What personally identifiable information do we collect, and who is collecting it?
How do we use the information we get?
Beneq collects information in order to provide our users with personalized and customized service. We may also use the information to estimate our audience size and measure traffic patterns. We will often use the information we collect to notify you of important functionality changes to Beneq, new services, and special offers or contests that we think you’ll find valuable. If you would rather not receive such information, please contact us at info [at] beneq [dot] com.
