THIRD-PARTY USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.
The Website currently uses the following third-party service providers (processors):
MailerLite is used to process and store data relating to, and deliver email updates, newsletters and promotions. We store your name and email address for purpose of delivery. We also store the date and time of registration, and the IP address used. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the email address at a later date, and therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller. The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter and promotional emails will only be used to send our newsletter and promotional emails. In addition, subscribers may be informed as necessary in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances.
All newsletters sent may contain embedded tracking pixels. These allow a statistical 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. These data will not be passed on to third parties.
We will not sell, transfer or disclose the personal data collected by the newsletter service to any other companies or third parties. However, you might receive third party information and offers related, but not limited, to affiliate partner products and services, through our newsletter and promotional emails.
Google Analytics (with IP anonymisation) tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. The purpose of the Google Analytics is to anonymously analyse the traffic on our Website and help us improve our content and services and ultimately, serve you better. Google Analytics participates in the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework. The operator of the Google Analytics is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
At this time, your personal information is not shared with any other third-party applications. This list may be amended from time to time in the Website’s sole discretion. Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal data without your consent. However, we may release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
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.
