Legal bases for use of your personal information

5.1

We need to have a legal basis or bases for using your personal information for the purposes set out in this Privacy and Cookies Policy. We consider that our legal bases are as follows:

(a)

our use of your personal information is necessary for the performance of the website in accordance with our website terms and conditions and our Services in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions; or

(b)

you have consented to our use of your personal information (in the case of marketing activity); or

(c)

use of your personal information is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party. These legitimate interests are to:

i

run, grow and develop our business (as well as the businesses of our group companies);

iii

operate our website;

iv

vi

for internal group administrative purposes.;

If we rely on our (or another person's) legitimate interests for using your personal information, we will undertake a balancing test to ensure that our (or the other person's) legitimate interests are not outweighed by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of the personal information. You can ask us for information on this balancing test by using the contact details at paragraph 13 below.

5.1

If we have asked for your consent to collect and use certain types of personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting support@lifelabs.io.

7. Data Retention

We will only retain information (including personal information) about individuals for as long as is necessary in the circumstances. For example:

(a)

for so long as you hold an account with us, we will retain the personal information that is necessary for us to administer that account and will delete it within two (2) years of that account ceasing to be active;

(b)

if your LIFEwallet becomes dormant, we will keep hold of the necessary personal information so that you are able to access your wallet but may contact you to check whether you still require the wallet (and therefore require us to continue to hold your personal information). If we do not hear from you we will delete your personal information within five (5) years of your LIFEwallet becoming dormant. If we do hear from you we will contact you again if the LIFEwallet remains dormant; and

(c)

where an individual registered an interest in a new product, we will retain that individual's contact details so that we can tell them when it is released and keep them updated about the product. Due to the time it takes to develop products it may be up to two (2) years after the point at which that individual first registered their interest before the product is released. Individual’s information will be deleted within two (2) years of any of either: (1) the product being released and the individual not engaging with it further or (2) the product development being discontinued.

We will delete all personal information when we no longer need it except where we need to keep any personal information to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, comply with industry best practice with respect to KYC or AML or enforce our agreements.

8. International transfers

We will transfer personal information that we collect from you to third party data processors located in countries that are outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA") (including to the United States of America) in connection with the above purposes. Please be aware that countries which are outside the European Economic Area may not offer the same level of data protection as the United Kingdom, although our collection, storage and use of your personal data will continue to be governed by this Privacy and Cookies Policy. We will take appropriate measures to ensure that the recipient protects your personal information adequately in accordance with this Privacy and Cookies Policy. These measures include the following, as permitted in Articles 45 and 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation:

(a)

in the case of US based entities, entering into European Commission approved standard contractual arrangements with them, or ensuring they have signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield (see further https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome); or

(b)

in the case of entities based in other countries outside the EEA, entering into European Commission approved standard contractual arrangements with them.

9. Sharing of information
