  3. to perform functional purposes connected to the activities carried out by the companies of LSEG, such as - by way of an example - the performance of:
    • customer surveys, carried out by means of personal or telephone interviews, questionnaires, etc., regarding the quality of the services rendered;
    • market analysis;
    • informative, statistical or scientific activities;

The Data subject is also given the opportunity to express his consent to the receipt of such communications only through traditional means of contact.

However, failure to provide them would make it impossible for GATElab to keep Data subjects up-to-date on events, conventions, promotion of new products and services or to provide the same with publications and with other informative material.
