Information we collect includes both information you knowingly and actively provide us and any information automatically sent by your devices in the course of accessing our products and services.

Personal information

When you contact us directly (e.g. via email) or use one of our contact forms we collect the data that is submitted (which might include personal information such as name, email address, phone/mobile number, etc.).
