We collect personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you place an order or contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email).

Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Generally, Google does not associate the anonymised IP address, transmitted from your browser through Google Analytics, with any other data held by Google.
