4. Use of your personal data
We use your email address to send a confirmation message necessary to complete the registration process on our website and to send order confirmations. Personal information is only collected or processed if you provide this information voluntarily, for instance as part of a questionnaire. We employ all technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of the personal data shared with us and to protect it, using the latest technology, from being accessed by unauthorized parties. However, when transmitting extremely sensitive data or information, it is recommended that you use the postal system as an alternative since absolute security cannot be ensured for email communications. We only use your email address to send you newsletters and other offers that could be of interest to you if you have given us your consent. You have the option to revoke your consent at any time and no longer receive newsletters and emails from us. More information on exercising your right to revoke can be found under the heading “Right to Object and Right to Revoke.”
4a. Note on tracking tools (such as Google Analytics)
We have found that the data provided by such a tracking tool is not very useful to us and that these data were not analyzed in the past. As a consequence, we have decided to fully forego the tracking of our visitors in future using Google Analytics.

The legality of the data processing which took place prior to your revocation of consent shall remain unaffected by your revocation.
