This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit nicmuhl.com or engage with digital marketing content.

PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

When you visit the nicmuhl.com, data about your device, browser, IP address, time zone and some of the cookies that are installed on your device are automatically collected. Additionally, as you browse nicmuhl.com, information is collected about the individual pages that you view, what sites or search terms referred you to nicmuhl.com, and information about how you interact with nicmuhl.com. I refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”.

I 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 nicmuhl.com, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
  • “beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse nicmuhl.com.

When I talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, I am talking both about Device Information and Demographic Information.

HOW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION USED

I use the information collected to:

  • Communicate with you
  • Build segmented data based on specific demographical information which can include your age, gender and location (if available)
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to my services.

I use the Device Information that I collect to help screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise my site (for example, by generating analytics about how my customers browse and interact with nicmuhl.com, and to assess the success of my marketing and advertising campaigns).

I will also use your information for marketing and retargeting purposes, as well as to create lookalike audiences for future marketing purposes.
