up for an incredible and expensive shock.

  1. Consent: the individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific and defined purpose.
  2. Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take
    specific steps before entering into a contract.
  3. Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for you to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).
  4. Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.
  5. Public task: the processing is necessary for you to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions,
    and the task or function has a clear basis in law.
  6. Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of the orginizations carrying out the processing
    or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which
    overrides those legitimate interests.

Credit agencies would be an example of organizations which can lawfully rely on “legitimate interests” to carry out data processing.
They keep detailed records of individual’s personal information – name, address, postcode, salary, marital and family status,
whether they rent or own their home, etc – and credit history, so your outstanding debts and loans and repayment history
are checked and monitored. Other factors include the volume of enquiries into your credit as well as investigating publicly held records.
All potentially private information can be shared with lenders, utilities or employers for the lawful reason of checking a person’s credit score.
