Boardera will not collect any personal information about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, or a design, plan, specification, model for a manufacturable item), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by registering an account), provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations for the protection of your personal information.
