What is personal data and what is processing of personal data?
Personal data are all kinds of information that can be directly or indirectly linked to you personally. For example, your name, address, telephone number and email adress. Images and sound recordings that are processed online can be personal data even if no names are mentioned. Encrypted data and different types of electronic identities (such as IP numbers) are personal data if they can be linked to you as a person.
Processing of personal data is all that happens with the personal data. Any action taken with personal data is a treatment, regardless of whether it is performed automated or not. Examples of common treatments are collection, registration, organization, structuring, storage, processing, transfer and deletion.

We collect information that helps us provide you with information, quotes, inquiries, and other types of information such as emails, as well as to provide, evaluate, develop and improve our services, products, and systems.
