G SAFE Members’ ‘legitimate interests’ provides the lawful basis on which it may process specific items of Offenders’ personal data for specific purposes without Offenders’ consent.  G SAFE has assessed the impact of its processing on Offenders’ rights and freedoms, has balanced these with its Members’ own rights, and has concluded that its Members’ rights prevail over Offenders’ rights in this specific matter. Therefore, for the purposes of the management of its Exclusion Scheme on behalf of its Members, to inform Members of an offender’s modus operandi, to collate intelligence on criminal activity within the area of G SAFE’s operation and to contribute to legal proceedings against Offenders where appropriate, Members’ legitimate interests constitute G SAFE’s lawful basis for processing Offenders’ personal data without requiring consent. 
 
6.    Categories and types of personal data processed

b.   Offenders’ postal and email addresses, telephone number(s) and other contact details; the purpose of this processing is to enable G SAFE to communicate with Offenders from time to time, for example to send warning letters, confirmation of exclusions, rules of the exclusion scheme, or confirmation that exclusions have expired.
