2.6.2 Collection of User data
During a User’s registration and later on the Company’s Website, it provides information such as name, email, address, telephone, credit-card number and other relevant data. This information is used by the Company to identify the User and provide them with support, services, mailings, sales and marketing actions, billing and to meet contractual obligations.
The Company's Users can at any time access and edit, update or delete their contact details by logging in with their username and password. The Company will not retain User's data longer than it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
2.6.3 Collection and Processing of Personal Data
The Company relies on the consent of the individual to process Personal Data (for example, when the user inputs personal information into the Website). On other occasions, the Company may process Personal Data when it needs to do this to fulfill a contract or where it is required to do so by law.
The Company may also process Personal Data when it is in its or its Partners' legitimate interests to do so and when these interests are not overridden by the individual’s data protection rights (which may vary based on an individual’s jurisdiction).
2.6.4. Geographical location
The Company offers a number of data regions. A “Data Region” is a set of data centers located within a defined geographical area where Visitor and/or User data is stored.

The Company will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
