Use and processing of collected information.
We act as a data controller and a data processor when handling Personal Information unless we have entered into a data processing agreement with you; in this case, you would be the data controller, and we would be the data processor.
Our role may also differ depending on the specific situation involving Personal Information. We act as a data controller when we ask you to submit your Personal Information necessary to ensure your access and use of the Services. In such instances, we are a data controller because we determine the purposes and means of processing Personal Information.
We act in the capacity of a data processor in situations when you submit Personal Information through the Services. We do not own, control, or make decisions about the submitted Personal Information, which is processed only per your instructions. In such instances, the User providing Personal Information acts as a data controller.

In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, mainly whether the provision of Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
In case of Services requiring payment, you may need to provide your credit card details or other payment account information, which will be used solely for processing payments. We use third-party payment processors (“Payment Processors”) to assist us in processing your payment information securely.

Sensitive and private data exchange happens over an SSL-secured communication channel. It is encrypted and protected with digital signatures, and the Services are also in compliance with strict vulnerability standards to create as secure an environment as possible for Users. We will share payment data with the Payment Processors only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing your payments, refunding such payments, and dealing with complaints and queries related to such payments and refunds.
Please note that the Payment Processors may collect some Personal Information from you, which allows them to process your payments (e.g., your email address, address, credit card details, and bank account number) and handle all the steps in the payment process through their systems, including data collection and data processing. Where necessary for processing future or recurring payments and subject to your prior consent, your financial information will be stored in encrypted form on secure servers of our Payment Processors. The Payment Processors’ use of your Personal Information is governed by their respective privacy policies, which may or may not contain privacy protections as protective as this Policy. We suggest that you review their respective privacy policies.

Do Not Track signals
Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked.
