All of the uses provided are not all inclusive and Rilta may also collect similar or related information consistent
with laws and regulations and subsequent notice provided or posted as consistent with applicable legal


There are six alternative ways in which the lawfulness of a specific case of processing of personal data
may be established under the GDPR.
It is Rilta’s policy to identify the appropriate basis for processing and to document it, in accordance
with the regulation. The options are described in brief in the following sections.
1. Consent
Unless it is necessary for a reason allowable in the GDPR, Rilta will always obtain explicit consent from
a data subject to collect and process their data. Transparent information about our usage of their
personal data will be provided to data subjects at the time that consent is obtained and their rights
with regard to their data explained, such as the right to withdraw consent.
2. Performance of a Contract
Where the personal data collected and processed are required to fulfil a contract with the data
subject, explicit consent is not required. This will often be the case where the contract cannot be
completed without the personal data in question e.g. a delivery cannot be made without an address
to deliver to.
3. Legal Obligation
If the personal data is required to be collected and processed in order to comply with the law, then
explicit consent is not required. This may be the case for some data related to employment and
taxation for example, and for many areas addressed by the public sector.
4. Vital Interests of the Data Subject
In a case where the personal data are required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of
another natural person, then this may be used as the lawful basis of the processing. Rilta will retain
reasonable, documented evidence that this is the case, whenever this reason is used as the lawful
basis of the processing of personal data.
5. Task Carried Out in the Public Interest
Where Rilta needs to perform a task that it believes is in the public interest or as part of an official
duty then the data subject’s consent will not be requested. The assessment of the public interest or
official duty will be documented and made available as evidence where required.
6. Legitimate Interests
If the processing of specific personal data is in the legitimate interests of Rilta and is judged not to
affect the rights and freedoms of the data subject in a significant way, then this may be defined as the
lawful reason for the processing. Again, the reasoning behind this view will be documented.
