Personal information this site collects and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following purposes:
Website traffic monitoring
Like most websites, this one 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 websites, and to see their journey through the site. Although GA records data such as your geographic location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information makes you personally known to us. GA also records your computer's IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not provide us with access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data controller which is compliant with the requirements of European law.
Contact forms and email links
Should 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 by an email message via the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) security protocol, which means that email content is encrypted before it is sent over the internet. Email content is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
About the server of this website
All web traffic (file transfer) between this website and your browser is encrypted and transferred via the HTTPS protocol using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
Our third party data processors
We use a number of third parties to process personal data for us. These operators have been carefully selected to comply with the legislation referred to in this document.
For any personal information stored in our database, all necessary measures will be taken to safeguard it.
We will report any unlawful breach of the database of this website or the database of any third party data processor to any and all parties directly concerned as well as to the authorities within 72 hours of the breach, if it is obvious that personal data stored in an identifiable form has been stolen.
