What does personal data mean?
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. If we are not (or at least not without a disproportionate amount of time and effort) able to relate a direct link to you personally, this information is not personal data.

The section 'How do we collect and process your personal data?' further details on the ways we process your data based on legitimate interests.
