ABOUT DATA we COLLECT
Site tracking. We use a tool called Google Analytics to track and better understand how people are using the site. Google Analytics collects technical data about visitors including geographic location, device, internet browser, and operating system. However, none of this information identifies you individually to us. Google Analytics records your IP address when you browse our site, but Google Analytics does not give that information to us. We use the anonymous aggregated data from Google Analytics to understand how people find us, how many people visit the site, and which pages visitors spend time on and which they ignore. This information helps us improve the design and content of the website.
Anyone can subscribe to the Sleep Scientist Blog by completing a short form on our website. If you choose to subscribe, the personal data you provide is forwarded to Ascend, a marketing service from Wix which we use to send email campaigns. We keep a back-up copy of the email subscriber data on our system in case of a data loss.
As mentioned above, you can set your browser to refuse or delete cookies. To avoid web beacons you will need to unsubscribe from the Blog. You can unsubscribe at any time by using the unsubscribe link at the end of any newsletter or email us at to request that you be removed from the list.
If you subscribe to the Blog, your personal data will remain in Ascend's database until you unsubscribe or we stop using this service.
As we said at the top, we will not sell, rent, distribute, or make public your personal data. We share data only with Ascend, who distributes our email newsletter. We do not allow third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes, and we permit them to process your personal data only for the purposes we have explained here.
