Introduction

We ensure that your privacy is protected when you use our services. The following privacy policy explains how your personal information is processed and kept safe. Any changes to this policy can be viewed on our website at any time.

The purpose of this data is to guarantee the smooth operation of our website and to improve our services. It is not possible to associate this data to a specific person. 

 

Hosting Services through Third-Party Providers

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse website usage. The information created through cookies, which details your use of this website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA where it is stored.
