The processing of data from forms

The data shared through forms on the site is solely used to perform the requested action, such as responding to a query or sending a notification when a new article is published. This data is processed based on the performance of the agreement or contract between us.

The processing of data for the newsletter subscription

The purpose of collecting data on newsletter recipients is to gain insights into their reading and clicking behavior. This helps us understand who opens the newsletter, how often, and when. It also provides information on which links are clicked. By analyzing this data, we can better tailor the timing and content of the newsletter to the preferences of our readers.

For the processing of data, we have entered into a data processing agreement with Mailerlite. The collected data is not shared with other parties. The processing of data is based on the consent given by the users. The data of users who unsubscribe from the newsletter will be deleted within four weeks.

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the processing of data for the newsletter, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
