MemKey can collect personal data from their users in several ways: (i) automatically with its own tools or with third-party tools, and (ii) manually with every contact the user does through web, email, social media, apps or any other way to interact with the MemKey team.

We collect and process these variables to try to supply a better service to all our users and visitors, as well as to generate service stats. The access to this data is strictly restricted and its writing and movement are encrypted with standard encryption methods.
