If your personal information is protected by EU data protection law, Ritech’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which Ritech collects it.

In some cases, Ritech may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
