How we Collect and Use Your Personal Data
The types of information that you provide actively and that we collect automatically depend on your level of engagement with our Services. The higher the level of your engagement, the more information we need to serve you.
We collect Information, some of which contains Personal Data that you provide directly to us through responses to special Services such as surveys, questionnaires and the like. We use this data to personalise our Services and to optimize your customer experience when using our Website.
