We collect personal information from you at several different points, including but not limited to the following:
Please DO NOT enter any information about you nor upload any such information within documentation that could be embarrassing or harmful to you or your reputation or any other person in any way, as we cannot be liable for breaches caused by technical failure or malicious intent.

Despite our reasonable efforts to protect your privacy, software errors and cyber-attacks can happen, and unintentional sharing of any information about you could occur due to events beyond our control.
Soffos does not require you to include sensitive information (e.g. racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union memberships, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning sexual orientation). In the event that you provide such sensitive information, even by uploading any document, file or data containing such sensitive information, as listed non-exhaustively above, you acknowledge that you have provided Soffos explicit consent to receive such information.
Some personal data may be collected by a third-party as a service provider or other vendor. If you interact with some third party services, such as social media companies, particularly where you have an account with the third party, they may collect additional information.
We will only collect and process your personal data where we have lawful basis. Our lawful basis includes consent (where you have given it), where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, and for the purposes of our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of our third parties, provided that such interest does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Examples of legitimate interest include but are not limited to: (i) complying with applicable law, (ii) protecting against security or other threats, (iii) administration of our business interests, including improvements and enhancements of our business, and (iv) customer relationship issues.
