3. Special and/or sensitive personal data

Our website and/or service does not intend to collect data about website visitors who are under 16 years of age and/or to collect special personal data. Unless they have parental or guardian consent. However, we cannot verify whether a visitor is older than 16. We therefore advise parents to be involved in their children’s online activities, in order to avoid collecting data on children without parental consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal data about a minor without such consent, please contact us at and we will delete this information.
