Legal grounds for processing personal data

The legal grounds for collecting and using the personal data outlined above, depends on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which it is collected.

However, generally, we only collect and process your personal data with your consent, in the event that this personal information is necessary to perform a contract, or if the processing is in our legitimate interest and does not compromise the interest or the fundamental rights and liberties for the protection of your data.

In the event that we ask you to provide personal information so that we respect a legal requirement or for the performance of a contract, we will inform you clearly and in a timely manner, and will tell you if we are obliged to make this information available or not (we will also inform you of the consequences if you choose not to provide us with your personal information).
