Some areas of our website require you to be registered with us prior to certain information or services being made available. We may request optional information from you, for example on your business and business interests. We request this optional information, e.g. to provide more tailored products and services to you and so that we may understand our users better. Optional information will be marked as such.
We collect personal information only when you specifically and knowingly give it to us, for example by filling out an online form or by sending an email. We record what time you give us this information and keep track of where it is sent to.
