We recommend that you read the privacy policies in full. It explains who we are, how and why we collect personal data from you, how and why it will be processed by us and our commitment to protecting your data.

  • We will keep your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose it was collected. How long we need your personal data depends on what we are using it for, whether that is to provide support to you, for our own legitimate interests or so that we can comply with the law.
