YOU MAY WITHDRAW OR MODIFY YOUR CONSENT TO ANY OF THESE AT ANY POINT.
We point out that according to Art 6 GDPR in some cases, data processing is possible without explicit consent. http://www.privacy-regulation.eu/en/article-6-lawfulness-of-processing-GDPR.htm
“1. Processing shall be lawful only if and to the extent that at least one of the following applies…”
- f) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.”
Recital 47: http://www.privacy-regulation.eu/en/r47.htm
“(47) The legitimate interests of a controller, including those of a controller to which the personal data may be disclosed, or of a third party, may provide a legal basis for processing, provided that the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overriding, taking into consideration the reasonable expectations of data subjects based on their relationship with the controller.
Such legitimate interest could exist for example where there is a relevant and appropriate relationship between the data subject and the controller in situations such as where the data subject is a client or in the service of the controller.
At any rate, the existence of a legitimate interest would need careful assessment including whether a data subject can reasonably expect at the time and in the context of the collection of the personal data that processing for that purpose may take place.
The interests and fundamental rights of the data subject could in particular override the interest of the data controller where personal data are processed in circumstances where data subjects do not reasonably expect further processing.
Given that it is for the legislator to provide by law for the legal basis for public authorities to process personal data, that legal basis should not apply to the processing by public authorities in the performance of their tasks.
The processing of personal data strictly necessary for the purposes of preventing fraud also constitutes a legitimate interest of the data controller concerned.
The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes may be regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest.”
If you have any doubts or concerns regarding the way in which we process and/or use your personal data or would like to exercise any of the aforementioned rights, get in contact with LUCIENT or right to us at the following address dpo at lucient.com directly contacting our Data Protection Officer and we will resolve any doubts or incidents concerning the protection of your personal data.
