Data Types We Collect and the Ways We Use Them
The only data types we collect are marketing data vital for updates or promotional offers, and minimal personal information (name, address, telephone number & email address). The latter is provided on the check-out page, as we need it to create an account. No such data are disclosed to the third parties; they are treated as anonymous statistics.
In case we haven’t secured your opt-in consent to receive such information, we will not send you any marketing materials or personal data. You can opt for unsubscribing from these materials any time by following the instructions included in the e-mail, or send a reply with a specific request.
Cookies and Log Files
We use cookie technology as part of our web site’s statistical reporting. A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer by a website to help keep track of different things to personalize your online experience. A cookie itself does not contain or collect information; it can help a website deliver a more user-friendly service. Cookies are central to the customization of the internet and online behavioral advertising. We gather statistical data on which pages are visited, what is downloaded, the Internet provider’s domain name and country of the visitors, as well as the addresses of sites visited immediately before, and after, coming to www.marcdegroote.com.
We also use standard web server log files. With their help, we count how many people visit www.marcdegroote.com and evaluate our site’s technical capacity in order to continually enhance it. We try to arrange the pages in the most user-friendly way, to keep the site browser-friendly and to improve the usefulness of the pages for our visitors. It’s site traffic, not information on visitors, which comes into the focus of our attention.
Google Analytics helps us measure the effectiveness of our advertising, as well as simplicity and efficiency of our site’s usage.

We do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose personal data about our web site visitors. The only exceptions are described below: we may share this personal information with service providers to perform various services on our behalf. These service providers are not entitled to use this information for their own marketing purposes.
