  • the User has given consent for one or more specific purposes;  Note:  in some jurisdictions the Data Controller may be authorized to process Personal Data without the User’s consent or even in case none of the legal bases specified here below exists, as long as the User does not object (“opt-out”) to such processing. However, this does not apply if the Personal Data processing is governed by European laws on Personal Data Protection;
  • the Data Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the User and/or for the performance of pre-contractual agreements;
  • the Data Processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation that the Data Controller is subject to;
