We employ industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorized access of data about you that we store, including personal information.
We do not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent, unless:

We currently use Google Analytics (traffic analysis, SEO optimization), Campaign Monitor (mailing list management) and Kissmetrics (analytics). We listed below what data these third parties extract exactly. Feel free to check out their own Privacy Policies to find out more.

We employ and contract with people and other entities that perform certain tasks on our behalf and who are under our control (our “Agents”).
