Legal basis for processing your information
Vedas collects and processes your Personal Data on the basis of different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the Personal Data being provided and the type of processing involved. More information is provided on this here.

Performance of a Contract
Most of the Personal Data processed by Vedas is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement. An example of this would be where Vedas matches Job Seekers with Employers.

Such legitimate interests will include where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf.
