The User may also provide other data in order to facilitate contact or handle the inquiry. Providing data marked as mandatory is required in order to accept and handle the inquiry, and failure to provide such data results in the inability to handle the inquiry. Providing other data is voluntary.

4.3. The Controller processes personal data of the Users for marketing purposes in connection with targeting contextual advertising to the Users (i.e. advertising that is not tailored to the preferences of the User).
