The personal data collected by Madbit in relation to the management of contractual relationships, and to any pre-contractual negotiations may be provided:

a) directly by the Data Subject, if the Supplier is an individual or a sole proprietorship; or

Some information, for instance, the details concerning the representatives and attorneys, may also be obtained and/or validated through public sources, including books and lists available from the Chamber of Commerce, from a business information service or from public registers.

Specifically, Personal Data provided by the Data Subjects shall be processed for the following purposes:

a) Negotiating, carrying our precontractual activities, and performing the Agreement, including invoicing and the administrative and accounting management of the Agreement (“Contractual Purposes”).

b) Selecting the Suppliers, also based on audits concerning their compliance with payment, social security, and tax obligations, in accordance with the Suppliers’ qualification process implemented by Madbit, and with the provisions set forth in the internal policies, procedures, codes, and models adopted by Madbit.

c) Enforcing or defending the rights of MadBit, also in the context of credit recovery proceedings.

d) Analysing data in aggregate form in order to optimize operating efficiency and improve business strategies.

e) Performing activities that are preparatory or incidental to operations such as transfers of business or of a part of it, acquisitions, mergers, split-ups, or other company’s transformations, and carrying out any such operations (the purposes from b) to e) above being collectively referred to as the “Legitimate Interest Purposes”), and

f) Discharging obligations arising from the laws, regulations or the European legislation including, without limitation, with regard to tax, corporate, labour and accounting matters, and complying with the relevant requirements, including reporting to the competent authorities and supervisory bodies, and satisfying any requests made by these latter (“Legal Purposes”).

The processing of Data for the Contractual Purposes specified in section 3, letter a) above is mandatory for the proper execution and performance of the Agreement.

The processing of Data for the Legitimate Interest Purposes specified in section 3, letters from b) to e) above, is allowed based on article 6, letter f) of the GDPR, on grounds of the legitimate interests of Madbit to select Suppliers that are adequate in order not to incur joint liability established in the law, to carry out extraordinary corporate transactions, and to protect Madbit’s financial interests. These legitimate interests, in any case, are fairly balanced against the legitimate interests of the Data Subjects, since the processing of Data is limited to what is strictly necessary to pursue the Legitimate Interest Purposes. The processing of Data for the Legitimate Interest Purposes is not mandatory, and the Data Subjects may always object to it in the manners set out in this information notice. Should the Data Subject object to the processing for such purposes, the Data shall not be used for any Legitimate Interest Purposes, unless there are overriding mandatory reasons, or if the use is necessary for the exercise or the defence of legal claims by Madbit.

The processing of Data for the Legal Purposes specified in section 3, letter f), is mandatory. If a Data Subject does not provide Data as necessary for these Legal Purposes, the Agreement cannot be entered into, nor performed.

5. Processing

6. Data retention

Personal data collected for the purposes contemplated under previous section 3 shall be kept for the duration of the Agreement and for a further period of 10 years following termination of it, unless further retention is necessary in connection with litigations, for compliance with a request by a competent authority, or pursuant to the applicable law.

7. Disclosure of data

8. Dissemination and transfer of data

As a general rule, the Data shall not be disseminated nor transferred to countries outside the European Union. However, due to specific needs relating to the location of certain third parties with which the Data may be shared, in compliance with the provisions above, certain Data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area to countries ensuring an adequate level of protection, and also to third countries, including the United States of America.
