Personal Data and Protection
We collect and process your personal data only when absolutely necessary.
We will never sell, rent, distribute, or disclose your personal information in any way.
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 that this site collects and why we collect it
This site collects and has personal information for the following reasons:
Monitor website traffic
Like most websites, we use 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 our web pages and to see their progress within our website. 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 consider Google as a third party data processing entity that complies with the requirements of the law.
Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using our contact form or via our email address link, none of the data you provide will be stored on this site or transferred or processed by the third party data provider as defined in the “Our third-party data processors” section. Instead, this data will be sent by email via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (sometimes known as SSL), which means that email content is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. The contents of the email are decrypted by our local computers and devices.
