Crownsoft relies on legitimate interests as the basis for processing your personal information, meaning that we have reasonable grounds to do so. When we state that we rely on legitimate interests in the above table, it is because we believe that our interests do not outweigh your rights, interests, and freedoms. This belief is supported by our commitment to transparency, privacy by design, regular privacy reviews, and the rights you have in relation to your personal data. If you require further information about our approach to balancing these interests, please reach out to Crownsoft’s Data Privacy Officer.

In certain cases, we may process your personal data based on your prior consent, particularly when it is mandatory under applicable laws.

When you are asked to indicate your acceptance, agreement, or similar actions in relation to a privacy statement by clicking “I accept,” “I agree,” or similar buttons/checkboxes/functionalities, it will be considered as your consent to process your personal data in countries where such consent is required by law.
