If the communication contains data of a special nature, these will only be processed when it is strictly necessary for the adoption of corrective measures and/or the initiation of the corresponding investigation procedure and/or the processing of disciplinary or criminal procedures that, if where applicable, proceed in accordance with current legislation and, in these cases, the legal basis will be the essential public interest. The processing of personal data will be indispensable when without them the objectives and obligations stipulated by Law 2/2023 cannot be met.
