Lawful basis for processing personal data
The ASWMC consider “legitimate interests” [Article 6(1)(f)] as a lawful basis to process personal data.

We have checked that the processing is necessary and that there is no less intrusive way to achieve the same result. We are confident that the interests of individuals do not override those legitimate interests. We only use individuals’ data in ways they would reasonably expect.
