Managing personal information
You are able to access, add to, update and delete certain Personal Information about you. The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Website or Services change.

Use and processing of collected information
Any of the information we collect from you may be used to
improve customer service and respond to queries and emails of our customers;
run and operate our Website and Services. Information collected via our mobile
SDK is used for the purpose of delivering ads that we believe you may be
interested in. Non-Personal Information collected is used only to identify
potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding
Website usage. This statistical information is not used in such a way that
would identify any particular user of the system.
We may process Personal Information related to you if one of the following applies:
1. You have given consent for one or more specific purposes. Note that under some legislations we may be allowed to process information until you object to such processing (by opting out), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases below. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Information is subject to EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) under the European Data Protection Law;
2. Provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof;
3. Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject;
4. Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
5. Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing in your case, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
