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 finally, 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.
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.
