  • Performance of a contract: Provision of personal data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof.

  • Legal obligations: Processing personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.

  • Vital interests: Processing personal data is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or of another natural person.

  • Public interests: Processing personal data is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Company.

  • Legitimate interests: Processing personal data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the Company.

 

In any case, we will gladly help to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract. contact@besthrblog.com.

We use the personal information that we collect or receive for the business purposes as described above. We may disclose the above listed categories of personal information to third parties for business purposes as described above. As previously mentioned in this Policy, we do not “sell” (as such term is defined in the CCPA) personal information.

We will verify your request using the information associated with your account, including email address. Government identification may also be required. 

A request for access can be made by you only twice within a 12-months period. Any disclosures that we provide will only cover the 12-months period preceding receipt of your request. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable User request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will inform you of the reasons for such decision and provide you with a cost estimate before processing further your request.
