The data we collect varies by activity and may include personal information such as first and last name, e-mail address, telephone number, postcode, city, and other address information. In certain cases, we may also collect your job title and area of activity, as well as other information we may need to provide you with full access to our products and services.

 

b) Use of personal data

We use the personal data you provide exclusively to process your particular request. For example:

It is your decision whether to provide us with your data for the purposes mentioned above. To the extent that your request allows, you may also remain anonymous to us or use a pseudonym.

Furthermore, various plugins are used on our websites, some of which collect personal data. For details, see section 6.

 

The newsletters offered on our websites contain news, offers, invitations to webinars, trade fair dates, and other information about the products and services offered by Starfish Digital.
