  • For contract management. If we enter into contract with you or the entity you represent, we process your data (such as full name, position, business address, represented entity’s information, signature) for the agreement conclusion, administration, and termination purposes.
  • Website support and security. Like many websites on the internet our website collects access logs (e.g. your IP address, operating system, browser information). This information is essential for fighting DDoS attacks, scanning and similar hacking attempts. We also use this information to help us to better design our site, to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website.
  • Analysing and improving our website and user experience. For this purpose, we use analytics service providers (e. g. Google Analytics, Hotjar). Aggregate information that they help us collect does not directly identify you, but provide us with various statistics, like which pages visitors visit the most and for how long they stay there. We may also see the following: your device's IP address, device type, browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language, title of the page being viewed, screen size and resolution, outlinks, referrers, page and website speed. For collection of such information our service providers mostly use cookies.

In addition to user email, we may process your basic inquiry and device information and other information that is provided by the user during the conversation.
  • Providing the option to contact us via the chat-bot. If you contact us via the chat-bot on our website, we will process your contact information and information provided in your message.
