III. Use of Data
Why We Collect Data
Sometimes the reason for collection of Data will be obvious (such as when you give us your email address to allow us to contact you). When it is not, we will describe to you at the time of collection the purpose for collecting the data and most likely ask for your consent. To the extent possible, we anonymize or pseudonymize data we collect from you.
In general, we do not intentionally collect sensitive personal data. Sensitive personal data refers to personal identity numbers; financial account information; information concerning racial or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious, philosophical, or other beliefs; membership in trade unions or professional or trade associations; physical or mental health information; biometric data; genetic data; data concerning sexual activity or orientation; or data concerning criminal records or suspected criminal activity. However, if you provide us with sensitive personal data, whether through the Website or through any of our products or services, including the Service, you explicitly consent to our use and processing of that data.
How We Use Data
We use the data we collect from you to provide information and services you have requested and to allow you to interact with us and the website.
This may include sending you emails from time to time; these emails always contain either information you have requested or that you have consented to receive, or information we have a legitimate interest in delivering (such as notices of service changes).

When applicable we analyze this information to improve our website, improve the products and services we provide, and to protect us and you from malicious web activity.

If your account is inactive, your data will only be stored so that the account can be reactivated in the future, and your data will not be processed for any other purpose.
