6. Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.    
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where  we  need  the  personal  information  to  perform  a  contract  with  you,  or  where  the  processing  is  in  our  legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.    
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.    
Mostly, however, we process contacts information for our legitimate business interests in the context of providing or receiving services to customer or from our service providers or in the case of partners, for the purpose of the collaboration or partnership. If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on anything other than our legitimate interests, we will make clear to you at the relevant time. For example, if we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

Thereafter we will erase your information securely once it is no longer needed unless erasure is not possible (for example,  because  your  personal  information  has  been  stored  in  backup  archives),  and  in  which  case  we  will  securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
