SKIDATA websites do not record users' personal data (e.g. names, addresses, telephone numbers of email addresses), unless users voluntarily provide such data (e.g. by registering or sending a query), or otherwise agree to provide such data, or if the applicable data protection statutes permit such collection. If SKIDATA web sites provide the option to enter personal data, such user data will be used for the purposes described below.
