6.2 Our use of your Personal Data will always have a lawful basis, for example because it is necessary for Our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to Our use of your Personal Data, or because it is necessary in Our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and Your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing Your Personal Data other than where we are required to do so in order to send direct marketing communications via email or text message.
6.3 Specifically, We may use your data for the following purposes (and on the following lawful bases):
