How do we protect the data?
The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer you our services. Your data can be stored via our hosting provider's data storage, databases and general applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall and they provide secure HTTPS access to most areas of their services.
Notwithstanding the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and do not guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, publish or otherwise disclose to us or others.
For this reason, we encourage you to set strong passwords and, whenever possible, not to provide us or others with confidential information that you believe could cause you significant or lasting harm if disclosed. As email and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we also ask that you do not disclose confidential information via either of these communication channels.

In the event that we become aware that a minor is using our Services, we may prohibit and block such users from accessing our Services and we may delete any information we hold about that user. If you have reason to believe that a minor has disclosed data to us, please contact us as explained below.
the use of your personal data is necessary to perform or enter into a contract (for example, to provide you with the Services themselves or customer or technical support);
