This document describes how we at StartupTools treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.
Visitors to our Website
When someone visits our website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. You can find more information on how cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy below.
If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
As part of the registration process for our e-mail newsletter, we collect personal information, your e-mail address. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to send information about new and updated documents, tools and services that we provide, to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information, to ask for feedback, to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses.
We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Erik Byrenius.
Links to Other Websites
This privacy notice does not cover the links within this website linking to other websites. Those sites are not governed by this private notice, and if you have questions about how a website uses your information, you’ll need to check that website’s privacy statement.
Access to Your Personal Information
