Like most website operators, Pictoplasma collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. In order to do so, we use the open source software Piwik (Matomo.org) in a self hosted setup.
Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how you, our visitors use our website. Pictoplasma collects information on the use of the website by using session-cookies. Cookies are small text files stored on your data storage medium, which save the specific settings and data exchange via the browser. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, information on the age of the cookie and alphanumeric identifiers. Session-cookies help Pictoplasma to enable the use of the website and improve services by making the services more user-friendly.
Additionally, we collect personal information from visitors to our website through the use of online forms (when a user registers for the conference or orders in our online webshop) and every time you send us an email via our contact form, in order for us to email you back.
Use of personal information
We process personal information collected via this website to enable us to fulfil your orders and operate your account with us. We keep a copy of the information you provide to us for our internal purposes (for example to register you at the Conference).
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we need an email address and will do our best to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided, and that you agree to receive our newsletter.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that newsletters are sent in a consistent manner. This way the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. After the registration, the user receives a confirmation email to confirm. The address is only actively included in the distribution list if the registration is confirmed.
We use this data exclusively for sending the requested newsletter.
Starting from March 2021 Mailjet is used as our newsletter software. Your data is transmitted to Mailjet, but they are prohibited from selling your data and from using it for purposes other than sending our newsletters. Mailjet is a certified French newsletter software provider, working in accordance with the European directive 95/46, as well as the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
When giving us permission to store your personal data and email address and to send you our newsletter, you can revoke this consent at any time via the unsubscribe link in each email.
We do not share any personal information with anyone. We only disclose personal information to sub-companies within our group and suppliers we engage to process data or perform services on our behalf.
We recognise the concern you may have regarding privacy of information. We take great care to protect information provided by you from theft and unauthorised inspection or use. Our sites use industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to ensure the highest security for credit cards and personal details submitted to us.
