Why we collect personal information
As an online business, it is necessary for us to collect personal information from our Platform users, and from other persons who contact us from time to time. We may need to access personal information in order to apply technical support to a particular user or to answer questions about an an experience that a user may have when using our Platform. The majority of personal information we collect relates to users of our Platform. We may collect personal information if it is provided to us via our web site, via email, by telephone, or via application forms. We may obtain personal information directly from third parties such as our sales agents and any of their representatives. In addition, we may obtain personal information from public sources, where available. However, if it is reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect personal information about an individual only from that individual.
Personal information we collect
At present, the personal information we may collect includes names, telephone numbers, mobile numbers, email addresses, IP addresses, and any other personal information that a person voluntarily discloses to us.

A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Platform. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Platform. Some features of the Platform may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

Some features of the Platform, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.
