The policies below are applicable to all our websites; all email newsletters published by us, including on behalf of our authors; and all other interactive features, services, and communications provided by us (collectively, "Sites"), however, accessed and/or used, that are operated by us, made available by us, or produced and maintained by BreakthroughVentures OÜ (collectively, "we", "us", or "our").
Any personal information provided to or to be gathered by us is controlled primarily by BreakthroughVentures OÜ, Narva mnt 5, 10117, Tallinn, Estonia
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Sites, personal information and non-personal information.
Personal information is any information that you may supply to us, that can individually identify you and includes your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information.
Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you but may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Sites and the Internet.
As a general matter, you can browse the Sites without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us with your personal information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information.
In addition, when you interact with the Sites, our servers may keep an activity log that does not identify you individually ("Non-Personal Information"). Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:
We collect and store your device's source IP address which may disclose the location of your device at the time you access the Sites. Advertisements and certain content may be directed to you as a result of this data.
In addition, in some cases the Sites can deliver content based on your current location if you choose to enable that feature. If you enable that feature, your current location will be stored locally on your device which will be used by the Sites to serve you certain content tied to your location. If you elect to have your location-based searches saved to your history, we will store such information on our servers.
We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources to, among other things, enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to better customize your experience on the Sites.
We securely store your data in our CRM (Customer Relationship Management) such as email tool, newsletter tools, and/or admin tools where we store copies of invoices, recipes, and any other information for tax and admin purposes.
