We collect and process your personal data only when it is absolutely necessary.
We will never sell, rent, distribute, or publicize in any way your personal data.
If you are under 16, you MUST have your parents’ consent before using the services of this site.
Along with our company’s internal IT systems, this site is designed to comply with the following laws/regulations regarding the protection of user’s personal data:

- Regulation on general EU data protection (GDPR of year 2018)
Personal information collected by this site and why we collect it
This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Website traffic monitoring
Like most sites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of our site visitors to better understand how they find and use our web pages. Although GA records data such as your geographic location, your device, your web browser, and your operating system, none of this information identify you 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 that Google is a third data processor that is compliant with the requirements of European legislation.
Contact forms and e-mail links
If you choose to contact us using a contact form or an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored to our site or transferred or processed by any third party data processor as defined below in the section «Our third-party data processors». Instead, these data will be sent to us via an SMTP protocol (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (also known as SSL), meaning that email content is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. The content of the email is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
If you choose to subscribe in our newsletter, the email address you submit will be forwarded to Mail Chimp which manages our e-mail marketing services. Mail Chimp is a third-party data processor (see «Our third-party data processors» below). Your e-mail address will not be stored in any of our databases. Your e-mail address will remain in the Mail Chimp database for as long as we continue to use our e-mail marketing services or until you explicitly request to be removed from the mailing list. You can do, using the delete link contained in all the email newsletters we send you.
As long as your e-mail address remains in the Mail Chimp database, you will receive periodic (approximately once a month) e-mail newsletters from us.
