What personal information do we collect from the people who visit our website?
When using a contact form, opt-in form or newsletter subscription form on our website, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number or other details to help you with your experience.
When do we collect information?
We collect information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter, fill out a form or enter information on our site.
Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you
When you subscribe to a newsletter, fill out a contact form, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us. In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.
We use the information you provide on a contact form to contact you individually (by telephone, text message, email or other means) and to offer or provide you with our services.
We use the information you provide when you subscribe to a newsletter to send you occasional email newsletters about our Site Owner, our products and services, and related information we believe may interest you. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future email newsletters, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from all correspondence.
Additionally, we may aggregate the information you provide in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
Information we process with your consent
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists — for example, after a long period without interaction with us — after the mandatory period for maintaining this information in accordance with applicable regulations.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at the telephone numbers listed on the Contact Us page. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.

Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so. Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
– whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
– whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
– whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
– record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of the services provided to you by the Site Owner
– responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
– protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
– protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
Information we process because we have a legal obligation
We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorization such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information.
How do we protect your information?
