The personal information we collect from people who use our Services ("Users") consists primarily of user information such as name, title, gender, business address, telephone number, email address and other personal information provided to us by the User.

In these situations, the technical information may be considered personal data in accordance with applicable data protection law, and we treat the information thus obtained as personal data.
