LAWFUL PROCESSING OF DATA
We collect and process information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable laws. The lawful basis depends on the services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:
We need it in order to provide you the services, including to operate the services, provide customer support and personalised features and to protect the safety and security of the services.
It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests.
You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose.
We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the services.

Due to the nature of our Services, if you stop using our services and do not tell us, your information will remain on our records in case you decide to start using our services again. If you wish for your data to be removed, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org.
