Privacy and Policy

First, we’ll talk about general information.

Because we care about your privacy, we do everything we can to keep it safe. As a company, we take responsibility to protect the information you give us very seriously.

As soon as you sign up for a service, buy something, or download a report, we need to know many things about you. Therefore, you must read this Privacy Policy very carefully to learn how your personal information will be used.

The following is a list of how we get data.

Whenever you subscribe or download a report, we collect “personal data” from you. This includes your name and address and the email address you use when you do so (or that you authorize a third party to give to us on your behalf).

Our newsletters and emails may also contain “personal data” that we learn about you when you use them. Under the General Data Protection Regulation, we follow our responsibilities. We also follow any other data protection laws that may be in place at any given time.

There you go:

As soon as you register for an account, sign up for emails, complete surveys, join contests or give us information about yourself in your account profile, you give us personal information about yourself.

This includes your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, payment method, and VAT number.

This is in line with the GDPR: We don’t collect or handle any special types of personal data. The tech.EU website is not aimed at people under the age of 16, and we do not collect or ask for personal information from anyone under the age of 16, nor do we let people under the age of 16 sign up. If we find out that we got personal information from a minor without checking with their parents, we will delete it.

It’s not easy to keep track of everything.

People who subscribe to our newsletters and emails will keep getting tracked as long as they do that. Data that can be used to identify a person is called “personal data.” There’s also information about when and how often the newsletter was opened, so you can figure out if you’ve seen it or not, too. Improving our service and finding ways to tailor our service are the main goals of this process. A list of the things we do with the information we get:

  • Our newsletters are checked for patterns of use, like when they are opened and how many times they are clicked on so that we can better understand how our customers use them. We can change any messages we send to our customers based on how people use the site.
  • When you download one of our reports from our site, we track what you do with those reports. You get a message if you pay for it. It has your personal information, financial transactions, and activity history. A list of the things we do with the information we get:
  • When you download the report, you have to give your name and email address (or that you authorize a third party to provide it to us on your behalf).
  • Many people download our reports, which lets us see what they like and how we can make our products and communications better.
  • Several of our free papers are paid for by a company that doesn’t work for us. This means that if this is the case, your partner may be able to see your downloads. As long as you fill out this form, you agree that our partner can use your email address to get in touch with you.
  • We keep track of what you do there and what you say when you go to our website. Pageviews and article clicks are included in the number of users who have visited the site. Our website, advertising and promotions, and how users use their browsers are all the better because of this information.
  • If you buy a report or subscribe to a newsletter, we will also keep track of the money you pay us. All that can be found out from this transaction data is the amount, when it was paid for, what type of card it was (MasterCard, Visa), and how long it was until it ran out. When we use online payment processors, they don’t give us all the information about our customers’ credit cards (Stripe and Paypal).
