2.Purpose and legitimacy of processing

Your data is processed for the following purposes:

A. Processing enquiries

Users' personal data will be used to process their enquiry and to offer them a personalised reply through any of the means of communication listed in the form or employed by the users themselves; e.g., if the enquiry is made through a social network messenger service, Correos may respond using the same channel.

B. Complying with legal obligations

In compliance with its obligations, Correos may forward your data to Public Administrations and courts of law, provided that this information is required in accordance with established legal procedures.

C. Statistical information and customer-satisfaction surveys.

Correos has a legitimate interest in knowing its users' opinions regarding its user services and/or query resolution service.

     - In order to achieve the above objective, Correos may process your data and:

     - Carry out customer satisfaction surveys by telephone or online.

Undertake its anonymisation, so that the information concerning your consumer habits cannot subsequently be linked to your person, and then carry out statistical and econometric studies (e.g. finding the user's life cycle and/or identifying models of propensity to abandonment).

3.Type of data processed

For the purposes detailed above, a set of personal data is processed that can be divided into the following sources and categories:

A. Data directly provided by the user:

When making or processing a query.

The user guarantees that the data given to Correos for the provision of the requested services accurately describe the real situation and that they will inform Correos of any modification that affects it. Consequently, the user will be responsible to Correos and third parties for any loss or damage that may result from non-compliance with the obligations assumed in this clause.

Unless otherwise stated, all the data collected in contact forms or requested for their processing will be obligatory.

4. Data storage time

Your personal data will be kept as long as necessary to carry out the contractual relationship. Once that period has expired, the data will be erased in accordance with data protection regulations, which involves blocking them; they will only be available at the request of judges and courts of law, the Public Prosecutor and competent Public Administrations during the limitation period for the actions that could arise. They will subsequently be eliminated. In general, they will be erased after a period of 3 years.
