Personal information collected by this website and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Track website traffic
Like most websites, he uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people who use our website, to better understand how they find and use our websites, and to see how they are going through the site. Although GA records data such as your location, device, web browser and operating system, none of this information makes you personally known to us. GA also records the IP address of your computer, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not give us access to it. We consider Google to be a third-party data processor that is compatible with the requirements of European law.
Contact forms and email links
In the event that you choose to contact us using a contact form or an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored by this website or transferred or processed by any third party data processor, as defined below in the section "Our third-party data processors". Instead, this data will be sent to us in an e-mail message via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by tls security protocol (sometimes also known as SSL), which means that email content is encrypted before it is sent over the internet. The content of the email is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
If you choose to participate in our e-mail newsletter, the email address you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp which provides us with marketing services for our e-mail. MailChimp is a third-party data processor (see "Our third-party data processors" section below). The email address you submit will not be stored in the database within the website or in any of our internal IT systems. Your email address will remain in the MailChimp database as long as we continue to use its services for the marketing of our email or until you explicitly request its removal from the list. You can do this by using the delete link contained in all the e-mail newsletters we send you. As long as your email address remains in the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic (approximately once a month) informational emails from us.
