5.5.4 We collect your information in different ways outlined in these bullet points, which are explained in the sections that follow below:
Our website quovadiz.com through Google Analytics (GA) & Cookies
Contact Form or Contact Buttons on our Website
Direct email through Hello@quovadiz.com
e-Newsletters or e-shot marketing (WIX ‘Shout Out’)
Applications or CVs
Contests or competitions we may run
Social Media sites and apps, such as:
Third Party Services, such as:
Wix.com & Shout Out
Google Analytics (GA)
If you are visiting our Website and viewing pages, we do not collect any Personal Data that identifies you as an individual. However our quovadiz.com website may automatically collect non-identifier information about your visits, such as browsing patterns or whether you are using a computer, smartphone, tablet or other device. Information collected in this way does not reveal who you are or disclose to us any Personal Data. This information is used only in aggregate form to analyse, manage and develop the Website and is not linked directly to you or any individual. This is called Site Visitation Tracking and is through Google Analytics using Cookies.
5.5.6 Site Visitation Tracking & Google Analytics (GA).
Like most websites, our Website uses Google Analytics (GA) to track your interactions as a site user. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to establish the number of site visits from different countries and which pages of our site are most visited for how long, to better understand how our web pages are found and used and to track a site visitor’s journey through our site. The reason is to enable us to improve the usability and content and your user experience of the site.
Although GA records such data as well as your approximate geographical location, type of device you use (computer, smartphone, tablet) and the day of the week and time of day you access our site, your internet browser (e.g. Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc.) and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. However this information helps us to make technical, design and content decisions such as language translation in order to deliver a site that works well for you.
We retain this type of data indefinitely for as long as we feel it proves useful to manage and improve web content and services. The Data Protection Laws allow us to collect and process this data as there is a legitimate interest in doing so.
GA also records your computer’s IP address (a number that identifies a specific network device on the internet and is required for your device to communicate with websites) which could be used to personally identify you. However Google do not grant us access to this. It could be used if necessary to block disruptive or illegal use of our site. We consider Google to be a Third Party Data Processor (see Third Party Services below).
For your information, our website uses the Wix.com implementation of GA.
When you visit the site, we may send one or more Cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer, smartphone or tablet that uniquely identifies your web browser. Your browser sends these Cookies back to the website every time you visit the site again, so it can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on your screen. As mentioned above, a Cookie may also convey information to us about how you browse our site. A Cookie does not collect personal information about you.
A persistent Cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent Cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent Cookies can be removed or cleared by following your web browser’s instructions in settings. A Session Cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser.
You can set your web browser settings to refuse or disable all Cookies or to indicate to you when a Cookie is being sent. However some features of our site may not function as well if the ability to accept Cookies is disabled. If you do decide to disable or delete Cookies altogether, some websites won’t work as well because they rely on Cookies to provide you with a service you have requested. Disabling Cookies may lock you out of many of the most widely-used sites on the internet like YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo mail, and others.
5.5.8 Our Website’s server.
Our Website is hosted by Wix.com in data centres in the United States and Europe. From time to time, we may transfer hosting from one location to another. Notwithstanding the above, the Wix.com platform complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US privacy shield framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce, regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States, and therefore adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.
The Wix.com platform is compliant with the Data Protection Laws. All traffic (transferral of files) between our Website and your browser is encrypted and delivered over HTTPS. HTTPS means ‘Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure’. This type of security means that information sent between computers are in ‘code’ and scrambled using that code so that no one in-between can read what is conveyed between computers. This keeps your information safe from hackers.
5.5.9 Contact Form or Buttons on our Website.
You may have a request or enquiry and choose to contact us using a Contact Form or Buttons on our contact us page. If you do, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website.
Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted before being sent across the internet. The email arrives in one of our inboxes and content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
Your Personal Data in this type of email is your email address, name, date and time of sending and any other information you included, which are held securely. We do not share it or pass it on to any Third Parties, only if necessary with those staff, associates, partners or suppliers working with quovadiz.com and only for the purposes of handling your request or enquiry or resolving any issue. Your Personal Data are held indefinitely for as long as quovadiz.com. continue or we operate. We reserve the right to archive or delete this type of email containing your Personal Data at a time we choose without contacting you and without your consent.
5.5.10 Direct Emails.
You may email us direct and provide us voluntarily with your email address, name and any other information you choose to include in your email. If you email us, we do not need your consent to email you because email correspondence enables us to:
deal with your requests and enquiries,
contact you with information about our services ore events,
notify you of any changes of practices or policies or terms and conditions, and

The Data Protection Laws allow us to email you for these purposes without explicitly requiring your consent because the processing of your personal information is for your and our legitimate interests, as you are a customer or enquirer; or because processing is necessary because we have a contract with you.
We also may use your email address to send you Important Information relating to events and services, such as security or safety notices or warnings, cancellations or delays or changes to programming of events.
If you correspond with us by email, we process and retain your Personal Data and the content of your email messages and attachments, and our responses. Our Email systems and Customer Database securely store your Personal Data which are held indefinitely or for as long as quovadiz.com continue or we operate.
We reserve the right to archive or delete these types of email containing your Personal Data at a time we choose when we deem it no longer necessary to process it to contract with you or deliver our services to you, without contacting you and without your consent.
