For example, I may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature.

Where I need to collect your personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract I have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, I may not be able to perform the contract I have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with artworks or related services).
