PRIVACY POLICY

Last modified: April 14, 2020

SCOPE OF THIS POLICY

This privacy policy describes the treatment of information provided or collected on the sites and applications of Christian Batist BV (including Solar Wind Publishing), whether on our digital properties or on applications we make available on third-party sites or platforms. We follow this privacy policy in accordance with applicable law in the places where we operate.

We aim to provide optimal privacy protection with respect to personal information from children and as such we are limiting the collection of personal information from children to the bare minimum required to use the site or application.

Please keep in mind that when you provide information to us on a third-party platform, the information you provide may be separately collected by the third-party platform. The information we collect is covered by this privacy policy, and the information the third-party platform collects is subject to the third-party platform’s privacy practices. Privacy choices you have made on the third-party platform will not apply to our use of the information we have collected directly through our applications. Please also keep in mind that our sites may contain links to other sites not owned or controlled by us and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites.
