Aiming to make you feel safe when visiting our website (forestview.eu) and/or dealing with our technologies and/or services, this Privacy Policy offers you information on how we deal with your personal and non-personal data – whether you visit our website, whether we collect data from you as a client (Advertiser, Publisher or Agency) or whether you are a user (visitor of our website or our clients’ website and platforms).

Analysis: Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics which is a web analyzing tool of Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google“) for the purposes of the adequate design and continuous optimization of our website. Google Analytics works with cookies and creates pseudomonysed usage profiles, which enable an analysis of your use of our website. Information stored in such cookies (such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL, Hostname of the accessing computer, time of server request) are usually transmitted to and stored on Google’s servers in the USA. We do this in the pursuit of our legitimate interests of better understanding how our website is used and to report aggregated usage statistics.

2.2 Newsletter

We send out newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter "Newsletter") subject to the consent of the recipient or a legal permission.

After you fill the Registration Form available in our website (forestview.eu/registeren), within 72 hours you will receive an automated reply via email informing you about you application status (approved or rejected) and giving you information about how to login in the affiliate platform. This email is an automated notification generated by our affiliate platform (HasOffers by Tune). Please refer to TUNE’s Privacy Policy for more information (https://www.tune.com/gdpr/)

Once your application to register our affiliate network is approved, you are automatically approved to receiving emails and newsletters. If you wish to stop receiving the newsletter you can either contact your account manager or opt-out in the end of the newsletter. The registration for our newsletter is handled through a so-called double opt-in procedure, which means you will receive an e-mail after your registration in our affiliate network, in which you will be asked to confirm your registration once again. The registrations for the newsletter are recorded in order to prove the accurate registration process according to legal requirements. This includes storing the time of logon and confirmation. Furthermore changes to the data stored by Mailchimp are being recorded.

The newsletter will be sent by means of "MailChimp", a newsletter platform of the US company Rocket Science Group // 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA or "Cheetah Digital”, a newsletter platform of the US company Experian Information Solutions, Inc // 475 Anton Boulevard, Costa Mesa, CA 92626 United States. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as further data described in the context of this information, are being stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send out and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. In addition, MailChimp can use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come from. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them independently or transfer data to third parties.

MailChimp is certified under the US-EU-Data-Privacy-Agreement the "Privacy Shield" and is committed to comply with EU data protection requirements. Furthermore, we have concluded the "EU Model Clauses" with MailChimp. This is a data protection agreement which obliges MailChimp to protect the data of our users, to process according to its privacy regulations on our behalf and in particular not to pass data on to third parties. You can view the privacy policy of MailChimp here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

There are cases where we direct the newsletter recipients to the MailChimp websites. E.g. our newsletters contain a link with which the newsletter recipients can access the newsletters online (for example in the case of display problems in the e-mail program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can subsequently change their data (like their e-mail address). Likewise, the data privacy policy of MailChimp is only available on their website.

You may terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, which means revoke your consent. Therewith your consent to the dispatch of the newsletter via MailChimp as well as the statistical analyses expire at the same time. A separate cancellation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to unsubscribe from our newsletter at the bottom of each newsletter.
