We process data for the following purposes:

We process personal information to complete the contract for any service you have ordered, as well as for other customer relationship management related actions, such as communication and direct mail, billing and debt collection, customer relationship-based direct marketing, including targeting it based on work tasks, order history and other information we receive. The processing of personal data is necessary and enables us to send quotes, complete contracts, bill our services, or contact you in matters related to contracts and customer relationship. The processing of personal data is then based on an agreement.

We process your personal information for 
- sending you direct marketing of our products and services (after or without a customer relationship) and other information you have ordered (such as newsletters)
- analysis and development of services and business

If you refuse marketing and there is no other reason for processing, we will keep a record of the prohibition and contact information so that we can ensure compliance with the ban.
