On the Site, you may subscribe to my newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns.

This behavior will not be passed on to third parties. At any time you may opt-out of my newsletter by clicking the link at the bottom of the email you receive. You will no longer receive information regarding the Site’s on-goings.

If you would like to provide your email address, it is only on a voluntary basis. This may occur if you sign-up for a promotion, purchase a product or decide to receive a newsletter. I will use your email to send you information regarding what you signed up for, and may also send additional emails that may be of interest to you. Again, at any time you may opt-out of emails by clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the last email sent.

I will not share your email address with third party providers.
