2. Data collected
This website utilizes Google Analytics (GA) to monitor user interaction, like most websites. We use this information to determine the amount of individuals using our website, to better understand how our website finds and uses them, and to see how they travel through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographic place, computer, web browser, and operating system, you are not personally identified by any of this information. GA also registers the IP address of your computer that could be used to define you personally, but Google does not give us access to it. We regard Google as a data processor for third parties (see section 6.0 below).
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
If you choose to contact us on our Contact Us page using an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored on this website or transferred to or processed by any of the data processors of third parties defined in section 6.0. The information will instead be collected in an email and sent to us through the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). TLS (sometimes referred to as SSL) protects our SMTP servers, meaning that email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before it is sent over the internet. Our local machines and devices then decrypt the content of the email.
