3. How We Use Your Personal Information

The Personal Information we collect allows us to:

You are not required to provide the Personal Information that we have requested, but if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have. If you do not wish to receive further communications from us, you can opt out at any time by unsubscribing at the bottom of the email from Promethean or sending an email to privacy@prometheanworld.com including your name, email address, and a brief explanation of the purpose of your email.

Promethean also collects data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual user.
