Information on the transfer of your personal data outside of the European Economic Area?

As we are a Luxembourg based company, we comply with the EU Data Protection Regulation, “GDPR.” Regardless of whether you are located in Europe or elsewhere, our own location in Europe requires us to comply with GDPR. You can read the entire Regulation here.

During the course of the operation and exploitation of the site and the provision of the services, your personal data may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to third parties data processors located in the United States and other countries outside of where you live, for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

If we transfer your personal data outside of the EEA, we endeavor to ensure that your rights and freedoms in respect of the processing of your personal data are adequately and appropriately protected. For this purpose, we utilize the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission that you can find here.

What are Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Data?

We have done our best below to explain what your rights are under GDPR and how you can exercise them. If, despite of our below explanations, you are still unsure about the actions you can take or the conditions of exercise of your rights, you can contact us and we will provide you with all the assistance you need when exercising your rights. You may also contact us, at any time, before exercising any of your rights, and we will reply to your request as quickly as possible.

We will provide you with information on actions taken within one month of the day of receipt of your request. Only in exceptional circumstances, when we face complex and a high number of requests, we may extend this period of response up to two further months.

Please note that rights may be exercised free of charge. However, unfounded or excessive requests, in particular because of their repetitive character, will lead to the payment of a fee. Please also understand that, because your privacy is so important for us, we may ask you to provide additional information before executing your request.

Data access and data portability

You have the right to access the personal data that we hold about you by requesting a copy of your personal data, free of charge, sending us an email to

If we consider that your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive (e.g., due to multiple requests in a short period), we may refuse to act or charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs for providing you with the information.

When the erasure process starts, you will not be able to log into your account.

Please note that even if you request the erasure of your personal information, we will retain some of it for as long as we consider it necessary for compliance with our legal obligations or other legitimate interests as explained above in Section 5 “How do We Protect And How Long Do We Retain Your Personal Data?”.

Right to object

We process your data for a variety of reasons as explained in Section 3 “Why do We Process Your Personal Data?”.

Applicable law may entitle you to require us not to process your personal data for some specific purposes where such processing is based on legitimate interest. If you object to such processing we will stop processing your personal data for those purposes.

In specific situations, we may have to refuse the execution of your request. This would be the case where we have legitimate grounds to continue such processing or if we have to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that we stop processing your personal data, while we resolve any issues.

This is only possible in the following four cases:

  • Accuracy: If you contest the accuracy of your personal data, processing would be stopped while we verify your claim.
  • Legitimate Interest: If you object to a processing activity based on legitimate interest, you can require the processing operation to be put on hold while we verify your grounds for objecting.
  • Unlawful Processing: You can request the restriction of data processing if you consider your data is being processed unlawfully, but do not wish your data to be immediately erased.
  • Data Storage: We have no further need for the data but you require it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims. Despite your request, we may continue to process your data if we have to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims. We will notify you before lifting a restriction.
  • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

If you consider that our processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR or any other applicable national laws, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (e.g. your local authority or the CNPD).


If you are a California resident, you have the following special rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) in addition to any other rights outlined in this Privacy Policy.

Please note that we do not “sell” your personal data, as that term is defined in CCPA.

Your Right to “Know” and to Request Deletion

You have the right to know the categories and specific pieces of personal data we have collected about you. You have the right to know the categories of sources from which the personal data has been collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal data, and the categories of third parties with whom we share personal data.

You also have the right to request deletion of personal data we’ve collected or maintain. Please note this right is subject to certain exceptions, including without limitation our retaining information as necessary to protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, to comply with our legal obligations, and for other internal purposes.

To exercise these rights, you can contact us as provided in Section 9 “How to Contact Us?”. Please note that any requested disclosures in connection with a request to know will only apply to the 12-month period preceding the request, and you are entitled to request disclosure twice in any 12-month period.

Personal Information Disclosed

You also have the right to know what categories of personal data we’ve disclosed for a business purpose, and the third parties to whom that information was disclosed. In the past 12 months, we’ve disclosed for a business purpose the following categories of information to the following parties: Usage/device information (including, without limitation, your IP address, as the case may be) to our business intelligence and analytics service providers (e.g. Google Analytics).

Your Right to Non-Discrimination

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by CCPA, including but not limited to by denying you services, charging different prices or rates, or providing you with a different level or quality of services. Please note, however, that the exercise of some of your rights (e.g., to delete your data) may render it impossible for us to continue to deliver services to you.

Your Right to Use an Authorized Agent

You have the right to designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf. To designate an authorized agent, please contact us as provided in Section 9 “How to Contact Us?” below. In order to verify you have authorized an agent we may require a signed, written authorization from you.

Do Not Track

Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Because these features are not yet uniform, we do not presently respond to “do not track” signals. We will however treat any “do not sell” or similar signals as opt-out requests under CCPA.


We may occasionally amend this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our services and the way we are handling your personal data or changes in the applicable laws.

If we make any important changes, we will let you know by placing a notice on the relevant site and/or contact you directly, using other methods such as email.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, such changes will be applicable from the time they are published on our site, unless we specify a date of entry into force. Your continued use of our site from that day on will be subject to the new Privacy Policy.
