The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a website visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site.

In order to use some AlpineSoils.eu’s functionalities (e.g., soil consultancy service), a user must first complete the registration form. During registration, a user is required to give basic information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the question or responses you may have.
