When you sign up on this website, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.

When you browse our website we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

When you sign up the first time, you will receive an email that you must confirm in order to receive updates from us, unless explicitly stated in this privacy policy, such as grant of early access. After you have confirmed this email, we may send you additional emails about our service and other updates. You may opt out from receiving such emails at any time or unsubscribing from a link in the footer of the email.

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to sign up or complete a transaction, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent when you sign up or through a checkbox or through a confirmation link which you must check or click in order to actively confirm such use, and provide you with an opportunity to say no, or no longer receive such information, at any time after that.

How do I withdraw my consent?
If, after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at hello[at]scandinaviannature.org or mailing us at: Scandinaviannature.org, c/o Cato Salter, Solliveien 14B, 1384 Asker, Norway.

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE, COPY AND DELETION

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service. If, at any time, you require a copy of any and all personal data we store about you, you may request a copy of such data by contacting us at hello[at]scandinaviannature.org or mailing us at: Scandinaviannature.org, c/o Cato Salter, Solliveien 14B, 1384 Asker, Norway.

We will not send you marketing messages if you have opted out. You can choose not to receive messages in the future by either: (1) following the “unsubscribe” instructions located near the bottom of each email, or (2) you can opt-out by sending an email to hello[at]scandinaviannature.org. We will not share, sell, rent, swap, or authorize any third party to use your email address for commercial purposes without your permission. If you send us an email, we will use your email address to respond directly to your questions or comments. If you have signed up for Early Access, you will receive an email notifying you once your early access is granted, even if you opt out from receiving marketing messages or updates.

SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as social networks, advertising platforms, payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices (in particular device’s IP address (captured and stored only in anonymized form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language used to display our website). Hotjar stores this information in a pseudoanonymized user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will ever use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

SECTION 7 – COOKIES AND THIRD PARTY USE OF INFORMATION

If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows a customer to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, as aforementioned, you should note that the cookies may be necessary for a user to access and use certain features available on our website. You may opt out of Google Analytics tracking by installing the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On. You may opt out of ad serving on Google’s opt-out page.
