PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit www.growthtale.com (the “Site”). The ELENI D. KOLLIGA (the "Company") knows how our clients and visitors like you, value your privacy, and we have created this privacy policy to ensure that you understand our policies and procedures, what personal information you must provide if you wish to use the Site and, ultimately, just how we use such personal information. The Company that is based in Greece, is the one that controls the processing of Personal Information on the Site.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT.

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

    - “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
    - “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
    - “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
  

Additionally, when you fill in the contact form, book a meeting or subscribe through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name and email address.  We refer to this information as “Contact Information.” We collect personal information from you when you voluntarily provide it by (1) booking a meeting for more information about our services on our Website; (2) contacting via the contact form to obtain information relating to our services; (3) signing up to receive newsletters or other literature; (4) signing up as a member (i.e to comment under a blog post).

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Contact Information.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We use the Contact Information that we collect generally to fulfill any request placed through the Site (including processing your email address). Additionally, we use this Contact Information to:

- Communicate with you;
- Screen our requests for potential risk or fraud; and
- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our services.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns). We may share Device Information with third parties for any number of reasons, including advertising, promotional and/or other purposes. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent or you can flush your browser of cookies from time to time. If you choose to disable cookies or refuse to accept a cookie, you may not be able to utilize all features of the Site.

 

We also reserve the right to access and/or disclose any information as required by courts or administrative agencies and to the extent necessary to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Site rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or to investigate any suspected conduct which the Company deems improper.

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION - THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential: 

 

 

  • We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our visitors use the Site--you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. Google Analytics employs cookies that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there. In using Google Analytics our website employs the extension “anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from EU/EEA member states. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to our website. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly as noted elsewhere in this Privacy Policy. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

  • We use the “Custom Audience pixel” of Facebook on our website. With its help, we can keep track of what users do after they see or click on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to monitor the effectiveness of Facebook ads for purposes of statistics and market research. Data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook. Facebook can connect this data with your Facebook account and use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Policy which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and outside of Facebook. A cookie can also be saved on your device for these purposes. Please click here if you would like to withdraw your consent https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_=_

  • Google Tag Manager is a tag management system to manage JavaScript and HTML tags used for tracking and analytics on websites. Tags are small code elements that, among other things, are used to measure traffic and visitor behavior: to understand the effect of online advertising and social channels; to set up remarketing and orientation towards target groups; and to test and optimize websites. GTM makes it easier for us to integrate and manage our tags. We use GTM on our website to include the following tracking tools: Google Analytics. For more information about GTM’s privacy practices can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and terms of use at https://www.google.com/analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/.
