Registering with WEBSITE

If you choose to register with WEBSITE, you allow OWNER and its agents to collect, store, use, disclose, and otherwise process your personal data in connection with the purposes as described above.

We would like to send you information about WEBSITE services, which may include information or offers from our partners, that may interest you by means of e.g. e-mail, post, or other communication channels, but we will only do so if you specifically consent to receive such communications from WEBSITE. You will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe from any further communication from WEBSITE by using one of the following unsubscribe options:

How do we share your personal information?

OWNER will not sell, rent, lease, or share your personal data with its partners participating in WEBSITE or other third parties, allowing them to use your personal data for their own purposes. However, OWNER may share some anonymised or aggregated information about your WEBSITE profile with its partners in the WEBSITE website.

OWNER may share your personal information with other digispaced companies around the world for purposes related to the activities or operations of WEBSITE.

Furthermore, OWNER will release your personal data if so required by law, where necessary for preventing or combating fraud, where necessary for dispute resolution, or for any other pressing legitimate need that under the circumstances must outweigh your privacy interests, such as the security of our business and the safety of our staff.
