We confirm that we will process your personal data & any personal data that we can collect through our Software in a lawful manner which meets requirements of the applicable legislation relating to the processing of personal data, including the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) and that we will otherwise comply with the applicable legislation in relation to the processing of personal data.
