  • processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the User and/or the performance of pre-contractual measures (e.g. responding to a request for a quotation or information on a product or service offered);
  • processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which the Controller is subject;
  • processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Controller;
