AIMPLAS hereby informs all users of the non-compulsory nature of providing certain personal data, except in fields where the contrary is indicated. Nevertheless, failure to supply these data may prevent AIMPLAS from providing all the services associated with said data, thereby releasing AIMPLAS from any and all liability for failure to provide all or part of said services.
