We process your personal data where the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you (including the membership agreement); where the processing is necessary for the compliance of a legal obligation that is applicable to TLN; and where the processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests. In some cases we may process your personal data based on your consent.

We have identified our legitimate interests as fraud prevention; IT security and network administration; providing useful content to our members; keeping our website optimised; facilitating user communications and enquiries; carrying out marketing activities to promote our executive network.
In respect of any online chat group for our members made available via third party instant messaging sites, apps or platforms (“Group Chat”), we will only add you to such Group Chats at your request and with your prior consent.

We use profiling in order to enhance your user experience and to present you with advertising that is relevant to you and in line with your browsing history and past purchases. We do not carry out any automated decision making.
If you exercise your right to object to profiling, then we will unsubscribe you from your membership and stop processing your personal data in accordance with our data retention policy.
