  • Processing necessary for the fulfilment of our statutory and contractual obligations

Processing of personal data for the purposes of fulfilment of our statutory and contractual obligations is vital for our business activities. Without obtaining and processing personal data for these purposes we would not be able to provide you with our Services at all. Hence, if you are seeking provision of our Services, you will have to provide us with your personal data. So that we do not need your consent to process personal data for these purposes. If there is a contractual relation on the provision of Services between you and us, neither can you refuse processing of respective personal data due to the contract performance and fulfilment of our statutory obligations, nor can we comply with your request to delete such personal data.

In particular, these are as follows:

  • Processes associated with your identification and contacting for the purposes of contract conclusion and performance (conclusion and performance of contracts);

  • Processing based on our legitimate interests

In particular, these are as follows:

  • Evaluating the payment morale and if applicable enforcing our legitimate claims against our debtors and any related and factual acts;
  • Keeping records of our debtors;
  • Providing documents to a party interested in the assignment of our eligible receivables from our debtors;
  • In justified cases securing evidence in case it is necessary to defend our rights;
  • Direct marketing, i.e. sending information (commercial messages) in connection with the offer of our Services.
