We use what is referred to as a double opt-in process to make sure that you are indeed the owner of the e-mail address and do wish to receive our newsletter. This process involves sending you an e-mail with a confirmation link after registering for the newsletter; your e-mail address will only be confirmed to receive our newsletter after you have clicked the confirmation link.

MailChimp, a platform provided by the company below, is responsible for sending our newsletter:

Facebook


Conversion measurement using visitor action pixels on Facebook.
Our website uses visitor action pixels from
Facebook Inc.
1601 S. California Ave,
Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
(“Facebook”)

These visitor action pixels allow users to be tracked after clicking a Facebook advertisement linking you to the provider’s website. This system evaluates the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes, and can help optimise future advertising.
The data collected is anonymous to us, and does not give us any possibility of deducing the respective user’s identity. However, the data from Facebook is stored and processed, and linked to your user profile on Facebook to use in advertising according to the Facebook data usage policy (see https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). This makes it possible for Facebook and its partners to show advertisements on Facebook and on other sites, and a cookie can also be saved on your computer for the purpose.
Only users aged over 13 are permitted to give consent to the use of visitor action pixels. If you are younger, please ask your parent or guardian for permission.
If you object to having Facebook linking your visit on our website to your Facebook account, then please log out of your Facebook account.
