2.2. What Personal Data do we process?

Binogi is built on a data minimization principle. The default level of operation is pseudonymized accounts, i.e. no personal information is retained by Binogi’s systems. In the event of such data being received, for example the user email address during Single-Sign On, these are stripped and the account is represented by a non-identifiable account number (pseudonymization).
