The data can also be used for business and method development, market research, statistics and risk management. The data processed for the purpose of developing and analysing the business is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with article 6, 1 paragraph, f) GDPR to develop the busi-ness and communicate with our clients and other contacts.
