All the processing operations mentioned above are essential to perform the employment relationship or to pursue the Company’s legitimate interests (administrative and accounting necessities, staff management, protect legal prerogatives and/or defend legal claims, business development): an objection on your part would make it impossible to commence or continue your employment relationship with the Company -for this reason, you are not required to confer your consent.
