WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?


Anonymous Browsing

In this case, our web servers may collect the name of the domain you have used to access the Internet, the name of your internet service provider and the website you came from and visit next. This information does not identify you as an individual and is used solely for the purpose of statistics and improving the attractiveness, content, and functionality of our Site. Where any such data is passed on to external service providers, we will take technical and organizational measures to ensure that data protection regulations are observed.
