In this case, you act as an independent data controller, assuming all relevant obligations and responsibilities according to the applicable law. In this regard, you waive the right to al disputes, claims, claims for damages, due process of law which may be submitted to the data controller of the third party whose Personal Data have been processed through your use of the Website.

PURPOSES OF THE PROCESSING AND VOLUNTARY OR OBLIGATORY NATURE OF PROVIDING THE DATA
The Personal Data that you provide by using the Website will be processed by the data controller, for the following purposes:
a. Purposes related to the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (e.g., contact request made by using the “Contact Us” form available on the Website,)

The legal basis for the processing of Personal Data for the purposes referred to in point a) is the provision of a service or the response to a request that does not require your previous consent under the applicable law.
The purpose referred to in point b) does not imply the processing of Personal Data, whilst the processing for the purpose referred to in points c) and d) constitutes a legitimate processing of Personal Data according to the applicable law because, once the Personal Data has been provided, the processing is indeed necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Providing your Personal Data for the above-mentioned purposes is voluntary. However, any refusal to provide such data may not leave at the Data Controller to reply to you and to comply with legal obligations to which the data controller is subject.
Your Personal Data may be disclosed just for the reasons specified in section 3:
Subjects necessary for order fulfillment of the services offered through the Website (sending e-mails and analyzing data, which typically process Personal Data on behalf of the data controller as data processors);

Indeed, the transfer of Personal Data is based alternatively on an adequacy decision or the Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the European Commission.
