Legitimate Interest Assessment
To comply with GDPR, Robot Food has carried out a Legitimate Interests Assessment which is documented below
Purpose of Processing
Robot Food has a legitimate interest to process personal data relating to decision makers and budget holders in medium-to-large organisations. The data is gathered from publicly available sources and directly from the companies concerned.
Lawful Business Objective
The processing is necessary in order to supply Robot Foods’ clients with data for business-to-business marketing purposes; a lawful business objective specifically identified by the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR). Recital 47 of the GDPR identifies direct marketing as a legitimate use of personal information.
The data subjects are senior business people with decision making and budgetary responsibilities and can reasonably expect to be contacted with marketing material relating to their professional roles.
Adequate, Relevant & Limited
The data collected is limited to names of senior managers and directors, their job titles, company addresses, company landline telephone numbers and corporate email addresses. If a person leaves their role, their name and contact details are deleted from the database.
If a data subject requests that their data is removed from the database, it is suppressed so that it cannot be accessed or added again at a later date.
In supplying accurate, regularly updated and targeted data, Robot Food provides a valuable service to business-to-business marketers. In the absence of Robot Food and similar high quality service providers, corporate marketers would have to rely on limited, inaccurate and out-of-date data for their marketing needs, which would have a detrimental effect on the success of their businesses and the wider economy.
