The primary purpose of collecting your personal data is to provide our services to you, to perform a contract or to prepare the contract, and to manage and maintain the customer relationship between us and you/the company you represent as a manager, employee, representative, or in any other capacity. In this case, our processing of personal data is based on the contract between you and us, or on our legitimate interest if the contract is between the company you represent and us. We aim to process any personal data for this purpose in an appropriate, fair and effective manner.

2. Marketing

We may send you emails to inform you about new features of our services, ask you for feedback, or provide you other relevant information about our services.

5. Data related to assessment of solvency and debt recovery

We also process personal data to evaluate your solvency or that of the company you represent. We also carry out this assessment with a purpose to manage information about your debts to us and your solvency potential.
