At Milk the Sun (MtS), protecting your data is our top priority. The following data privacy statement will provide you with an overview of how we handle data and how we protect you against malpractice.

Purpose of the data privacy statement

This declaration relates to the data disclosed by visiting our website and provides information about how we handle your data.

Server data

For technical reasons the following data transferred to us or to our web space provider is recorded (in so-called server log files):

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • The website which sent you to our website (referrer URL)
  • Website you are visiting
  • Date and time of your access
  • Your internet protocol (IP) address.

This anonymous data is saved separately from any personal data you may have provided and it therefore does not enable us to infer specific individuals. The data is analysed for statistical purposes in order to optimise our internet presence and our services.

How we use personal data

Registration function

Our website offers the option to register. The data entered during registration, as shown in the input screen of the registration form, will be collected and saved solely for use in our service.

A user account is required to use our services. This user account contains personal data such as your name, address, or e-mail address. The information is saved to our database for the purpose of future logins.

In addition, data is automatically saved to our log files, which we receive from your browser during your visit (a browser is for example Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). This means the IP address is noted and a cookie is saved to your computer.

When you register to use our website, we will also save the IP address and the date and time of your registration. This is one of our security measures in case a third party misuses your data and registers on our website without your knowledge. The information will not be disclosed to third parties. Data collected during this process will not be matched with data that may have been collected by other components of our website.

Additional data collected

In the event that IP anonymization is activated for this website, Google will first abbreviate your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, to generate reports on website activities, and to provide the website operator with other services associated with use of the website and internet use. These include, among other things, the use of third party advertising related to the user’s interest according to the data obtained by Google and visit data (e.g. age, gender and interest) in Google Analytics as well as display advertising such as remarketing, reports on impressions on the Google display network, integration of DoubleClick campaign manager or Google Analytics reports about the service based on demographic characteristics and interests.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in line with Google Analytics will not be matched with other Google data.
