This data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use it to do
so. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but maintain

The database and its contents remain at our company and stay with data processors
or servers acting on our behalf and responsible to us. Your personal data will not
be passed on by us or by our agents for use by third parties in any form whatsoever,

differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. In such cases, we will ensure that
appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country
to maintain protections on the data that are equivalent to those that apply in the
country in which you live.

requested products or services or for other purposes for which you have given your
consent, except where otherwise provided by law.
