What is our ‘legal basis for processing’?

By doing this we are able to gain insight on who visits our platform and what information they access.

The impact this would have on you are that The Nucleus Magazine would gain data on the media you access on our platform.

In our assessment, the impact on you does not override the benefits of the processing.

How long do we keep your information for?

Do we share your information with other organisations?
