1. Collection and Sharing of Information

This section explains in detail how user information is handled.

With the exception of the cases mentioned in this section, we do not share users’ data with third parties.

1.1 Gumroad

In the event you wish to purchase any of Sinewave Lab’s or its affiliate products, you will be dealing with an authorized third party called Gumroad. You may be asked to supply some or all of the following information:

  • First and Last Name;
  • Business Name;
  • VAT Number;
  • Email Address;
  • Residence: Country, Address, City, State, Postal Code;
  • Paypal or Credit/Debit Card;

This information needs to be collected by Gumroad to (1) fulfill your order and (2) for Gumroad to stay compliant with the VAT MOSS tax regulation, which requires the collection of identifiable data from our clients regarding their physical locations and IP addresses.

The purchases you make through Sinewavelab.com are a transaction between you and Gumroad. Out of the information previously mentioned, Sinewave Lab only has access to the product you’ve purchased, date of purchase, and email address, which we will only use whenever we need to send you a product update. Any other information is gathered and maintained by Gumroad. Please read Gumroad’s terms of services and privacy policy to know more.

1.2 Mailchimp

In the event of subscribing to our newsletter, the user’s email will be collected, which is required to send the newsletter.

Your email will be sent to MailChimp , which will be the platform used to send newsletters. 

For each newsletter sent through Mailchimp , it will collect information that allows Sinewave Lab to identify which users opened the sent newsletter.

It is not possible for the user to subscribe to the newsletter and prevent this information from being hidden. The only way to avoid it is not to subscribe to the newsletter.

The servers of this service are located in the territory of the United States of America under the “ EU – USA Privacy Protection Shield ”, so your data may be transferred to that country.

1.3 Comments on the Site

When visitors leave comments on the Site, we collect the data shown on the comment form that is voluntarily provided, as well as the IP address.

An anonymous code created from your email address (also called a hash ) can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if the user is using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/ . After your comment is approved, your profile photo will be visible to the public in the context of your comment. 

Visitor comments go through an automatic spam detection service, which privacy policy can be accessed here.

1.4 Communication by Email

When the user contacts Sinewave Lab by e-mail or in any other way, Sinewave Lab will retain that communication in order to deal with and respond to your request.

1.5 Optional Cookies

This Site uses services that allow us to better understand the behavior of its users.

To make this possible, these services place small data files called cookies on your device. This is a common practice for most sites.

These services are:

1.5.1 Google Cookies: Analytics, Conversion Tracking, Remarketing, DoubleClick and Signals

We use cookies from the Google Analytics, Google Ads conversion tracking, Google Remarketing and Google Signals.

Google Analytics uses cookies and similar technologies to analyse and improve our website based on your usage behaviour. Informations include:

  • Visiting time, pages visited and time spent on each page of the web pages;
  • Details of the referring site (how the user arrived at this site)
  • Web browser type
  • Operating system (OS) type
  • Flash version, JavaScript support, screen resolution and screen color processing capability;
  • Network location and IP address (shortened / anonymized).

Google Ads conversion tracking and Ads remarketing also use cookies and similar technologies in order to measure the performance of advertisements placed and to show you individualised advertising messages on websites that collaborate with Google.

This website uses DoubleClick by Google, which uses cookies to provide website visitors with relevant advertisements. A cookie ID is assigned to your browser to keep a log of which advertisements have already been delivered to that particular browser. The DoubleClick cookie enables Google and its partner websites to show advertisements based on former visits on this or other websites. In the same way, the cookie ID allows the DoubleClick cookie to log conversions related to advertisement requests- such as when a user views a DoubleClick advertisement and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser’s website.

Through Google Signals technology, Google Analytics will associate the information it collects from your visit to our Site, with information from Google accounts of signed-in users who have consented to this association for the purpose of ads personalization. If you have enabled personalised advertising in your Google account, Google will be able to prepare data models and reports on website habits, which show for instance on which device you first clicked on an advertisement and on which device any eventual purchase took place.

You may opt out of interest-based advertising by visiting the Google Ads Settings web page: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/

In all cases, Google will truncate your IP address before analysis of the usage statistics, which means that conclusions cannot be drawn as to your identity.

The data generated is transmitted to Google Ireland Limited and stored on servers in the United States. The servers of this service are located in the territory of the United States of America under the “ EU – USA Privacy Protection Shield ”, so your data may be transferred to that country.  

1.5.2 Facebook Pixel

Our website measures conversions using visitor action pixels from Facebook.

These allow the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they click on a Facebook ad to reach the provider’s website. This allows an analysis of the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and their future optimization.

The data collected is anonymous to us as operators of this website and we cannot use it to draw any conclusions about our users’ identities. However, the data are stored and processed by Facebook, which may make a connection to your Facebook profile and which may use the data for its own advertising purposes, as stipulated in the Facebook privacy policy. This will allow Facebook to display ads both on Facebook and on third-party sites. We have no control over how this data is used.

You can also deactivate the custom audiences remarketing feature in the Ads Settings section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You will first need to log into Facebook.

The data generated is transmitted to Facebook Inc. and stored on servers in the United States. The servers of this service are located in the territory of the United States of America under the “ EU – USA Privacy Protection Shield ”, so your data may be transferred to that country.
