Who We Are
We are Papernoise a “virtual” design studio run by Hannes Pasqualin and Elizabeth Busani. This website can be reached at www.papernoise.net and www.papernoise.com
We do not have any interest in collecting any of your personal data, and try to keep any third-party service that involves collection of your data to a minimum. There is however some functionality of this website that involves the collection of personal data, which we have either not yet been able to remove/replace or that’s essential for the website and our business.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Email Contact Form
We like to keep this to a minimum, we only need your name and an email address. This data will be stored only in our email client, used to communicate with you and not shared with anybody else.
This website stores the following cookies, which can potentially track you:
font.googleapis.com / fonts.gstatic.com (and connected to that www.google.com and www.gstatic.com). These are cookies required to use Google’s free webfont service, which is built into the theme we use. Of course we all know that Google uses these to track you, we do not have any access to whatever data Google is mining through these cookies. The Google Fonts functionality is hardcoded into the theme, so for now there’s little we can do about it.
secure.gravatar.com similarly to the above. It’s hardcoded into WordPress. Gravatar is now run by Automattic, the company behind WordPress (the CMS this website is based on).
BTW. We recommend to install the free Privacy Badger extension for Chrome/Firefox to block common tracking cookies around the web!
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
- Videos: These are hosted on Youtube and Vimeo. Both services set a series of tracking cookies when you access the page.
- Audio: Music is either hosted on Soundcloud or Bandcamp. While Soundcloud does employ tracking cookies (more info here), Bandcamp does not (quoting: “Bandcamp cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.”)
We do not collect any user/usage statistics (niether using Google Analytics nor any other service).
Who we share your data with
We do not share any personal data with anybody, but be aware that you may be sharing your data with third-party services (eg. Google) by using this site and these could be sharing the data with others (check the links to the relative privacy pages to know more).
How long we retain your data
If you send us a message through the contact form, your message and contact data might be retained indefinitely since we are obliged by law to keep a record of all our business-related email communication.
What rights you have over your data
If you have sent us a message, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How we protect your data
This website does not store your data in any way. Your data, originating from the contact form, is only stored locally in our computer’s email program. We make sure that the computer that holds this information is equipped with up to date security software.
