Personal information that our website collects and the reason why we collect it

Cookies

Like most websites, this site uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If you deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

Site visitation tracking

On our website, we have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the user interaction.

We use this data to understand the visitors of of website better and to optimize our website. Google Analytics provides online reports to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

Although Google Analytics records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. For the web analytics through Google Analytics we use the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the user is anonymized by Google when accessing our website. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section “Our third party data processors” below).

Google Analytics makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop Google Analytics from tracking any part of your visit to our website.

Comments function in the blog

We offer users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual posts on the blog, which is on our website. If you leave a comment to any post published on this website, the comments made by you are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on your chosen name. The supplied email address will be stored in the database, but never been displayed on our website. If the email address is linked to a Gravatar account, your Gravatar photo might also be displayed

In addition, your computer’s IP address assigned by your Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case a user violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in our own interest, so that we can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of Beveled Edge.

This data is currently stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this website is build on (WordPress). Pseudonymisation, meaning  that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific user without the use of additional, separately stored information (key), is a requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to implement it on our website as soon as we are able to.

Your comment and it’s associated personal data will remain on our site until we see fit to either 1.) remove the comment or 2.) remove the blog post. Should you wish to have the comment and it’s associated personal data deleted, please email us using the email address that you commented with.

If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before posting a comment on our blog.

NOTE: You should avoid entering personally identifiable information to the actual comment field of any blog post comments that you submit on this website.

Subscription to comments in the blog

The comments made in our blog may be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog post.

If a user decides to subscribe to the option, we will send an automatic confirmation email to check whether the specified email address belongs to the user. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.

This data is currently stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this website is build on (WordPress). Pseudonymisation, meaning  that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific user without the use of additional, separately stored information (key), is a requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to implement it on our website as soon as we are able to.

Contact forms and email links

Our website contains information that enables a quick and direct electronic contact to us. If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by you are not stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in section “Our third party data processors”. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.

Email newsletter

On our website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from us. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address registered by you, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to prove whether you as the owner of the email address has subscribed to the newsletter.

We use the email marketing services of MailChimp, which we consider to be a third party data processor (see section “Our third party data processors” below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.

Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.

If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.

While you have subscribed to our newsletter service, we will inform you regularly by means of newsletters.

Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, we may see if and when an email was opened by you, and which links in the email were clicked up by you.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by us in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to your interests. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

If you withdraw from receiving the newsletter, we will delete all these personal data.

Advertisement success tracking

We use the advertisement services Google AdWords from Google, which we consider to be a third party data processor (see section “Our third party data processors” below). Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows us the promotion of our website by placing ads in Google search engine results and the Google advertising network.

If a user reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is stored in the browser of the user through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create anonymous visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics in order to determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the user.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop Google AdWords from tracking any part of your visit to our website.

Security measurements

On our website, we have integrated security measurements to secure the best experience for our users. The security service we use is provided by Wordfence, a service of Defiant Inc. No data is transfered to Wordfence.

Wordfence stores information in our database when it detects a brute-force login attempt. Brute-force login attempts are repetitive login or “forgot password” failures produced by users. Only information about the computer’s IP address related to the brute-force attempts are stored in the database. Wordfence does not store any user related data in our database while a visitor uses the standard services provided by our website.

This data is currently stored in an identifiable fashion; a limitation of the content management system that this website is build on (WordPress). Pseudonymisation, meaning  that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific user without the use of additional, separately stored information (key), is a requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to implement it on our website as soon as we are able to.

We use this information to analyze potential security threats and take actions to eliminate any security threats that will impact the safe use of our website and experience of our users.

Wordfence makes use of cookies. If you deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions enabled by Wordfence may be entirely usable, but will not negatively impact the security of our website.
