Privacy Policy

The privacy policy is to be read and fully understood before using this site, or subscribing to the newsletter.

Privacy Policy

This text informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information (as defined below) in connection with your relationship with us as a user or a client of this website. It also takes into consideration the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council adopted on the 27th April 2016 (“GDPR”) which will become applicable as of the 25th May 2018.

We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We use your Personal Information for providing our services, and in addition to this we use services of third parties, like the reports of Google Analytics, which has their own privacy policy, which is tracking user traffic on our website. By using our services and this website, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

1. Who we are

Our website address is: https:// www.criticalinvestor.eu

2. How to contact us

For contacting us, go to the menu Contact, and fill out this form.

3. Consent to Collect

We ourselves collect data from users that have created free accounts with us, more specifically just email addresses.

We ask for consent during the account creation process with a double opt in process, through a check box and a confirmation link by email. A link to this page is provided during the account creation process.

The legal basis for us to collect the data is to be able to provide free users with a newsletter service.

4. Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

5. Links to Other Sites

Our website contains links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. When connecting to such other websites you will no longer be subject to this policy but to the privacy policy of the new site. We therefore strongly advise you to review the privacy policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.

6. Log Data

We use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyse information that your browser sends whenever you visit our website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our website that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. The sole purpose of using this service is to track the performance of this website over time, by analyzing/monitoring total amounts of users/pageviews, without any specific individual user data being shown in reports. These third-party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.

7. Who we share your data with

No one. Whatever information you provide us with, we keep to ourselves unless you have given us written consent to share it with any third party.

8. How long we retain your data

For subscribers that register on our website, we store the email addresses. The staff and website administrator can see that information. A subscriber can chose to unsubscribe at any time, at which point the website administrator will delete the relevant email address from our records. This information will then be forever lost and erased.

9. What rights you have over your data

You can always request that we erase any personal data we might hold about you.

10. Where we send your data / Compliance with laws

Nowhere. Whatever information you provide us with, we keep to ourselves unless you have given us consent to share it with a third party. However, please note we will disclose your Personal Information where required to do so by law or by court order or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement or to protect the security or integrity of our Service.

11. Communications

We only use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters. You may opt out of receiving this newsletter from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.

12. Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is completely secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

13. Who Has Access to Our Data?

The Critical Investor staff and the website administrator have access to users data for the purpose of providing services, more specifically sending newsletters.

No personal identifiable data is stored on staff or website administrator computers on a permanent basis. The website administrator will be requested to delete this data from hosting servers etc at the end of the contract with The Critical Investor.
