We collect personal data in the following ways:
Active collection means personal data you provide to us when you share your request for quotations with us. We may ask you to provide us with your name, your surname, your company or institution name, your email address, your contact number, your address, and other limited amounts of personal data. We process such personal data for the purpose of providing our services to you, to connect you with our trading/manufacturing entities, and to communicate with you regarding the services. Providing such personal data is voluntary. However, without providing such personal data, we will not be able to process your request for quotations and you will not be able to sign up for an account. We will further use this personal data to optimize our products, learn more about our customers, including to build a database of interested consumers who can help us finalize and customize our products, identify potential early adopters and provide you updates on our products if you do expressly confirm that you wish to receive such updates. We do not collect any credit card or other payment card data from you via the Platform. For the avoidance of any doubt, no financial transaction shall take place via this Platform.
For EEA data subjects: The legal basis for the processing of the above personal data relating to active collection in some cases will be the contract on the use of the Platform concluded with you. The legal basis for the processing of the above personal data in some cases will be our legitimate interest, which is the use of personal data to connect you with our trading/manufacturing entities, develop our products and our business. We have assessed in a balancing test that the processing is necessary to achieve our aforementioned legitimate interests and that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms.
We will also use your personal data to send you email and other marketing messages about our products. The personal data we collect allows us to keep you posted on our latest product announcements. If the law requires us to do so, we will first seek your consent before sending you marketing messages. For EEA data subjects: We will only send you marketing messages when you have consented to receive them. The legal basis for the processing of such personal data is consent.
