The privacy of your data -- and it is your data -- is a big deal to us, Fortyfive.
Our guiding principle is to collect only what we need. Here's what that means in practice:
When you register for our website, you submit a set of personal information that you accept to be shown publicly on the website. This information includes your name, location and other professional details. Your email is stored in our database securely but never shown publicly nor shared with any other third-party.
When you browse our website, your browser automatically shares certain information such as which operating system and browser version you are using. We track that information, along with the pages you are visiting, page load timing, and which website referred you for statistical purposes like conversion rates and to test new designs. We sometimes track specific link clicks to help inform some design decisions. These web analytics data are tied to your IP address anonymously. We use Google Analytics as the only tracking/analytics tool on this website.
You can adjust cookie retention settings in your own browser. To learn more about cookies, including how to view which cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, please visit: www.allaboutcookies.org. Our website responds to Do Not Track beacons sent by browser plugins.
We don’t collect any characteristics of protected classifications including age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or physical and mental abilities or disabilities. You may provide these data voluntarily, such as if you include a pronoun preference in your email signature when writing to us.
We also do not collect any biometric data.
Our website is hosted in Germany, EU. If you are located outside the European Union, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the EU. By using this website, participating in any of our services and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.
We apply the same data rights to all users, regardless of their location. The most privacy-forward regulations in place are the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which this website recognizes. These rights include:
All data is encrypted via SSL/TLS when transmitted from our servers to your browser. The database backups are also encrypted.
