We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the circumstances set out below. These are called lawful bases for processing:
- For performance of a contract with you – where you have requested access to the Hopster Coding Safari app and we use your personal data to set you up as an account holder (if you create a Hopster account) and provide the service to you and your family.
- Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.
- Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) to manage the Hopster Coding Safari app to ensure the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We will always make sure we balance any legitimate interest against any potential impact on you.
We do not generally rely on your consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data. We only use your data where it’s necessary to provide you with the Hopster Coding Safari service you have asked to receive – so, we are using your personal data to enable us to perform our contractual obligations to you.
