Applicable law

Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), this privacy policy complies with the following regulations.
Personal data must be:

• Processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (lawfulness, fairness and transparency).
• Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall, in accordance with in Article 89, paragraph 1, not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes (“purpose limitation”).
• Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed (data minimisation).
• Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay (accuracy).
• Kept in a form which allows identifying the data subjects for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as personal data shall be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, in accordance with Article 89, paragraph 1, subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the present regulation in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject (storage limitation).
• Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures (integrity and confidentiality).

Processing is only lawful if and insofar as at least one of the following applies:
• The data subject has given consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes.
• The processing is necessary for the execution of a contract to which the data subject is party, or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.
• The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.
• The processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another person.
• The processing is necessary for the execution of a mission of public interest or falling within the exercise of the public power with which the data controller is invested.
• The processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the data controller, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
