8. Personal Data Transfer? How and to whom?

In order to be able to ensure a good evolution of our contractual relations, your personal data will be transferred:

  • To third parties (for example, our consultants);

  • To a provider of cloud storage services.

We want to make sure that your personal data is stored and transferred in a safe way.

On those grounds, we will transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (European Union Member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) only if the transfer is performed by complying with all legal provisions regarding personal data protection and by ensuring a high level and adequate protection, as follows:

  • By transferring your personal data in a state that offers an adequate level of protection, recognized as such through a decision issued by the Commission of the European Union;

  • In case you have freely given your consent after having been informed regarding the transfer of personal data outside the European Economic Area;

  • By concluding a contract regarding the transfer of personal data to a third party, a contract that should include standard clauses adopted by the Commission of the European Union related to personal data transfer to controllers and other processors located in states that ensure an adequate protection level.

9. Legal grounds for personal data processing

The Regulation provides a series of means through which your personal data can be processed by following the law. These are being described below.

Processing is happening as a result of contract implementation

Article 6, paragraph (1) in the Regulation provides that processing is legal only if one of the following conditions apply: […] b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or to follow any steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

Therefore, we rely on this legal assumption to process your personal data, which allows us to observe our contractual obligations, but also our obligations towards third parties and to ensure that your obligations towards us have been fulfilled accordingly.

Processing based on a legal obligation

Apart from our contractual obligations, we are also bound by other legal obligations that we must observe. Article 6, paragraph (1), letter (c) from the Regulation provides that we can process your personal data in case this procedure is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.

An example of such a legal obligation that we must comply with is our obligation to cooperate with fiscal authorities.

Processing based on a legitimate interest

Article 6 paragraph (1) letter (f) from the Regulation provides that we can process your data if this processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data.

We consider the following as non-exhaustive examples of processing activities of your personal data according to our legitimate interests:

  • For our internal administrative purposes;

  • To prevent unauthorized use of our equipment and information;

  • For performing investigations regarding alleged infringements; and

  • For establishing, exercising and sustaining legal claims.

Processing based on freely expressed consent

In certain circumstances, we will request your consent to opt-in (voluntary registration) before assuming specific requirements related to your personal data protection.

Article 4 paragraph (11) from the Regulation provides that the opt-in consent is considered any free indication, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to them.

In simple language, this means that:

  • You must express your consent freely, without us pressuring you in any way;

  • You need to know why you express your consent – we want to assure you that we will provide enough information;

  • You should only be asked to consent to only one processing activity at a specific moment – therefore, we avoid asking for asking for a single consent for more processing activities, so you don’t know exactly what you consented for; and

  • You must take specific measures to give us your consent – it is very likely that you will be requested to mark a checkbox to ensure that this requirement will be fulfilled in a clear manner and without ambiguities.

Once these specific personal data processing activities have been confirmed, we will offer you more information so that you can decide whether you want to subscribe or not.

You have the right to withdraw your consent for these activities. You can do this at any time and the details on how you can do this can be found above, in this document, in The right to withdraw your consent section.

Remember that we need your personal data described in Section 1 to be able to provide our services.

If you do not provide the requested personal data, we will not be able to provide the requested services, fully or partially. If you withdraw your consent, it is not possible for us to provide the requested services, fully or partially.

We do not consider that any of the above-mentioned activities might bring any prejudice to you.

However, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances.

If you need more details regarding these circumstances and how to object against our processing activities, please consult the section Right to object.
