Contacting us: For obvious administrative purposes, we keep copies of your communications with us via the “contact us” page, and we use it to correspond with you about the topics regarding which you contacted us. If you do not enter into a business relationship with us we will be happy to delete such communications if you so request. We will not release to any third party the contents of your communications with us or information about your organization that you provide, except to the extent we are required to do so as a result of legal process, or to the extent you or your organization specifically permit us to do so. You may opt out of communications at any time by sending us a written request to that effect. For proper recordkeeping purposes we reserve the right to maintain archival (inactive) copies of all communications.

We do not collect any personal data as defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR, except that which you voluntarily provide us, which of course is data collected “with consent” pursuant to GDPR Article 7. We do not pass such information on to any third parties or share it with anyone except as set forth above. We use it only to communicate with you as set forth above. Regarding such data, because we collect it directly from you we are neither a “controller” nor a “processor.” Also, we do not intentionally target people in the EU and thus we are exempt from the GDPR. See EDPB, “Guidelines 05/2021 on the Interplay between the application of Article 3 and the provisions on international transfers as per Chapter V of the GDPR” (Nov. 18, 2021). GDPR Article 14, Paragraphs 5(a) and (b), and Article 27, Paragraph 2 also apply.
