Disclosure of Information
Please note that if you voluntarily submit any Personal Information for posting on the Sites, such as a review or a blog post, the information becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others, so you should use care before posting information about yourself online.
Retention of Personal Information
We retain the Personal Information that we receive for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, to provide our services and products, to pursue legitimate business purposes, to enforce our agreements, and comply with all applicable laws.
We maintain reasonable and appropriate measures designed to maintain the information we collect in a secure manner. We have taken certain physical, electronic, and administrative steps to safeguard and secure the information we collect from visitors to the Sites.
Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet, nor any data storage system, is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information on our or third-party sites. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us using the contact options on our Contact Us page.

Performance of a contract: Provision of Personal Information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-conractual obligations.
Legal obligations: Processing Personal Information is necessary for compliance with a legal oblifation to which the Company is subject.
Legitimate interests: When we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests

We have a legitimate interest in processing your Personal Information for promotional purposes (see above “Basis for Processing Personal Information.” This means we do not usually need your consent to send you promotional communications. However, where consent is needed, we will ask for this consent separately and clearly.
You have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by contacting us by using the contact information detailed in “Contact Us” below.
Where Your Personal Information is Held
Personal Information may be held at our offices and those of our third-party service providers, representatives, and agents as described above (see “Disclosure of Information”).

We may transfer your Personal Data to countries other than the one in which you live, including transfers to the United States. To the extent that Personal Information is transferred abroad, we will ensure compliance with the requirements of the applicable laws in the respective jurisdiction in line with our obligations.
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your Personal Information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g.: Your information, including Personal Information, is processed at the Company's operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. It means that this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of Your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of Your jurisdiction.
