Once the contract stipulated, the provision of further necessary data, or the updating of those already provided, is mandatory for all that is required by legal and contractual obligations and, therefore, any refusal to supply them in whole or in part can give rise to the impossibility for the Owner to execute the contract and could in any case constitute a breach of contract or a violation of the law by the User / Customer. The legal basis of the processing for the aforementioned purposes derives from the fact that the processing itself is necessary for the execution of the contract of which the interested party is a part (or, in the pre-contractual phase, in relation to pre-contractual measures in the context of the contracting procedure) , or to fulfill legal obligations connected to the contract itself, or in any case to the supply of the product and/or service.
