Purpose and legal basis of the processing operation

Below we explain the legal basis of the data processing we carry out:

The purposes for which we collect information are as follows: The handling of this information is justified by :
The performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, for the processing of data relating to the provision of a service. The same applies to the processing of data in connection with the execution of pre-contractual measures, e.g. for requests concerning our products or services.

Compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, e.g. compliance with tax obligations. Art. 6, par. 1 lit c of the GDR
Safeguarding the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. For example, if a visitor is injured during a visit to one of our agencies and must therefore provide his or her name, age, social insurance number or other essential information to a doctor, hospital or other third party. L'art. 6, al. 1 lit d du GDPR.
The data processing measures are necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. Such processing measures are particularly permissible for us as they are specifically mentioned in European legislation. European law considers that a legitimate interest may exist if the data subject is a customer of the controller (consideration 47, 2nd sentence, of the GDPR). L'art. 6, al. 1 lit f du GDPR.
The execution of our business activities for the prosperity of all our employees, customers and shareholders. For example, and among others:
  • ensuring the proper administration and management of our customer relationships,
  • understand how our customers use our services and optimize our vehicle fleet,
  • analyse what services or products our customers want or how they would like our services and products to be improved,
  • understand how our customers use our websites and identify problems with the use of the websites,
  • improve the customer's user experience,
  • inform our customers about the different products and services we offer and inform them about new products and services,
  • understand and respond to customer feedback in the best possible way,
  • improve the promotions and benefits we can offer to our customers,
  • manage disputes and accidents and obtain legal or professional advice.
L'art. 6, al. 1 lit f du GDPR.
Apart from the above cases, our company takes as a legal basis for the processing of personal data art. 6, par. 1, lit. a of the GDPR, and we ask for consent for each specific purpose. L'art. 6, al. 1 lit f du GDPR.
