We collect different types of information from or through the Site. The legal bases for RealWorld EDC’s processing of personal data are primarily that the processing is necessary for providing contact and information, and that the processing is carried out in RealWorld EDC’s legitimate interests, which are further explained in the section “How We Use the Information We Collect” of this Policy. We may also process data upon your consent, asking for it as appropriate.

If we combine or associate information from other sources with Personal Data that we collect through the website, we will treat the combined information as Personal Data in accordance with this Policy.

We use the information that we collect in a variety of ways in operating our business, including the following:
We use the information to provide the services and information that you request, and to respond to comments and questions.
We use the information to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our website visitor.
We may use a visitor email address or other information to contact you (i) for administrative purposes such as customer service or (ii) with updates on promotions and events, relating to products and services offered by us and by third parties we work with.

We take measures to protect the technical information collected by our use of Google Analytics.

4.2 Service Providers
We work with third-party service providers who provide website, hosting, maintenance, and other services for us. These third parties may have access to, or process Personal Data as part of providing those services for us. We limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and our contracts with them require them to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
4.3 Law Enforcement, Legal Process and Compliance
We may disclose Personal Data or other information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with applicable laws, in response to a facially valid court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.
