Do you collect any personal data?

No. We collect IP adresses of our visitors (which can be according to GDPR guidelines considered as a personal information), but we do it in a way it would never be possible to identify you. The following services work with part of your IP adress – Google Analytics.

  • Google Analytics – We have set IP Anonymization in Analytics  that anonymizes IP addresses of all our visitors.  For example, an IP address of 12.214.31.144 would be changed to 12.214.31.0. (If the IP address is an IPv6 address, the last 80 of the 128 bits are set to zero.) – You can read here more about IP Anonymization in Analytics
