Privacy

We collect and process your personal data only when necessary. We will never sell, rent, distribute, or disclose your personal information in any way. If you are under 16 years of age, you MUST have your parent's consent before using the services on this site.

Relevant legislation

In addition to our company's internal information systems, this website has been designed to comply with the following laws/regulations regarding the protection of users' personal data:

  1. EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
  2. EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018

Personal information collected by this site and why we collect it

This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:

Website traffic monitoring Like most websites,

it uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people who use our site to better understand how they find and use our web pages and see how they navigate the site. Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, web browser, and operating system, none of this information is made personally known to us. GA also records your computer's IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not give us access to it. We believe that Google is a third party data processing entity that complies with the European law requirements.

Contact forms and email links

If you choose to contact us using a contact form or an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored on this website or transferred or processed by any third party data processing provider as defined below in the section "Our third-party data processors". Instead, this data will be emailed to us via SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (sometimes known as SSL), which means that the e-mail content is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. Our local computers and devices decrypt the email content.

Electronic newsletter

If you choose to subscribe to our electronic newsletter, the email address you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp, which provides us with our email marketing services. MailChimp is a third party data processor (see "Our Third-Party Data Processors" below). The email address you submit will not be stored in the website database or any of the company's internal computer systems. Your email address will remain in the MailChimp database for as long as we continue to use its email marketing services or until you explicitly request its removal from the list. You can do this by using the unsubscribe link contained in all the electronic newsletters we send you. As long as your email address remains in the MailChimp database, you will be receiving periodic (approximately once a month) email updates from us.

What is a cookie?

The term "cookie" refers to a small data file consisting exclusively of a set of textual information that the website transfers to the web browser on your computer's hard drive, or temporarily throughout your visit, or sometimes for longer periods, depending on the type of cookie. Cookies perform various functions (for example, distinguishing you from other visitors to the same website or remembering certain things about you, such as your preferences). Most websites use them to improve user experience.

Each cookie is unique to your browser and contains some anonymous information. A cookie usually contains the name of the field from which the cookie came, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value (usually in the form of a randomly generated unique number).

Types of cookies

The basic types of cookies that websites may use are described below:

  • Persistent cookies are used when the webmaster may need to know who you are for more than one visit (e.g., remember your username or website customization preferences).
  • First-party cookies: These are cookies installed in the browser and/or your hard drive by the website you are visiting. This includes assigning you a unique identifier to track your site navigation. Web admins often use first-party cookies to manage visits and for identification purposes.
