Personal Data Protection
We collect and process your personal data only when it is absolutely necessary. We will never sell, rent, distribute, or publicize your personal data in any way. If you are under 16 years old, you MUST have your parents’ consent before using the services of this website.

Personal information that this website collects and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Website visit monitoring
Like most websites, this one also uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people using our website, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website. Although GA records data such as your geographical location, your device, your web browser, and your operating system, none of this information makes you personally identifiable to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not give us access to this. We consider Google to be a third-party data processor who is compliant with European legislation.
Communication forms and email links
If you choose to communicate with us using a contact form or an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored by this website or transferred or processed by any third-party data processors, as defined below in the section “Our third-party data processors”. On the contrary, this data will be sent to us in an email via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by the TLS security protocol (sometimes known as SSL), which means that the email content is encrypted before it is sent over the internet. The email content is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
What is a cookie?
The term “cookie” refers to a small data file consisting exclusively of a series of text information, which the website transfers to the web browser located on your computer’s hard drive, either temporarily for the duration of your visit, or sometimes for longer periods, depending on the type of cookie. Cookies perform various functions (for example, they distinguish you from other visitors to the same website or remember certain things for you, such as your preferences) and are used by most websites to enhance your experience as a user. Each cookie is unique to your browser and contains some anonymous information. A cookie usually contains the name of the field from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value (usually in the form of a randomly generated unique number).
Types of cookies
The basic types of cookies that websites may use are described below
These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your device’s browser only during your visit and are deleted when you close the browser.
These remain in the cookie file of your device’s browser even after the browser is closed, sometimes for a year or more (the exact duration depends on the lifetime of each cookie). Persistent cookies are used when the website administrator may need to know who you are for more than one visit (e.g., to remember your username or your website configuration preferences).
These are cookies installed in your browser and/or on your device’s hard drive by the website you are visiting. This includes assigning a unique identifier code to you in order to monitor your navigation on the site. Website administrators often use first-party cookies for visitor management and identification purposes.
These are cookies used by third parties, such as social networks, to track your visits to various websites where they advertise. The website administrator has no control over these third-party cookies.
