PD are processed for the performance of a contract in relation to an order placed, including all activities necessary for its implementation and management.

Compliance with legal obligations (Article 6(1)(c) GDPR):
PD are also processed for the purpose of compliance with obligations imposed by law towards particular authorities (e.g. tax office, local health insurance fund, etc.) and in relation to the guarantee, warranty, time barring and statutory retention periods applicable to KE KELIT, and thereafter until the termination of any legal disputes in which data are required as evidence.

Balancing of interests (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR):

Recipients of PD

Within KE KELIT your PD may be accessed by the employees required in order to comply with contractual, statutory and/or administrative duties and to uphold its legitimate interests. In addition, your PD may be received by data processors contracted by KE KELIT (including in particular IT and back office service providers, accountants etc.), where these data are required in order to provide the relevant service.
