For safety and security reasons, we require you to verify your account. Your email is requested as part of the account verification process.

Please note that when you set up your account, you are required to provide this information. We use Stripe as our payment processor to securely process and manage payments. By making a payment through our website, you agree that we share your payment and billing details with Stripe. You can find more information about Stripe’s privacy practice at Stripe Privacy Center. We collect this data in order to provide our services (the legal basis for the processing is contractual necessity).

If you contact us (by sending an email, via the chat widget, through our web-contact form, or in any other way), we may receive your name, email, phone number and any personal data included in the message. We process this data in order to respond to your question or request. Are you contacting us for the purpose of using our services? Then this data is processed on the legal basis of the conclusion and execution of agreements. In all other cases, your data is collected on the legal basis of your consent. With our chat widget, you can ask your question online and get a direct answer. We use Intercom to display the chat widget on our website.
