The IOTA Group understands that privacy is very important for you, and we do our best to respect it.

That is why your personal data is only used by the IOTA Group; it is never passed on, without your prior consent, to third parties for commercial purposes. At the same time, the IOTA Group wishes to keep you informed about their research, courses and congresses that are likely to interest you. However, if you do not want to receive any messages from us, you can easily let us know at any time through e-mail to the IOTA study manager, Kristien De Ceulaer: We will make sure your choice is respected.
