We collect and process your personal data only when absolutely necessary.
We will never sell, rent, distribute, or publicize in any way your personal data.
If you are under 16, you MUST have the consent of your parents before using the services of this site.

Personal information that collects this site and why we collect it
This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Monitoring Website Traffic
Like most sites, we also use Google Analytics (GA) to monitor user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people who use our site to better understand how we find and use our web pages and to see their progress 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.
Contact Forms and email links
If you choose to contact us using a contact form or an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored from this site or will be transferred or processed by any third party data processor as defined below in the section “Our third-party data processors”. Instead, this data will be emailed to us through the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). 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 email is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
If you choose to participate in our e-mail newsletter, the email address you submit will be promoted to MailChimp that provides us with marketing services for our e-mail. MailChimp is a third-party data processor (see “Our third-party data processors” below). The email you submit will not be stored in the database within the site or in any of our company’s internal IT systems.
Your email address will remain in the MailChimp database for as long as we continue to use our e-mail marketing services or until you explicitly request it to be removed from the mailing list. You can do this by using the delete link contained in all the email newsletters we send you.
As long as your email address remains in the MailChimp database, you will receive periodically (approximately once a month) email newsletters from us.
