The lawful basis for our processing activities include processing personal information as necessary to comply with our contractual obligations to provide the Service, compliance with our legal obligations, protecting the safety of our employees, and other users, for our legitimate business interests, compliance with legal obligations, and pursuant to your consent. The particular legal basis for the processing of your personal information is based on the purpose for which such information was provided or collected.
Performance of Contract: We use your personal information as necessary for the performance of contracts, to provide the Service, or in order for us to take steps, at your request, prior to entering into a contract, such as requesting information regarding your company and its needs and requirements. For example, we are not able to provide our Service unless you provide us with certain necessary personal information, such as identity information and contact information to set up and communicate with you about your account, and payment information in order to process payments for the Service. This collection and processing of the personal information is based on Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.
