1) Automatic Collection of Information. When you access the Service, our servers automatically record information that your device sends. This data may include information such as your device’s IP address and location, device name and version, operating system type and version, language preferences, information you search for in our Service, access times and dates, and other statistics. Information collected automatically is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding Service traffic and usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.
2) Collection of Personal Information. You can access the Service (including our websites) as a potential client or a patron of one of our clients without telling us who you are or revealing any information by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. If, however, you wish to use some of the Service’s features (for example, to contact us, request information, make a purchase, etc.), you will be asked to provide certain Personal Information (for example, your name and e-mail address). We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us when you create an account, publish content, make a purchase, or fill any online forms in the Service (or a user of the Service fills them in on your behalf for example for a mail or phone order, etc.). When required, this information may include the following:
• Personal details such as name, birthday, gender, country of residence, etc.
• Contact information such as email address, phone, address, etc.
• Account details such as username, unique user ID, password, etc.

• Any other materials you willingly submit to us such as articles, images, feedback, etc.
You can choose not to provide us with your Personal Information (unless you wish to be a client or client authorized user), but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Service’s features. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) Storing Personal Information. We will retain and use your Personal Information for the period necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and, in particular, whether the provision of Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
6) Information Transfer and Storage. BravoBase uses Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) secure servers located in the United States, which are paid for and managed by us, to process and store all data on the Service. Depending on your location, data transfers may involve transferring and storing your information in a country other than your own. You are entitled to learn about the legal basis of information transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by us to safeguard your information.

8) The Right to Object to Processing. Where Personal Information is processed for the public interest, in the exercise of an official authority vested in us or for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, you may object to such processing by providing a ground related to your particular situation to justify the objection. You must know that, however, should your Personal Information be processed for direct marketing purposes, you can object to that processing at any time without providing any justification.
