We collect and process your personal data only when it is absolutely necessary.
We will never sell, rent, distribute, or disclose your personal information in any way.
If you are under 16 years, you MUST have your legal guardian’s consent before using the services on this site.
In addition to our company’s internal information systems, this website is designed to comply with the following laws / regulations regarding the protection of users’ personal data:

Personal information collected by this site and why we collect it
This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Site Traffic Monitoring
Like most websites, our website 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 discover and use our web pages and to see their actions within the site. Although GA records data such as your geographical location, your device, your web browser and your 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 trust that Google is a third party, data processing entity, that complies with the regulations of the European law.
Contact forms and email links
If you choose to contact us using our contact form or some 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 the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (sometimes known as SSL), which means that e-mail content is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. The contents of the e-mail are decrypted by our local computers and devices.
What is a cookie?

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 from, the “lifespan” of the cookie as well as a value (usually in the form of a randomly generated unique number).
