Once again, we need to make it clear that we will not collect any personal data about our users without asking and getting their clear consent. Consequently, we rarely gather information that can be used to identify our users or that could be seen as being of a sensitive nature. Usually, this type of data refers to:

The main reason we collect this information is for statistical or contact purposes. We do it because we aim to offer relevant content to our visitors.
