Like most websites, we use Google Analytics (GA) to monitor the activity of the users. We use this data to determine the number of people using our website and to better understand the way users find and use our website and to monitor their wandering around our pages. Even though GA records information like your geographical location, your device, your browsing program and your operating system, none of that information makes you identifiable to us.

Contact forms, Registering forms and email links

In case you decide to contact us using one of our contact forms, or when you register for a class or seminar, or you use an email link, none of the information that you are providing will be stored in this website or be transmitted or be processed from a third party that processed information, as described as the “Third party information processing”. Contrarily, all data you provide will be sent to us with an email through SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS protection protocol (sometimes known as SSL), which means that the content of that email will be encrypted before it is sent through to us. The content of that email is then locally decrypted on our local computers and devices.
