We take the security and privacy of your data seriously and intend to comply with our legal obligations under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) as a data controller. We collect certain personal information based upon and as a result of the use of our Site by visitors and subscribers (referred to herein as “you” or “your”).

Information That We Collect

When you subscribe to our Newsletters and E-Mails, you disclose and we collect certain personal information from you, such as your name, email address, Company, mailing address, telephone number, username, password, log-in information (such as domain, IP address, device type, browser, language and platform) and other information described in this Privacy Policy (“Personal Information”). We also collect information from you when you contact us with a question or comment. We also automatically collect anonymous tracking information about you to gauge response to our communication efforts and the popularity of specific areas of our Site.

Our Site uses cookies, which are small files placed on your computer’s hard drive by an Internet server when you visit a website. We use the following types of cookies on the Site:

(1) "Google Analytics" cookies (a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc). Google Analytics sets four cookies that allow us to analyse traffic on the website. Google Analytics cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to this website and to see how visitors move around the site (in particular, what pages of the website are being visited). This helps us to improve the way our website works.

(2) For statistical purposes, we use Matomo, which is an open source web analysis tool that analyzes how the Site is used. Matomo does not transfer any data to any third party servers without our consent. The information provided by the cookie is transferred to our server and saved there, to enable us to analyze user behaviour. Your IP address will be immediately anonymised; users are thus anonymous. The information generated by the cookie regarding how you use the website will not be passed on to third parties.

(3) Display and preference settings cookies are placed on your computer for user optimization. For example, if you changed the size of the text on our website when you last visited, a cookie will remember that so that you don't need to do it again.

(4) "Session cookies" are placed on your computer to identify and maintain a browsing session, and to remember whether you have rejected cookies through your browser settings.

(5) Cookies that track whether a social networking option has been used to forward material from the Site are also placed on your computer so that we know which social networking tools have been used.

These cookies do not collect or track any personal data or information about you as an individual. Instead, they are focused on how the website is used, and seek to enhance the accessibility of the website. If you do not want to accept cookies from our Site, you may configure your web browser so that it does not accept cookies; however, certain functions available on the website may be lost. These cookies do not collect or track any Personal Information.

This Cookies Statement places all users of this website on notice about our use of cookies. Your continued use of this website confirms to us that you are aware of our use of cookies and have no objection to this.
