A. We collect the basic information from you when signing up for our newsletter. This information includes your name and your e-mail address. We also record your e-mail address and any other information provided to your email provider (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, etc.) when you contact us. Along with these, we also keep notes or details explaining what you asked for and how we responded when you contacted us.
B. This website collects and processes personal information for the following reasons:
Tracking Website Traffic Like most sites, this also 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 find and use our webpage and to see their course 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 that Google is a third data processor that is compliant with the requirements of European legislation.
Forms of communication and e-mail links If you choose to contact us using a contact form or an e-mail link, none of the data you provide will be stored from this site or transferred or processed by any third party as described below in the section “Our third-party data processors”. Instead, these data will be sent to you via an SMTP protocol (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (sometimes known as SSL), meaning that email content is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. The content of the e-mail is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
