It is possible to obtain data from entities that employ you or represent you, and the scope of this data only includes information necessary for the conclusion and implementation of the contract and cannot include data unnecessary for this purpose.

    We may also obtain data from internal databases maintained by the Company, entries to which are made based on prior consent.

4. Legal basis for data processing:

Data is processed only when:

The information is made available based on the consent of the Training Participant who provides the appropriate certificates.
