The privacy statement is about how this website collects and uses visitor information. The statement contains information that you are entitled to when collecting information from our website, and general information about how we treat personal data. The legal owner of the website is the processing officer for the processing of personal data.
It is voluntary for those who visit the web sites to provide personal information regarding services such as receiving newsletters and using the sharing and tip services. The treatment basis is the consent of the individual, unless otherwise specified.
1. Web analytics and cookies
Examples of what the statistics give us answers to are; how many people visit different pages, how long the visit lasts, what websites users come from and what browsers are used. None of the cookies allow us to link information about your use of the site to you as an individual. The information collected by Google Analytics is stored on Google servers in the U.S.
If the webpage has search function, it stores information about what keywords users use in Google Analytics. The purpose of the storage is to improve our information service. The search usage pattern is stored in aggregate form. Only the keyword is saved and they can not be linked to other information about the users, such as the IP addresses.
3. Share / Tips service
The “Share with others” feature can be used to forward links to the site by email, or to share the content of social networking. Tips for tips are not logged with us, but only used to add the tips to the community. However, we can not guarantee that the online community does not log this information. All such services should therefore be used wisely. If you use the email feature, we only use the provided email addresses to resend the message without any form of storage.
AquaGen distributes a newsletter by email. The recipients email address is stored in a separate database and is deleted when you cancel your subscription. The email address is also deleted when we receive feedback that it is no longer active (hard bounce).
AquaGen uses Mailchimp to administer and publish newsletters, in cooperation with Celero AS as data processor. AquaGen has signed a data processing agreement with Celero AS.
AquaGen and the data processor can gain access to the following information about activity in the newsletter:
– opening of emails (by loading of images)
– clicks in the email
– geographical location of email server
– email client
– shares in social media
AquaGen can use this information to follow up interest the recipient has shown for specific products or events. The information is not shared with third parties.
5. Registration form
The website may have a form for registration, contact form or other form. These forms are available to the public to perform the tasks they are supposed to do. Registration form is for visitors to sign up or register. Contact form is for visitors to easily send a message to the website’s contact person. We ask for the name of the sender and contact information for this. Personal information we receive is not used for purposes other than responding to the inquiry.
The form is sent as email via Mailgun as a third party solution. The entire submission will be stored at Mailgun for 24 hours. Between 24 hours and 30 days, only mailheader is stored before the submission is deleted after 30 days.
The reason for this storage is to confirm whether emails are sent from the website and forwarded to the correct recipient. Once the email is received by the recipient, it is up to the recipient to determine the data processing needs of the email.
