interpanel Commitment to Data Privacy Protection
Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to interpanel. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data may be collected, how that data may be used and safeguarded, and with whom the personal data may be shared.
Through our internet sites, interpanel will not directly collect any personal data about you (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide it (such as by registration, survey or order placement), or unless otherwise required by applicable laws and regulations. From time to time, we may collect personal data about you indirectly from sources other than through our own internet sites. The personal data that we collect from various sources may be combined.
Data Collected Automatically
When you access our internet sites or use our mobile applications, we may automatically (that is, not by registration) collect additional data (such as type of Internet browser, IP address, and operating system used, domain name of the internet site which directed you to our site, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, information on your interaction with the site).

- for any additional purpose that is directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to host or support our Internet sites, applications, or the services to which they relate. These third parties may have access to your personal data to perform such tasks. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to other third parties, except as described.
To the extent required to help us fulfill your orders or requests, we may share personal data with others, such as our business partners, postal/logistics companies, or customs agents/authorities.
