Data processing is also carried out on the basis of legal requirements, e.g. for the prevention of fraud and money laundering, the fulfilment of control and reporting obligations under tax law and the assessment and management of risks. Such processing results from Art. 6 para. 1, sent. 1 lit. c) DSGVO, according to which the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation.
