5. What is the legal basis for the processing of personal data?
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data for the above purposes is:

- article 6 (1) point (f) of the GDPR – if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Prouvé, including the following purposes:
- direct marketing;
- making notifications relevant for the cooperation with the Partner;
- the necessity to conduct negotiations in order to conclude and perform a contract with a contractor of Prouvé represented by a natural person (when processing personal data of representatives of the Prouvé’s contractor);
- establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
- verification if the period of six months from the termination of the previous distribution agreement has expired, before you open a new Partner Account.

However, your personal data in the form of your first name and surname, e-mail address, NIP No. (or a relevant identification number) will be stored by Prouvé not less than 6 months after termination of a distribution agreement. We believe that we have a legitimate interest in verifying whether the Partner candidate who creates a Partner Account has been already our Partner and whether the period of 6 months from the termination of the previous agreement has expired, which determines the creation of a new Partner Account (in accordance with the provision of point 3.12. subpoint (3) of the Terms and Conditions of Cooperation).
Additionally, when we process your personal data on the basis of your extra consents – naturally, providing you grant them, we will process the personal data until the time you withdraw the consent as previously given. When we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes – we process them until you object to the processing.
Otherwise we may decide to finish processing your personal data if we establish that the consents you granted became out-dated.
In summary, we store your data for no longer than this is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected, unless we are required by applicable provisions of law to store them for a longer period of time.
