If you decide you want to take some or all of our services, we will subsequently ask you for certain Personal Data for communicating with you, for delivering those services and for accounting and billing purposes.

If, during the performance of that contract and as part of the services we deliver to you, we may be required to process the Personal Data of your customers, employees or clients. In this regard we are a Data Processor and we will have a Data Processor Agreement with you and we have obligations of confidentiality, security and protection of such Personal Data.
