If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the conduct of our business.
