We care about Your Data!

The following paragraphs inform you about how we collect, use and process your personal data provided directly or indirectly to us.
Be aware that this policy can change without prior notice!

Terminology

“we” and “us” refers to the operators of this Service and “you” to the reader of its contents. This “service” includes all web pages found at dragonoverflowstudio.com and biocolonies.com.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or find something that’s wrong or suspicious, please contact us right away!

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies!

What Data Do We Collect?

First and foremost, we don’t profit on your data but rather use it to improve your experience.

There are two distinct types of information that we gather, (a) data provided by you intentionally (e.g. an email address intentionally entered in a textbox) and (b) cookies and usage data that are necessary for the page to work and help us analyze how you used it. Read on for more information.

Personal Data

These type of data can be used to contact or identify you. This includes, but is not limited to

  • Email Address
  • Cookies and Usage Data

Cookies & Usage Data

We may also collect information on how the Service is accessed and used (“Usage Data”). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. Third parties such as social media content may create third-party cookies, which are handled by their respective owners (read below). 

In detail, our Cookies save the option you choose in the Cookie Consent Popup, displayed to you the first time you visited our page. If you chose “Accept”, you allow us to use the Google Analytics (see below) and to save your choice for 60 days in form of Cookies. On “Reject Analytics”, Google Analytics scripts won’t be loaded, but your choice will still be saved for 60 days. 
Only if you chose “Reject All”, the Cookies saved are session-only, meaning that they will be deleted once you close your browser, but you’ll be asked for your Cookie Consent again on your next visit.

Even if you opted out of our Cookies, third parties may still write their own!
If you continue using our page, you automatically consent to the use of third-party cookies.

Tracking

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service and hold certain information.

Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our Service.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.

We’re located in Austria and so is our web host. Therefore, you agree that named personal data are transferred to this country and (at least partially) processed there. However, some of our third parties are located outside of Austria. Read their Privacy Policies for more information!

Security of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but be aware that there is no 100% secure way to transmit and storage them. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security!

TLS Encryption with HTTPS

Our pages are served to you via a secure HTTPS connection by default! Check for a “padlock” icon in your URL bar. If it’s there, the connection should be safe!

Service Providers

We do not host the Service on our own servers but use third parties (“Service Providers”) instead. These third parties have access to your data only on our behalf and mustn’t use them for other purposes. However, we are not responsible for their actions!

Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts to provide you with the correct fonts to display our Service. None of your personal data will be sent to Google through the Google Fonts API.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

You can opt-out of this analysis by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (‘ga.js’, ‘analytics.js’, and ‘dc.js’) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

Furthermore, we do not add the Google Analytics Scripts if you didn’t accept the Cookie Consent (by clicking the Accept button). If you have already allowed us to use Cookies and want to opt-out of Google Analytics, please delete them in your Browser or install the browser add-on (see paragraph above).

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google’s reCAPTCHA system to prevent Spam through our forms. reCAPTCHA is a service that is used to find out if you’re a human or a bot. During this process, data are transmitted to Google. Read more about this on the Google Privacy & Terms web page.

Embedded Social Media Services

We embed elements of Social Media providers to provide videos, images, and texts directly in our Service. Data are sent to these providers while embeds are active. However, we have no access to this data!

Newsletter

If you register for our newsletter (by clicking the “Subscribe” button), you intentionally send data (“email address”) to us. We use MailChimp as our marketing platform, therefore you acknowledge that your information will be transferred to MailChimp for processing. Learn more about MailChimp’s privacy practices

You can always opt out of the newsletter with the link found at the end of every newsletter-mail. We’ll then delete all data that we saved when you registered. You’re always able to re-register to our newsletter, even if you opped out.
