When you use this website, data may be stored for various security purposes. This data may include the name of your internet service provider, the website that you used to link to our site, the websites that you visit from our site and your IP-Address. This data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use it to do so. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified. In cases when personal data is provided to others to provide you products or services you have requested, or for other purposes, we rely on technical and organisational means to assure that applicable data security regulations are followed.
This website may contain hyperlinks or “links,” to and from other Internet sites. These sites may have different privacy practices compared our website. These links also do not imply an affiliation between PUZZLE and the site owner, or any endorsement, approval or verification of any content contained on other websites.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data
The personal data you enter on the PUZZLE website are not allowed to be used by any third party, except as provided by the law and this Policy. The PUZZLE website collects and processes information that is considered purely personal data, as well as other information that is not considered as such. The PUZZLE website does not collect or process sensitive personal data, namely, data related to a user’s health, sex life, sexual orientation, genetic or biometric data, or data revealing one’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or membership in a trade union. When you sign up on the PUZZLE website, we collect the information you provide us, including your e-mail.
The personal data (simple and not sensitive) we collect are automatically anonymized or at least pseudonymised and encrypted. The personal information we collect will be only used for the defined, explicit, and legitimate purposes explained to you and will not be further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes. We limit the collection to only that information that is appropriate, relevant and necessary for the purposes explained to you. If not required by law, we will not obtain your consent before collecting your personal data from third parties. Instead, it will be deemed that you have previously given such consent to any third party from whom the PUZZLE website receives such information.

Third-party solutions are used to conduct web analytics, such as Google Analytics. Google may transfer certain information to third parties where required by law, or where such third parties process information on Google’s behalf. For more information about Google’s privacy policy, please refer here http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html With respect to Ad Servers: We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies. No personal information is collected.
Confidentiality is our priority. We are committed to maintaining the highest level of confidentiality with all of the information we receive from our customers.

Security of personal information
We do not share your personal data with others except as described in this Personal Data Protection Policy. The PUZZLE website addresses the issue of protecting your anonymity and personal information very seriously. We protect your personal data and, in general, the information we receive about you, and we guarantee their confidentiality, integrity and availability using appropriate security measures, according to the most up-to-date and advanced technological methods. These measures include technical and procedural steps to protect your data from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction.

Use of Cookies
The PUZZLE website use “cookies” to personalize your online experience. “A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on your computer by the user’s web browser. When you request another page from the server, your browser sends the cookie back to the server.” One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you might not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the PUZZLE website.

Subscription to our Newsletter
On the website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletters. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
The PUZZLE informs its stakeholders regularly using a newsletter about its activities. The newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

The PUZZLE Newsletters are sent via MailChimp. Their Privacy Policy can be viewed at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/ During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it, therefore, serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of the revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by communicating this to the controller e.g. by phone. 

Newsletter-Tracking
The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the PUZZLE may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletters, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The PUZZLE automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

Children’s Privacy
PUZZLE does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child/ren has/have provided us with Personal Data please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, PUZZLE may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. Any material change to our online privacy practices will be reflected in this Privacy Statement. We will indicate the date this Statement was last updated. We encourage you to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this website after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change. If you need any other information, please feel free to contact us.
