Third-Party Use of Personal Information

We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorise us to share your information.

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):

MailChimp 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 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. In addition, subscribers may be informed as necessary in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances.

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.

You can revoke the consent to the storage of personal data and terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link present in the footer of every email newsletter or promotional email we send you. When you subscribe via one of the subscription forms on this Website, you acknowledge that the information you provide will be transferred to Mailchimp for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy. Mailchimp is headquartered in the State of Georgia in the United States.

WooCommerce is used as our e-commerce platform to process orders for and deliver goods and services. When you place an order, personal data is collected for the purpose of calculating tax and processing invoices as required by law. We collect, as appropriate, personal data such as your name, email address, billing address, company name, VAT number, PayPal email, credit card number so we can process the invoice and calculate the correct VAT amount to be applied. We collect payment information for each order but we do not store payment information on our servers. Your payment information is securely communicated to and processed via our digital download service and payment gateways in accordance with their privacy policies (WooCommerce, PayPal) and terms of use.

As required by EU law, VAT is charged at the consumer’s location. Due to EU regulations, we have to store two matching pieces of evidence that demonstrate the buyer to be at this location (and therefore the right amount of tax was charged). To do this, we record the country you select when checking out, the country of your bank, and the country your IP resolves to. All personal information collected for an order is used for the fulfilment of that order and to manage our customer relationship with you. You have the right to be forgotten and ask for your order details to be deleted from the WooCommerce database although copies of invoices paid to us are retained for financial/legal reasons. The operating company of WooCommerce is 60 29th Street #343 San Francisco, CA 94110.
