2. Relevant legislation
Along with our business and internal IT systems, 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 it
This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Tracking Website Traffic
Like most sites, he also uses Google Analytics (GA) to monitor user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people who use our site to better understand how we 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.
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
If you choose to contact us using the “Contact Us” contact form or an email link like this, none of the data you provide will be saved from 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. Additionally, our e-mail platform is hosted by Microsoft using Office 365, which is fully compatible with GDPR.
4. How we store your personal information
As described in detail in Section 3 above, some personal information will be stored in the database of this site. This data is stored in a pseudonymous way, ie the data requires additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it can be used to identify a person.
Pseudonymization is a GDPR requirement that we have implemented 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. These two entities have been carefully selected and all comply with the legislation set out in Section 2. Both of these entities are based in the US and are in accordance with the EU-U Privacy Shield.
7. Infringements of data
We will report any unlawful violation of the database of this third party data processing site or database to anyone and to all relevant stakeholders 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.
