4. Purpose of processing and legal basis for processing

a. Legal and contractual purposes - processing necessary to fulfil a contractual or legal obligation to which the Data Controller is subject or to execute a specific request from the data subject

Your personal data may be processed, without the need for your consent, in cases where this is necessary to fulfil obligations arising from legal provisions, as well as standards, codes or procedures approved by Authorities and other competent Institutions. The above as long as it is necessary and without it, you would not be able to access the Website and services.

Your personal data will also be processed for purposes related and/or connected to the provision of services by the Company in the context of browsing the Website, and more specifically:

  • for the provision of services requested by the user while browsing the Website or through the completion of forms therein, including subscription to the generic newsletter envisaged for any user;
  • for the provision of the services requested by the user with registration to the Website and the creation of their account and profile including the collection, storage and processing of data for the purpose of the establishment and subsequent operational, technical and administrative management of the relationship (and the account and profile created by the customer) related to the provision of services and the execution of communications related to the performance of services, including operational and management updates, as well as user support;
  • for the operational and technical management of the newsletter subscription dedicated to registered users.

Such data - the provision of which is necessary for the operational performance of services - will also be processed by electronic means, recorded in special databases, and used strictly and exclusively in the context of browsing the Website. Since the communication of your data for the aforementioned purposes is necessary for the purpose of maintaining and providing the services of the Website, failure to do so will make it impossible to provide the specific services in question to you.

  • analysis in an anonymous and aggregate form of the use of the services used, to identify habits and propensities of users, to improve the services provided and to meet specific user needs, i.e., preparation of initiatives related to the improvement of the services provided;
  • whenever necessary for the purpose of ascertaining, exercising or defending a right of the Controller or other companies within the Company's perimeter of control in court.
