Purposes of the processing, legal basis and storage periods

We process your personal data for a specific purpose and we only process such data as is relevant to fulfil that purpose. In this regard, we inform you that the personal data you provide or that we collect through this Website may be processed for the following purposes as appropriate:


(i) To respond to your queries: To deal with requests for information and/or queries that you make through the various contact channels that we make available to you.
