We will not, under any circumstance, require information such as:
- Your sexuality and health

- Your trade union membership, or a professional or trade association

Personal Information through our Website
Once you access our website, we will automatically collect some information about you, such as device type and IP address. In addition, we will also gather information about the pages you have visited and the links you have accessed from our domain. We are doing this in order to have a better understanding of how you are using our services – therefore allowing us to improve your experience.
Some of the data is collected automatically through cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that are sent to the browser and are stored into your computer’s hard drive. They will not personally identify you.
If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can change your security settings on your web browser and disable them. You may also have your browser warn you when cookies are being used. However, by doing that, you may not be able to use certain parts of the website, and your activity may be limited.
Once you comment on our website, it means that you are giving your consent for this comment to appear on it. Your name and email address will not be made public on our website and won’t be shared with any third party – unless you specifically set it that way. We are not accountable for other individuals’ unauthorized use of the information that you voluntarily share.
If you choose to interact with any of our social media featured on the website, you should know that any action on those accounts is available in public.
Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information
In the event that we use your personal information, it can be used to:
- Assist the website with our planning, auditing, marketing, billing, product development, and research requirements
- Ensure the website’s proper functioning
Therefore, we use your personal data to properly manage our website and offer you any requested service. We may also use it to communicate with you when you request information from us, ask us for feedback, or take part in any of our research.
Your personal information is used to monitor the way you use the website, so we can improve it – and therefore, offer our audience a better experience.
Additionally, we may use it to send you marketing communications, or display targeted advertising to you online.
Personal Information Security
Your personal information can either be stored in hard-copy form or electronically. Regardless of the format, we will make sure to keep your personal information safe and will take the necessary measures to protect it from misuse, disclosure, loss, and modification. Still, you must consider the risks when using the website and know that we accept no responsibility for information that was shared publicly – whether we are deemed to have been negligent or not. This situation applies when your privacy is affected.
Keep in mind that no information transmitted over the internet is guaranteed to be fully safe. We will, however, do our best to take care of your information as efficiently as possible – but we cannot guarantee its safety. Information exchange is carried out at your own risk.

Every concern or complaint should be made in written form. Please send it to us through the Contact Us page, and we will answer as soon as possible.
Disposal of the Unrequired Information
If we own personal information that is not needed for any purpose, we will take measures to destroy or de-identify that information. We will do so unless we are prevented by the law.
