  • Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.

  • Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;

  • Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

  • 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 fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
