The IMO collects personal information of compulsory and optional nature, using as a means the application form for marking and contact request and spontaneous application accessible through the website, within the scope of legitimate interests and pre-contractual procedures.

Due to the need to comply with the service contract and compliance with legal commitments, there are several circumstances in which a user’s personal data is requested for IMO treatment, and IMO cannot confirm the performance of the pre-contractual service if the user chooses to deny the required data.

In such cases, the data transfer is made in accordance with the requirements of the General Regulation Data Protection.
