We process personal data based on four different legal grounds.
Consent as a legal ground for lawful processing
At all times, Makersite processes a data subject’s data with given consent.. You have the right to withdraw such consent at any time and we will cease to process data after consent is withdrawn. In such cases, the access rights, and permissions to the platform will be removed.

Makersite may process your data to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations e.g. preventing, investigating and detecting crime, fraud or anti-social behaviour and prosecuting offenders, including working with law enforcement agencies.
Contractual necessity as a lawful basis for processing
GDPR Recital 40 mentions ‘the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract’ as a legitimate basis of lawful processing and GDPR Recital 44 simply states that processing should be lawful where it is necessary in the context of a contract or the intention to enter into a contract. Therefore, we may process your data according to the Publisher Agreement and we need to process your personal data to comply with our obligations under the agreement.
Makersite processes personal data when it is in our legitimate interest to do so and when these interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.
