This website collects non-personal information of the kind that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
This website also collects potentially person-specific information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
The data is not used to identify the visitors (we anonymize it) and it is not disclosed to third parties Excepted from this area the circumstances described below.
Collection of personal information
Certain visitors to this website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personal information.
The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction.
For example, we ask visitors who use our contact forms to provide their first/last name and email address.
In each case, we collect such information only as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us.
We do not disclose personal information other than as described below.
In addition, visitors can always refuse to supply personal information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Personal Information
We will not rent or sell potentially person-specific or personal information to third parties.
If you are a registered user of a newsletter and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to inform you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with our products and services.
We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially person-specific or personal information.
We may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to our websites.
For instance, we may reveal how many views a particular page or post received.
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.
Types of cookies
Technical cookies are cookies necessary for website navigation or to provide the services offered by the website.
They are not used for any other purposes.
Profiling cookies are cookies used to track user navigation and create a profile of their habits which can then be used to send advertising messages to the user’s device.
First party cookies
These cookies are set directly by the website that you are visiting and can only be accessed by that site.
Third party cookies
Third-party cookies are set by a different organisation than the owner of the website you are visiting.
For example, the website might use a third-party analytics company who will set their own cookie to provide this service.
The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Facebook, and these sites may set their own cookies.
In any case, we have configured the “optimized privacy” mode so that this embedded content does not store information about visitors to our website, unless they voluntarily interact with this embedded content after loading the page.
Cookies used by this website
First party cookies
This website uses several Content Management System components and the Matomo (Piwik) analytics tool which use first-party technical cookies.
Like many websites we collect analytic data to help improve the services offered to users.
We use Matomo (Piwik) – http://matomo.org (an open source alternative to Google Analytics) which has the advantage that any data collected is stored on servers owned by us and not transferred to third parties.
In March 2011, the Independent Center for Privacy Protection in Germany (ULD) recommended Matomo (Piwik) as privacy-compliant web analytics software.
In January 2014, the Center for Data Privacy Protection in France (CNIL) recommended Matomo (Piwik) as the only tool that can easily ensure full compliance with privacy regulations.
Matomo (Piwik) privacy compliance is also reflected by the many government agencies who already trust and rely on Matomo (in Europe, Asia, North America, Africa) for providing self-hosted web analytics.
The security features in Matomo (Piwik) which permit compliance with the above privacy protection laws are:
- AnonymizeIP plugin, which removes the rightmost numbers in visitor IP addresses
- Visitor Opt Out widget, which provides an automatic “Web Analytics tracking & cookies Optout” feature on the website
- Possibility to delete your Matomo (Piwik) logs and ensure limited time access to visitor level logs (180days)
