Collection of personal information
You can access and use the Website and Services without telling us who you are or revealing any information by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. If, however, you wish to use some of the features offered on the Website, you may be asked to provide certain Personal Information (for example, your name and e-mail address).
We receive and store any information you knowingly provide us when you fill out any forms on the Website. This information may include contact information (email address, phone number, etc.) when required.
You can choose not to provide us with your Personal Information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the features on the Website. Users uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact us.

We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Information through the Website and Services without their permission. We also ask that all parents and legal guardians overseeing the care of children take the necessary precautions to ensure that their children are instructed never to give out Personal Information when online without their permission.
Use and processing of collected information.
We act as a data controller and a data processor when handling Personal Information unless we have entered into a data processing agreement with you. In this case, you would be the data controller, and we would be the data processor.
Our role may also differ depending on the specific situation involving Personal Information. We act as a data controller when we ask you to submit the Personal Information necessary to ensure your access and use of the Website and Services. In such instances, we are data controllers because we determine the purposes and means of processing Personal Information.
We act in the capacity of a data processor in situations when you submit Personal Information through the Website and Services. We do not own, control, or make decisions about the submitted Personal Information, which is processed only per instructions. In such instances, the User providing Personal Information acts as a data controller.
To make the Website and Services available to you or to meet a legal obligation, we may need to collect and use certain Personal Information. If you do not provide the information we request, we may be unable to provide you with the requested products or services. Any of the information we collect from you may be used for the following purposes:
Respond to inquiries and offer support.
Run and operate the Website and Services.
Processing your Personal Information depends on how you interact with the Website and Services, where you are located in the world, and if one of the following applies: (i) you have given your consent for one or more specific purposes; (ii) provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/and any pre-contractual obligations thereof; (iii) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject; (iv) processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or exercise of official authority vested in us; (v) processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by a third party or by us.
Note that under some legislations, we may be allowed to process information until you object to such processing by opting out without relying on consent or other legal bases. In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, mainly whether the provision of Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
Disclosure of information
Depending on the requested Services or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any Service you have requested, we may share your information with our affiliates, contracted companies, and service providers (collectively, “Service Providers”) we rely upon to assist in the operation of the Website and Services available to you and whose privacy policies are consistent with ours or who agree to abide by our policies concerning Personal Information. We will not share any personally identifiable information with third parties and will not share any information with unaffiliated third parties.
Service Providers are not authorized to use or disclose your information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. Service Providers are given n the required information and only serve their designated functions. We do not authorize them to use or disclose any of the provided information for their eating or other purposes.
We may also disclose any Personal Information we collect, use, or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

We will retain and use your Personal Information for the period necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to race our agreements, and resolve disputes unless a more extended retention period is required or permitted by law.

Our Website and Services use “cookies” to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie. You may learn more about cookies and how they work in this guide.
Do Not Track signals
Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information about a website. Tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. As a result, the Website and Services are not yet set up to interpret or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. Even so, as described in more detail throughout this Policy, we limit our use and collection of your Personal Information.
Social media features
We offer electronic newsletters to which you may voluntarily subscribe at any time. We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We will disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the information use and processing section or to utilize a third-party provider to send such emails. We will maintain the information sent via e-mail by applicable laws and regulations.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from us will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on contacting the sender. You may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails or by contacting us.
