This includes, but is not limited to, an obligation to connect you as the Student with the Professional; to connect you as the Professional with the Student; and to send notifications according to your settings. This is the fulfillment of the contract between you and us. For this purpose, we may use your data that you have provided to us or will provide in the future by registering for Blabu accounts or by otherwise registering for or using the Services.
(2) To send newsletters: If you have subscribed to a newsletter, we will occasionally send you a newsletter about our Services to fulfill your order. If you have registered on the Platform and have not refused receiving newsletters about our Services, we may occasionally send you such a newsletter because it is our legitimate interest. You can reject newsletters anytime, as described below. If we explicitly ask you if you want to receive our newsletter and you do not confirm your interest, we take it as a refusal to process and we will not send you newsletters.
(3) To protect our rights. This is particularly in cases when the Provider refuses or cancels the registration. In any case, the Provider may keep your data that is necessary to claim its rights and to know that the Student or Professional was registered or would have liked to have been registered. Also after you cancel your registration, we may need your information to claim or protect our rights. Such purpose is our legitimate interest and we may use your information that you have given us or you will be transmitting in the future during negotiations on use of the Platform.

If you are a Student, each Professional with whom you agree to have a Call (as defined in the Terms) processes your data to negotiate and provide the services as agreed between you and the Professional. That is a fulfilment of a contract between you and the Professional and processing before the contract. For this purpose, the Professional may use your data that you have provided to us or to the Professional or will provide in the future, to the extent necessary for the Call and its processing. If you disclose any personal information to the Professional during the Call the Professional may process it as agreed between you and the Professional from time to time In additional, the Professional will process your data as required by applicable laws (for example for tax and accounting purposes).
