If you are in the European Economic Area or the UK, we only process your personal information when we have a valid legal basis.

  • Consent. We may use your personal information when you have given your consent to do so.
  • Contractual necessity. We may use your personal information to perform our end of our contracts with you. For example, to provide you with the Services.
  • Legal obligation. We may use your personal information when we are legally required to. For example, to comply with tax and accounting obligations, or to comply with a court order.
