Legal basis for processing
The General Data Protection Regulation requires data controllers to demonstrate one of these six legal bases for processing: consent, necessity, contract requirement, legal obligation, protection of data subject, public interest, or legitimate interest of the controller. The controller is required to provide a privacy notice, specify in the privacy notice the legal basis for the processing personal data in each instance of processing, and when relying on the legitimate interest ground must describe the legitimate interests pursued.
