  • is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
  • is based on your explicit consent.

These decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9 (1) unless point a or g of Article 9 (2) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
If the decision is not based on statutory provisions, the data controller implements suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express an own point of view and to contest the decision.
