For the pursuit of the purposes set forth in Article 3 letter a), the provision of Personal Data is optional; however, since the processing of Personal Data is necessary in order to access and use the services offered by the Platform, failure to provide Personal Data will make it impossible for the User to access and/or navigate the Platform and/or register and use the services reserved for Users.
