      • To comply with a legal or regulatory obligation by the controller (for example, Federal Law No. 12,965/2014 determines that internet application providers have the duty to store information relating to the date and time of use of a given application internet from a specific IP address for six months, in which case, this data can only be collected and stored based on this legal basis);
      • For the execution of a contract or preliminary procedures related to a contract to which the holder is a party, at the request of the holder of personal data (for example, in cases where the website or application sells a product that will be delivered to the user’s home , in which case it will be necessary to store transaction data and some registration data, in order to enable compliance with the contract);
      • When necessary to meet the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party (for example, in cases where targeted marketing is sent based on the interests of the controller, provided that all LGPD requirements are observed);
      • For the regular exercise of rights in judicial, administrative or arbitration proceedings (for example, in the case of storing commercial transactions carried out within a website or application, until the end of the five-year statute of limitations provided for in the Consumer Protection Code );
      • For credit protection (for example, in cases where a financial institution uses user data to make inquiries at credit bureaus , in order to avoid default).
    • In the case of sensitive personal data, this model considers the processing carried out:
      • With the consent of the holder of personal data;
      • To comply with legal or regulatory obligations by the controller;
      • For the regular exercise of rights in judicial, administrative proceedings or arbitration;
      • To guarantee the prevention of fraud and the security of the holder, in the processes of identification and authentication of registration in electronic systems, safeguarding the rights of the holder and except in the case where fundamental rights and freedoms of the holder prevail that require data protection personal (for example, in cases where biometrics are absolutely necessary to guarantee the security of a certain transaction carried out on the website or application).
    • The law also provides for other legal bases. However, this document only allows you to choosebetween the legal bases informed in this section, so that, if the personal data processing operations carried out by the website or application are or must be justified based on other legal bases not mentioned here, This model should not be used.
