“Sensitive Personal Data” means Personal Data that reveal a living person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade-union membership; data concerning health or sex life and sexual orientation; and genetic data or biometric data.

Everstrong may collect Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data for purposes including, but not limited to, verifying investors’ identities, verifying employees’ identities and maintaining its operations as a business. Everstrong would collect Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data on bases including, but not limited to, the performance of contracts, compliance with legal obligations and the pursuit of legitimate interests.
