1. Privacy and data protection

Data is an obligation, must be collected and processed only when absolutely necessary.

2. Relevant legislation

This site is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation on data protection and privacy of users.

3. Personal information that collects this site and why we collect them

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

3.1 Tracking Website Traffic

Like most sites, it also uses Google Analytics (GA) to monitor user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people who use our site, to understand better how they find and use our web pages and to see their progress on the site.

Although GA records data such as your geographic location, your device, your web browser, and your operating system, none of this information makes you personally familiar to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not provide access to it. We believe Google is a third data processor.

GA uses cookies, details of which you can find in Google’s developer guides. For your information, our site uses GA’s analytics.js application.

Disabling cookies on your browser will prevent GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this site.

3.2 Forms of communication and e-mail links.

In the event that you choose to contact us using the contact form or e-mail link, none of the data you provide will be stored by this site or will be transferred or processed by any third party data processor as defined in section 6.0. Instead, this data will be emailed to us through the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (sometimes known as SSL), meaning that email is encrypted using 256-bit SHA-2 encryption before being sent over the Internet. The content of the email is decrypted by our local computers and devices.

4. How we store your personal information

As described in detail in section 3 above, some personal information will be stored in the data base of this site. This data is stored in pseudonymous form, that means the data requires additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it can be used to identify a person.

Pseudonymization is a requirement of GDPR and we have implemented it on this site.

5. About the server of this site

All web traffic (file transfer) between this site and your browser is encrypted and transferred through the HTTPS protocol.

6. Our third-party data processors

We use a number of third parties to process personal data for us. This organization has been carefully selected and complies with the legislation set out in section 2. This organization is based in the US and is in accordance with the EU-U Privacy Shield.

Google (Privacy Policy)

7. Violations of data

We will report any unlawful violation of the data base of this third party data processing site or data base to anyone and to all relevant interested as well as authorities within 72 hours of the violation if it is obvious that the personal data that is stored in recognizable form, have been stolen.

8. Changes to our privacy policy

This privacy policy may change from time to time according to legislation or industry developments. We will not explicitly notify our customers or users of our site about these changes. Instead, we encourage you to occasionally review this page for any policy changes.
