Most likely it would rely on legitimate interest as no other grounds would be applicable. But this would require also to perform an Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA). If however, the activity is performed at the instructions of another company, then a data processor would not need a legal basis, but do so based on the contract with that company and based on its instructions. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
