3.1 Google Analytics
When using Google Analytics, our website uses the extension “anonymizeIp”. This shortens your IP address from Google and thus anonymizes it before it is passed on from EU/EEA member states. Google uses this data to analyze your use of our website, compile reports on internet activity for us and provide other services relating to our website. We use Google Analytics only on our public website, not on our dashboard after login.
Google Analytics also uses electronic graphics known as tracking pixels (web beacons, sometimes called single-pixel images), which are used alongside cookies to compile aggregate statistics to analyze the use of our website.
For more information on how to install the above-mentioned browser add-on, please visit this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
We use a service called Mailchimp to send transactional inquiry emails or to manage subscriber lists for email marketing and to send monthly newsletters to our subscribers. Mailchimp is an online marketing platform operated by The Rocket Science Group LLC, a company headquartered in the state of Georgia in the USA.
Mailchimp automatically places tracking pixels (single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons) in every email sent to our users. These are tiny graphics that contain unique markers/identifiers that allow us and our users to recognize when an addressee has opened an email or clicked on certain links. These technologies capture the email address, IP address, and date and time associated with each addressee that opens and clicks for a campaign. We use this data to generate reports for us on how an email campaign is performing and what actions the addressees have taken.
Each newsletter includes a link at the bottom for quick and easy unsubscribing; this allows users to opt out at any time.
Your email address will remain in Mailchimp’s database as long as we continue to use their services for email marketing or until you request to be removed from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing via the unsubscribe links provided in each newsletter email we send to you, or by requesting deletion via email. If you wish to request deletion via email, please contact us using the email account registered on the mailing list.
As long as your email address is in the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic (approximately monthly) newsletter-style emails from us.
