Personally Identifiable Information we collect through our Services may include information requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and more. When we combine Personal Data with non-Personal Data, as long as it is in combination, we will treat it as Personal Data.


How do we collect data?
Below are the main methods we use to collect data:

We collect data when you use our services. So, when you visit our digital assets and use services, we may collect, record and store usage, sessions and related information.

We collect data that you provide to us yourself, for example, when you contact us directly through a communication channel (such as an email with a comment or feedback).

We may collect data from third-party sources, as described below.

We collect data that you provide to us when you sign in to our Services through a third-party provider, such as Facebook or Google.

  • to analyze request and usage patterns;

We will not share your email address or other personally identifiable information with advertisers or advertising networks without your consent.

Please note that we retain the data we collect for as long as is necessary to provide our services, to comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.

We may correct, amend or delete inaccurate or incomplete data at any time at our sole discretion.


How do we protect the data?
The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data may be stored via our hosting provider's data storage, databases and general applications. It stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall and it provides secure HTTPS access to most areas of its services.

Notwithstanding the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and do not guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, post or otherwise share with us or others.

For this reason, we ask that you establish strong passwords and, whenever possible, do not provide us or others with confidential information that you believe could cause you significant or lasting harm if disclosed. In addition, because e-mail and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we ask that you not share confidential information through either of these communication channels.

How do we deal with minors?

The Services are not intended for users who have not reached the legal age of majority. We will not knowingly collect information from children. If you are under the age of majority, you should not download or use the Services or provide any information to us.

We reserve the right to request proof of age at any time so that we can verify whether minors are using our Services. In the event that we become aware that a minor is using our Services, we may prohibit such users from accessing our Services and block them, and we may delete any information we hold about such user. If you have reason to believe that a minor has disclosed data to us, please contact us as explained below.

We do not sell users' personal information for the intent and purposes of the CCPA.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time in our sole discretion, and the version posted on the Site will always be current (see the "Status" statement). We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy for changes. In the event of material changes, we will post a notice to that effect on our Website.
