Streamline day-to-day privacy management: perform and document legitimate interest balancing tests and manage legal obligations.
GDPR requires any organization processing personal data to have a valid legal basis for each processing activity. The most effective legal basis for processing depends on the purpose for processing, the relationship with the data subject and the type of personal data being processed. Deciding which legal basis is appropriate for processing activities is incredibly important. When the wrong legal basis is chosen, it could result in unlawful processing, inadequate organizational and technical measures and noncompliant response to data subject access requests.
