1. General information
2. Personal information collected by this site and why we collect it
This site collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
2.1 Website traffic monitoring
Like most sites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of our site visitors to better understand how they find and use our web pages. Although GA records data such as your geographic location, your device, your web browser, and your operating system, none of this information identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not provide access to it. We believe that Google is a third data processor that is compliant with the requirements of European legislation.
2.2 Contact forms and e-mail links
If you choose to contact us using a contact form or an email link, none of the data you provide will be stored to our site or transferred or processed by any third party data processor as defined below in the section «Our third-party data processors». Instead, these data will be sent to us via an SMTP protocol (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by a TLS security protocol (also known as SSL), meaning that email content is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. The content of the email is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
If you choose to subscribe in our newsletter, the email address you submit will be forwarded to MailChimp which manages our e-mail marketing services. MailChimp is a third-party data processor. Your e-mail address will not be stored in any of our databases. Your e-mail address will remain in the MailChimp database for as long as we continue to use our e-mail marketing services or until you explicitly request to be removed from the mailing list. You can do, using the delete link contained in all the email newsletters we send you. As long as your e-mail address remains in the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic e-mail newsletters from us.
3. How we manage your personal data
At Dessert University we place the highest priority on the protection of your personal data and comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We have taken the technical measures to ensure the protection of personal data while transmitting, managing and storing, but the nature of the internet is such that nothing can guarantee absolute protection. For this reason, you can also contact us by alternative means (eg by telephone).
4. What are your rights to your personal data
If you have an account on this site or have left any comments in the past, you may request that you receive an export record of personal data we hold for you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also ask to delete the personal data we hold for you. This does not include data that we are required to keep for administrative, legal or security reasons.
To request your exported personal data file or delete your personal data, you can contact using the contact form found on the page “Contact“.
5. About this site’s web server
All web traffic (file transfer) between this site and your browser is encrypted and transferred via the HTTPS protocol using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
6. Third-party personal data processors
We use a number of third parties to process personal data for us. These Third-party personal data processors have been carefully selected to comply with the legislation mentioned in this document.
7. Data breaches
For any of your personal information stored in our database, all necessary action will be taken to be as secure as possible. We will report any unlawful violation of our database or any third party data processing database to all relevant stakeholders as well as authorities within 72 hours of the violation if it is obvious that the personal data stored in recognizable form, have been stolen.
