Specific Services and Data Collection

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to understand how our website is being used in order to improve the user experience. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Website, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Website and services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our Website, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information.

Google reCAPTCHA

To protect our website from spam and abuse, we implement Google reCAPTCHA, which checks whether data entered on our Website is entered by a human or by an automated program. reCAPTCHA analyses various information (e.g., IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.


We utilise Cloudflare for website security and performance enhancement. Cloudflare may place a cookie on your device to provide its services. Cloudflare's use of information collected through its cookies is governed by Cloudflare's Privacy Policy. Cloudflare may also collect certain information about your visit to our Website, including IP addresses, in order to provide its services.


We use Mailster for managing our newsletter and email subscribers. When you subscribe to our newsletter, Mailster collects your email address and any other information you provide to us when subscribing. We use this information to send you newsletters and communications you have expressly requested.


Wordfence is used for securing our Website against malicious attacks. Wordfence may collect information about your visit, such as IP addresses and browsing behaviour, to identify and prevent unauthorised access or cyber threats.

Web Forms

Our Website includes web forms (e.g., contact us, feedback) that you can use to get in touch with us. Through these forms, we collect the personal information you provide, such as your name, email address, and message content, to respond to your inquiries or feedback.

Cloudflare Turnstile

Cloudflare Turnstile is used as a privacy-friendly security measure to ensure that interactions on our Website are genuine without disrupting user experience through CAPTCHA challenges. It operates in the background to analyse traffic behaviour and may collect certain identifiers to distinguish between human users and bots.

4. Your Rights Under GDPR

Under GDPR, you have the right to access, rectify, erase, restrict processing of, and object to processing of your personal data. You also have the right to data portability. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at [email protected].

However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website.

6. Changes to Our Privacy Policy

It is our policy to post any changes we make to our privacy policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users' personal information, we will notify you through a notice on the Website home page.
