- We process it just because we cannot perform our contractual obligations without processing it;
- We process it for the purposes of the legitimate interests, pursued by Podix (for example: marketing).
- We process it when the data subject has given us his/her consent to process it.
We may also process personal data on a different occasion but only when the processing is permitted by the specific legal grounds, as set out in the General Data Protection Regulation.
Sometimes we might have access to personal data which is collected by our clients (the personal data controllers). If Podix is acting in the capacity of personal data processor, Podix shall always follow the processing instructions given by the client and also the obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation.

We are determined to provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of this Regulation and ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
