The purposes of the processing of the User’s personal data carried out by Comunicaffe International, together with the relative legal basis, can be summarised as follows:

– Providing the good and/or service requested by the user, managing the contracts perfected by the user, carrying out the relative administrative, accounting, fiscal and legal fulfilments, as well as processing the requests forwarded by the user. The processing operations carried out for these purposes are necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations and do not require the specific consent of the person concerned.
