Examples of such legitimate interests will include where Hirehood sends you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you expect that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, or where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention. Hirehood will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.
