Legal Basis: Contract

Understanding Contract as a Legal Basis

Contractual Relationship: Contract serves as the second legal basis for data processing, typically applicable when there's an existing contract with the individual.

Application of Contract

  • Fulfillment of Contract: Personal data processing may be necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or provide requested information about services.
  • Third-Party Involvement: When processing another individual's data under a contract, consider using a different lawful basis.
  • Initiative Contact: Initiating contact based on third-party suggestions may not align with the contract as a lawful basis.

Limitations of Contractual Basis

Scope of Processing: Processing under contract should strictly align with fulfilling the terms of the contract. Contacting customers for additional services may require a different lawful basis.
