This privacy policy ("Policy") describes how we ("Ionut Lucian Pestritu, Sole Proprietor", "we", "us" or "our") may collect, protect and use both personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information you ("User", "you" or "your") may provide on the website and any of its products or services (collectively, "Website", "Service" or "Services"). It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your Personal Information and how you can access and update it. This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.

For the purpose of data protection laws and in relation to the Personal Information collected and processed through the Website, we act as "data controller". For more details about us, see Section [14. Our details].

1. What types of data we collect

1.1 Personal data

You can visit the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any information by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. If, however, you wish to use some of the Website's features, you will be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information, which may include, but is not limited to:

  • Email address
  • Your name

If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you such as your name, email address, phone number, the contents of the message and/or attachments you may send us, and any other information you may choose to provide.

1.2 Usage data

Usage data is collected automatically when using the Website and recorded on our servers or the servers of the third-party service providers listed in Section [9. Third-party services and technologies].

Usage data includes information that your browser sends, such as, but not limited to: your device's Internet Protocol address (IP address), browser type and version, operating system type and version, language preferences, the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Website, pages of our Website that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Website, access times and dates, and other statistics.

When you access the Service by or through a mobile device, we may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. We may also collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service or when you access the Service by or through a mobile device.

Usage data also includes any information that you knowingly provide to us when you fill any online forms on the Website. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Website's features. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact us.

1.3 Tracking technologies and cookies

We and the third-party service providers listed in Section [9. Third-party services and technologies] may use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service and store certain information. Tracking technologies include beacons, tags, and scripts used to collect and track information and to improve and analyse our Service.

Cookies and/or local storage. A cookie is a small file placed on your device. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent by making alterations to the settings of your browser. You can also customise the types of cookies sent to your browser by our Website by accessing the cookie consent settings at this link.
However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some parts of our Service.

Web beacons. Certain sections of our Service and our emails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us or our third-party service providers, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of a certain section and verifying system and server integrity).

2. Do Not Track signals

Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. As a result, this Website is not yet set up to interpret or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. Even so, as described in more detail throughout this Policy, we limit our use and collection of your Personal Information.

3. How we use the collected data

We use the information we collect in various ways, including to:

  • Provide, operate and maintain our Website
  • Improve, personalise and expand our Website

  • Send you emails

4. Storing personal information

We will retain and use the collected data for the period necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. Once the retention period expires, Personal Information shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after the expiration of the retention period.

5. Information transfer and storage

Depending on your location, data transfers may involve transferring and storing your information in a country other than your own. You are entitled to learn about the legal basis of information transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organisation governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by us to safeguard your information. If any such transfer takes place, you can find out more by checking the relevant sections of this document or inquire with us using the information provided in Section [14. Our details].

6. Information security

We secure information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorised access, use, modification, and disclosure of Personal Information in its control and custody. However, no data transmission over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed. Therefore, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that (i) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (ii) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and our Website cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party, despite best efforts.

7. Legal disclosure

We will disclose any information we collect, use or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger or acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your User account, and personal data will likely be among the assets transferred.

8. Your rights

You may exercise certain rights regarding your information processed by us. In particular, you have the right to do the following: (i) you have the right to withdraw consent where you have previously given your consent to the processing of your information; (ii) you have the right to object to the processing of your information if the processing is carried out on a legal basis other than consent; (iii) you have the right to learn if information is being processed by us, obtain disclosure regarding certain aspects of the processing and obtain a copy of the information undergoing processing; (iv) you have the right to verify the accuracy of your information and ask for it to be updated or corrected; (v) you have the right, under certain circumstances, to restrict the processing of your information, in which case, we will not process your information for any purpose other than storing it; (vi) you have the right, under certain circumstances, to obtain the erasure of your Personal Information from us; (vii) you have the right to receive your information in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance.
