Particular and/or sensitive personal data that we process

Our intention is not to collect information about visitors younger than 18 years of age,  unless they have received permission from their parents or legal guardian. However, we cannot verify whether or not a visitor is younger than 18 years old. Therefore, we advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, in order to prevent data on their children being collected without parental/legal guardian consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal data about minors without consent, please contact us so we may remove this data.
