We process personal data that you voluntarily provide to us when expressing an interest in obtaining information about us or our products and Services, when using our Services or otherwise contacting us.
We also process personal data which we obtain from publicly available resources such as your or your company’s webpage, social networks, public registers and from providers of databases of business contacts who have a valid legal basis for listing such personal data.

Generally, we process the following personal data: full name; postal address; phone numbers; email addresses; and other similar identification and contact details related to your occupation or professional activities such as function or area of responsibility within your company.
We also process personal data regarding the goods or services you purchased from us or you were interested in.
Please note that all personal data that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such personal data.
In Short: We process personal data for business and marketing purposes and to comply with our legal obligations.
In cases where you have specifically ordered any services or goods from us we are processing personal data in order to fulfill our contractual obligations towards you. We also process personal data after the contract was duly performed for the purpose of providing guarantee services, handling any complaints or defend our rights and legal claims which we consider to be our legitimate interest.
If you have expressed your consent we also use personal data in order to send our business offers and other commercial communication. We may also send such commercial communication without your consent where and to the extent allowed by applicable law.
Where we are required to do so by applicable law (e.g. tax law, KYC and AML regulations, etc.) we also process personal data in order to fulfil our legal obligations in that regard.
In Short: We only share personal data if required by applicable law, where necessary to provide you with our Services, and to secure our legitimate interests.
We may need to share your personal data in the following situations:
Provision of Services. For the provision of our Services and related business offers to you or your company we use third-party service providers such as CRM systems, mailing systems, web hosting providers and other standard office software providers with whom if necessary, for the provision of the Services we may sometimes share the personal data we process. In such cases we only share the personal data to the extent that such data must be stored in cloud or otherwise hosted on the servers of the respective provider.
Third-Party Advertisers. We may use third-party advertising companies and their services such as Google Ads, Bing Ads, etc. to serve ads when you use our Services. These companies may use information about your visits to our website(s) and other websites that are contained in web cookies and other tracking technologies in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Transfers to state bodies. In cases provided for by law we might be required to transfer the personal data to the competent state authorities such as trade inspection authorities, tax authorities, police or other public bodies.
Business Transfers. We may share or transfer personal data in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.
In cases where there is a contract between us we keep the necessary personal data for the term of the contract and for a further period of time which equals to the statutory limitation period of the rights and obligations stemming from such contract.
Where we process personal data on the basis of consent the processing will take place only until the consent is revoked.
Once we have no legitimate legal basis to process the personal data, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because it has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store the personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
In Short: We aim to protect personal data through a system of organizational and technical security measures.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal data we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect all personal data by using state-of-the-art security technologies, transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment.
