impact on your interests and rights and have placed appropriate safeguards to ensure that the intrusion on your privacy is reduced as much as possible.  The section above explains the personal data processed on this basis and provides a description of our specific 'legitimate interests'.   You can object to processing on the grounds of legitimate interests. See the section headed "Your Rights" to find out how.

·         Contract

It is necessary for our performance of the contract you have agreed to enter with us (such as for the sale of our goods).  If you do not provide your personal data to us, we will not be able to carry out our obligations under the terms of your contract.


·         Consent

Sometimes we want to use your personal data in a way that is entirely optional for you. On these occasions, we will ask for your consent to use your information for that purpose. You can withdraw your consent at any time.  Currently we only rely on consent as a legal basis for processing to send direct marketing to you.

Some of these organisations such as anti-fraud checking services are also be controllers of your personal data for the service that they provide to us. For these providers, please check their websites and read their privacy notices to understand how they will use your personal data.


We may also need to share your personal information with a purchaser or potential purchaser of our business, with our legal and financial advisers and insurers. We will disclose personal data where required by law, a court, the police or a law enforcement agency.
