How Do We Collect Information About You?
We obtain information about you in the following ways:
Information You Give Us Directly
For example, we may obtain information about you when you take part in one of my workshops, purchase products or services, sign up for a private session or register to receive my periodic newsletters.
When You Visit This Website
We, like many companies, automatically collect the following information:
technical information, including the type of device you’re using, the IP address, browser, and operating system being used to connect your computer to the internet. This information may be used to improve the services we offer.
information about your visit to this website, for example, we collect information about pages you visit and how you navigate the website, i.e. length of visits to certain pages, products and services you viewed and searched for, referral sources (e.g. how you arrived at our website).
What type of information is collected from you?
The personal information we collect, store and use might include:
your name and contact details (including postal address, email address and telephone number);
information about your activities on our website and about the device used to access it, for instance, your IP address and geographical location;
any other personal information shared with us.
How and why is your information used?
We may use your information for a number of different purposes, which may include:
providing you with the services, products or information you asked for.
processing orders that you have submitted;
carrying out our obligations under any contracts entered into between you and us;
keeping a record of your relationship with us;
conducting analysis and market research to better understand how we can improve our services, products or information;
seeking your views or comments on the services we provide;
notifying you of changes to our services; and
sending you communications which you have requested and that may be of interest to you. These may include information about campaigns, fundraising appeals, and activities and promotions of goods and services.
How long is your information kept for?
We keep your information for no longer than is necessary for the purposes it was collected for. The length of time we retain your personal information for is determined by operational and legal considerations. For example, we are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfill our statutory and regulatory obligations (e.g. tax/accounting purposes). We review our retention periods on a regular basis. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Who has access to your information?
We do not sell or rent your information to third parties. We do not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes. However, we may disclose your information to third parties in order to achieve the other purposes set out in this policy. These third parties may include:
Third Parties Working On Our Behalf
We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, suppliers, agents, subcontractors, and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process payments and send you mailings). However, when we use these third parties, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the services and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and prevents them from using it for their own direct marketing purposes. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
Embedded content from other websites
Data protection law requires us to rely on one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. We consider the following grounds to be relevant:
Where you have provided specific consent to us using your personal information in a certain way, such as to send you email, text and/or telephone marketing.
Performance of a contract
Where we are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under it, like when you buy products and services.
Where necessary so that we can comply with a legal or regulatory obligation to which we are subject.
Where it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as the information is used for is fair and does not duly impact your rights).
We consider our legitimate interests to be running tinabozic.com as a business in pursuit of our aims and ideals.
For example to:
send postal communications which we think will be of interest to you;
conduct research to better understand our supporters and to improve the relevance of our fundraising;
understand how people choose/use our services and products;
determine the effectiveness of our services, promotional campaigns and advertising;
monitor whom we deal with to protect the business against fraud, money laundering, and other risks;
enhance, modify, personalize or otherwise improve our services /communications for the benefit of our customers; and
better understand how people interact with our website.
When we legitimately process your personal information in this way, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example, where users would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us.
We’re committed to putting you in control of your data so you’re free to change your marketing preferences (including to tell us that you don’t want to be contacted for marketing purposes) at any time using the ‘unsubscribe’ links at the bottom of each email we send, or by emailing email@example.com or by writing to Tina Bozic s.p., Gregorciceva 25, 5000 Nova Gorica, Slovenia, Europe.
We will not use your personal information for marketing purposes if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted and will retain your details on a suppression list to help ensure that we do not continue to contact you. However, we may still need to contact you for administrative purposes like where we are completing a purchase transaction
