What Constitutes Personal Information?

Personal information includes data such as email addresses and phone numbers, which are essential for communication and service provision. However, it also extends to sensitive information like racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, criminal records, and health data.

Why We Collect Personal Information

We only use sensitive information under two conditions: with the user’s consent or when legally required.

Third-Party Sources

When possible, we aim to collect personal information directly from users. However, there may be situations where we receive data from third parties. In such cases, we ensure that users are informed about the origin and nature of the data collected.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Personal information may be disclosed under specific circumstances:

  • To third parties with user consent.
  • When required or authorized by law.

Ensuring Security of Personal Information

We prioritize the security of personal information and employ reasonable measures to protect it from misuse, loss, unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure. When personal information is no longer needed for its original purpose, we take steps to destroy or permanently de-identify it.

Retention of Personal Information

In general, most personal information is stored in client files, which are retained for at least seven years to comply with legal and professional requirements.

Maintaining the Accuracy of Personal Information

We strive to maintain the quality of personal information by keeping it accurate, complete, and up to date. Users are encouraged to inform us promptly if their personal information needs updating.

Newsletter Sponsorships

We collaborate with partners to deliver newsletter advertisements and related services across the web and within mobile applications. These partnerships may involve the sharing of personal information for targeted advertising purposes.

Opting Out of Targeted Advertising, Sharing, and Sales

Users may opt out of targeted advertising, sharing, and sales of their personal information. By opting out, users can limit the use of their personal information for preference-based advertising. However, opting out does not eliminate advertisements; instead, it changes them to random selections rather than being based on known preferences.
