1. Purposes for which we process Personal Data and the legal bases on which we rely

Calls received and made by intY Ltd may be recorded by the company. These recordings will only be used for the following purposes: –

  • Health and safety and the prevention of crime: intY may need to review calls in order to comply with its legal obligations where there may be a danger to Health and Safety or for the prevention or detection of crime;
  • Compliance with regulatory procedures: intY will review calls where it is necessary to comply with its legal obligations in relation to any relevant regulatory procedures;
  • Quality assurance: intY has a legitimate interest to ensure customer service standards are being met and therefore intY’s Management team may review some phone calls;

After this period details of calls may be deleted. If there is any information that we are unable, for technical reasons, to delete entirely from our systems, we will put in place appropriate measures to prevent any further use of the data.
