What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We do not use automated decision-making. Regarding profiling, we use the tracking tool Google Analytics.
The Company uses Google Adwords, an online advertising/remarketing tool from Google Inc. to place ads in Google search results and other websites which you may find of interest. To help the Company track sales and other conversions from our advertisements, the Company uses the conversion tracking feature provided by Google Adwords which places a cookie on your device when you click on one of the advertisements. The Company is not responsible for the placement of these cookies. Google uses the information obtained from conversion cookies to compile statistics including the number of users who clicked on the ad and the pages then accessed by each user. Conversion cookies are only active for 30 days and cannot be used to identify any Personal Data.
