How we use your personal information 


A. Legitimate interests

3Kites Consulting may process personal information for the legitimate interests of our business.  In particular in order to contact individuals in the course of an engagement or potential engagement for a client, or otherwise as necessary to perform our duties in the course of an engagement, in order to market ourselves, for example, in order to inform individuals of our services, providing articles and commentary and inviting individuals to events, in order to issue or pay invoices, or in order to enquire about other organisations’ products and services.  

We believe that these activities form part of a relevant and appropriate relationship between us and other organisations or individuals and that our use of personal information is within the reasonable expectations of the data subjects whose personal information we hold.  

Legitimate interests means our interests in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give our clients the best possible service, to be informed about products and services available and to send out marketing information that is relevant to the recipients. 

When we process personal information for our legitimate interests we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on the individual (both positive and negative) and their rights under data protection laws.  Our legitimate interests do not automatically override the individual’s interests.  

We will not use personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on the individual (unless we have their consent or are otherwise required or permitted to do so by law).  


B. Consent

For the purposes of EU e-privacy legislation, we seek to obtain consent to our direct marketing by email.    

You may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing contact@3kites.com with UNSUBSCRIBE in the header. 


We keep personal data in secure systems and co-ordinate our marketing and other activities in order to avoid contacting individuals with an unreasonable level of frequency.  We will never sell individuals’ personal details to other organisations.  

We take systematic steps to keep personal data up to date and to delete data which is no longer needed. 


Right to object

You have the right to object to our processing of your data if you wish.  If you wish to do so, please click contact@3kites.com.  If your objection is to processing which we believe is permitted as part of our legitimate interests we may respond asking for clarification.
