Passing data to third parties

Your data will not be sold, transmitted or otherwise passed on to third parties without your express consent, nor will I use it for marketing purposes.

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons. SSL is an Internet security protocol which allows for the transmission of confidential or sensitive information in a secure way. You can recognize the encrypted connection in the URL with the HTTPS, where the S stands for ‘Secure’. Web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer also display a padlock icon in the address bar to indicate that an HTTPS connection is in effect.

I use cookies to analyse user traffic for the purpose of website statistics.

Use of cookies will also enable you to use the contact form on this website.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies. However, in a few cases some of the website features may not function as a result.

This website also includes social media features, such as share buttons. These features are provided by third-party social media platforms (for example, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest). If or when data is collected in this way, its processing is governed by the privacy policy of the respective social media platforms.
