Any legitimate interests pursued by us, or third parties we use, are as follows:

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us, after which we will cease sending marketing communications to you.

Consent is required for Diamond Controls Group to process both types of personal data, but it must be explicitly given. Where we are asking you for sensitive personal data we will always tell you why and how the information will be used.
