You can choose not to provide us with certain information, for example, you can choose to use our website without creating an account. However, this may restrict our ability to provide you with our services or access to certain features on our websites.
We also collect information from you automatically. Please see “Information collected automatically – Cookies etc.” below for more information about how we collect your information in this way.
