We will only process these special categories of data if there is a valid reason and where the GDPR allows us to do so.

4. Lawful bases
The GDPR requires us to rely on one or more lawful basis to use your personal information. We consider the grounds listed below to be relevant:
a. Where necessary so that we can comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, where we are obliged to share your personal information with regulatory bodies which govern our work and services).
b. Where necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract.
c. Where there is a legitimate interest in us doing so.
d. Where the above reasons have not been satisfied and/ or you have provided your consent for us to use your personal information in a certain way.
The GDPR allows us to collect and process your personal information if it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as that processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact your rights as an individual). In broad terms, our “legitimate interests” means the interests of running of Game Nation as a commercial entity.

When we process your personal information to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and on your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

5. Communications for marketing
We may use your contact details to provide you with information about our work, services and/ or activities which we consider may be of interest to you.
Where we do this via email, SMS or telephone, we will not do so without your prior consent (unless allowed to do so via applicable law).
Where you have provided us with your consent previously but do not wish to be contacted by us about our work, services and/ or activities in the future, you can opt out of receiving communications from us at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of our emails/ texts. You can also change your preferences at any time by following the information provided within the communication or contacting us by the contact details below.

7. Will we share your personal information?

9. International Data Transfers
Given that we are a UK-based organisation we will normally only transfer your personal information within the European Economic Area (“EEA”), where all countries have the same level of data protection law as under the GDPR.
We may use agencies and/ or suppliers to process personal information on our behalf, it is possible that personal information we collect from you will be transferred to and stored in a location outside the EEA, for example the United States.
Please note that some countries outside of the EEA have a lower standard of protection for personal information, including lower security requirements and fewer rights for individuals. Where your personal information is transferred, stored and/ or otherwise processed outside the EEA in a country that does not offer an equivalent standard of protection to the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that the recipient implements appropriate safeguards (such as by entering into standard contractual clauses which have been approved by the European Commission) designed to protect your personal information and to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Notice. If you have any questions about the transfer of your personal information, please contact us using the details below.
Unfortunately, no transmission of your personal information over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. However, once we have received your personal data, we use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access.

This includes the right to ask us to stop using your personal information for marketing purposes or to unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time. You also have the following rights:

You can contact us to ask for confirmation of what personal information we hold on you and to request a copy of that personal information.

b. Right of erasure – at your request we will delete your personal information from our records as far as we are required to do so. In some cases, we would propose to suppress further communications with you, rather than delete it.

f. Right to data portability – to the extent required by the GDPR, where we are processing your personal information either (i) by relying on your consent or (ii) because such processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, and in either case we are processing using automated means (i.e. with no human involvement), you may ask us to provide the personal information to you in a machine-readable format.
g. Rights related to automated decision-making – you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your personal information which produces legal or similarly significant effects on you, unless such a decision (i) is necessary to enter into/perform a contract between you and us/another organisation; (ii) is authorised by EU or Member State law to which Game Nation is subject (as long as that law offers you sufficient protection); or (iii) is based on your explicit consent.
