Privacy Note

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

We collect your personal information automatically submitted by your web browser (IP address, browser version, referring pages etc.), which will be stored on our server logs for no longer than two months. Aggregated and anonymised data will be stored long term in our server statistics. Our server is based in Strasbourg, France.

We use technology to detect whether you have ad blocking software installed, so that we can optimise your user experience. However, we don’t store the result of the detection.

We collect your personal information whenever you submit it to us through email, contact form, or forum registration (such as name, email address). We will only use it to contact you if you specifically indicate that you wish to be contacted, to confirm that we’ve received your message, or — if you explicitly confirm through double opt-in — subscribe you to forum messages. Any messages that you send to us, or that we send to you, we might retain indefinitely. We will never use your personal information for marketing, or sell it to any third party. We may reveal your personal information to others when required by law (such as to assist a criminal investigation), or by our advertising partners (such as to verify our compliance with their respective agreements).

Third parties may be placing and reading cookies on your browser, or using web beacons to collect information, in the course of ads or “Like” buttons being served on our website.

Google Analytics

We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, 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. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.
