Legal basis for processing personal data in MCS
The primary legal basis for the processing of personal data is legitimate interests of MCS to conduct its business as an IT service provider, GDPR Art 6(1) f.
In some cases, the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, GDPR Art 6(1)b is the legal basis.
For the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1)c GDPR.
Processing may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, say where vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1)d GDPR. Health data is considered special category data under GDPR Article 9 and MCS processes health data as per GDPR Articles 9 (b, c&d).
