Personal information collected from users
Specific personal information, such as your name, phone number or email address, is not automatically gathered.

Unless specifically noted otherwise, neither electronic systems nor e-mail are secure information transmission methods. Therefore, it is not recommended that you send sensitive personal information electronically.
