THIRD-PARTY USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

The Website currently uses the following third-party service providers:
Google Analytics – this service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics. We have an automatic deletion of all IP address via their tool. When data reaches the end of the retention period (26 months), it is deleted automatically on a monthly basis.
MailChimp – this service is used for delivery of email updates and newsletters. We store your name and email address for purposes of delivering such communications. We do not share or rent any of our subscribers information. You can edit your information or delete your subscription through the MailChimp links at the bottom of the email.
Embedded content from other websites
This site may include embedded content (e.g. VIDEOS). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
From time to time, we may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties. This type of anonymous data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Examples of this anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies.
On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for announcement of events and advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
