Personal information this website collects and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Monitoring visits to websites
Like most websites, this website uses Google Analytics (GA) to monitor users’ activity. We use these data to identify how many persons use our website, to better understand the way they find and use our web pages and to see their path through the website. Although GA records data such as your geographical location, your device, your browser and your operation system, none of this information reveals your personal identity to us. GA also records your computer’s IP which could be used to identify you, but Google does not give us access to this. We believe that Google is a third-party data processor compliant with the requirements of the European legislation.
Contact forms and e-mail links
If you choose to contact us through a contact form or our e-mail link, none of the data you provide will be stored in this website or transferred or submitted to processing by any third-party data processor, as defined in section “Our third-party data processors” below. On the contrary, these data will be sent to us by e-mail through SMTP protocol (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS security protocol (also known as SSL), which means that the e-mail content is encrypted before sent through the Internet. The e-mail content is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
If you choose to receive our e-mail newsletters, the e-mail address you submitted will be forwarded to MailChimp that provides marketing services for our e-mails. MailChimp is a third-party data processor (see section “Our third-party data processors” below”). The e-mail address you submitted will not be stored in our website’s database or in any of our company’s internal information systems. Your e-mail address will remain in MailChimp’s database for as long as we use their marketing services for our e-mail or until you expressly request that it is deleted from this list. You can do this by using the unsubscribe link included in all e-mail newsletters we send you. For as long as your e-mail address is included in MailChimp’s database, you will periodically (around once a month) receive information e-mails from us.
