2. What data do we collect?

In principle, our digital presence can be used without disclosing any personal data, unless it is stated otherwise in this Privacy Policy.

This encompasses the transfer of data necessary to KYC (“know your customer”) and payment service providers.

3. How do we use your data?

We do not use data as described above for any other purposes, unless you have given your express consent to additional data processing when using certain services.

Collecting data helps us to develop and improve our digital presence and to optimize our services. We will use the data we collect about you as described above for the following purposes:

  • To enable your use of the digital presence (establishing a connection);
