We use the data we collect from you for the following purposes:

We use your data in accordance with laws and regulations
For most of our data gathering and processing, as described in our policy, we ask for your explicit consent. In cases when data collection is performed for other reasons, we inform you and explain these reasons along with their legal basis.
What happens if you refuse to share Personal Data?
Most of the content available on our website can be accessed without providing us with any personal information. If we are to provide you with services you have purchased or requested, we will require some personal information from you in order to issue an agreement, as well as to authenticate you and prove your identity.
How we store your data
We will only store your Personal Information for as long as it is required for the reasons outlined in this Policy. We will keep and use your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to maintain our legal responsibilities (for example, if we are obliged to keep your data to comply with local laws), settle disputes, and enforce our agreements and policies. Your Usage Data will be stored by us for internal analytics reasons, as described in this Policy.
Personal Data transferring
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transported to systems located outside of your state, region, country, or any other administrative domain where the data privacy laws may be different from your jurisdiction.

We will not transfer your data to other parties or locations unless they provide sufficient tools and controls for the protection of the data you provide to us and any other personal information.
Please keep in mind that the US has not requested or obtained a determination of "adequacy" from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR.
