Google Analytics service information (with anonymization feature)
The Marelearning website uses the Google Analytics service to record traffic to its website.
Google cookies are used to store certain information such as the length of the visit to the Marelearning website, the type of browser used, the location from which the visit originated and how often they were visited. Each time you visit a different page within the Marelearning webpage, the browser you use automatically submits encrypted and anonymized data to the Google Analytics platform.
The reason we use the Google Analytics service is that we want to process anonymous data in order to improve the Marelearning website such as deciding which page to improve and how as well as to evaluate ad serving. Important note: We do not use third party providers to place ads.
The storage time of the collected data is 6 months.
As part of the Google Analytics service, Marelearning also uses the ‘Anonymize IP’ feature. With this feature, your IP address is shortened by Google and anonymized when accessing the Marelearning website. More information on our Personal Data Protection Policy can be found on the relevant page on our website.
This data is stored exclusively for the time necessary to ensure the security of networks, information and services against accidental or unlawful or malicious acts that endanger the availability, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of stored or transmitted data (eg checking “denial of service” attacks).
How to control cookies through our site
You can control the installation of cookies from us as well as choose which cookies are used through the relevant control panel.
Some companies help us provide interactive online ads, such as advertising banners. These companies may collect and use customers’ information to help us better understand the offers, the promotion activities, and the types of ads that suit better our customers’ needs. The information collected is cumulative and therefore cannot be associated with specific persons. However, if you would prefer such companies not to collect such information, you can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/ and follow the “opt-out” procedure for collecting such information.

This policy document describes the collection and processing of user data when visiting or using the services provided on our Website. The visitor of our Website and / or user of our services must read carefully the terms and conditions for the protection of his / her personal information listed here.
Based on the legal framework for data protection, Marelearning is the “controller” of the data you provide to our company through the use of the Website. You, respectively, as the visitors are the “data subject”.
The purpose of our policy is to explain to you in the simplest possible way the following:
- What data we process, for what purpose and on which legal basis.
- For how long we store your data.
- Who is the recipient of your data.
- What are your rights and how can you exercise them.
- What legal interests do we pursue.
- What applies to personal information collected through cookies.
What is considered Personal Data
By law, Personal Data is any information that pertains to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”), such as name, email address, VAT number, etc. Identifiable is defined as a natural person whose identity can be verified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifying element such as name, ID number, location data, online identity (IP address, e-mail etc.) or one or more factors specific to his physical, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity.
What is Personal Data processing
Personal Data Processing is any operation or series of operations performed with or without the use of automated media, on Personal Data, such as the collection, filing, organization, structure, storage, customization, modification, retrieval, information search, use, transmission to third parties, dissemination, association, combination, restriction, deletion and destruction of Personal Data.
Which Personal Data we collect and for what purpose
As a rule, our Company only collects and processes visitors / users’ of the Website data only when they provide it directly and at their own discretion, so a simple visit to the site does not necessarily mean that we process your data. However, this rule cannot be fully applicable if the data is collected by means of cookies (more details for their usage policy see the relevant link).
Specifically, when you visit and navigate through the Marelearning’s website, the user’s web protocol address, date and time of login are automatically logged, but they do not reveal identifiable details of the user’s physical identity. They are exclusively used firstly to ensure the security of networks, information and services provided against accidental or unlawful or malicious acts that endanger the availability, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of stored or transmitted data (eg control attacks of “denial of service”) and secondly to provide statistical data analysis as far as the traffic of our website is concerned. In exceptional circumstances, such as e.g. when you voluntarily contact us via the Website in order to purchase licenses for our Products or by email, we process information you provide to us in order your request to be satisfied such as your name, email address, ID number, nationality etc. depending on your relationship with our site.
Furthermore, there are still some circumstances when we process your data through cookies. About the use and collection of cookies by us, you can read in detail the cookie usage policy which is available on our website. In any case, your consent is necessary for their processing by our Company.
The data is processed in order to provide you with access to our Website information.
Legal Basis for processing of Personal Data
The legal basis for the lawfulness of processing of Personal Data is the consent of the data subject during your visit at our website.
In case you are willing to purchase licenses regarding our Products, the legal basis for the lawfulness of processing of Personal Data is the performance of the contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.
Marelearning contact form

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time, without prejudice to the legality of the consent-based process of your Personal Data prior to its revocation.
Sending an email or submitting a contact form is not by itself sufficient reason neither to include you in our database nor to retain your data for marketing purposes.
Recipients of the data
The personal data of visitors and / or users of our website services are not transmitted to third parties for marketing purposes. We use third-party services (as “processors”) for very specific and absolutely necessary services, such as our content provider “SQLearn S.A.” who gains access exclusively to the Personal Data required for the provision of services requested by your end and google analytics. We have selected major organizations to be provided with security services in order to ensure that secure and of high quality services are provided. In some cases we may be required to share data with judicial or police authorities, under strict terms and conditions.

Finally, in the event of a data breach which may endanger the ability to exercise your rights and if this does not fall within one of the exceptions provided for in the Regulation, we are obliged to inform you without undue delay.
In this context, it should be noted that compliance with the legal framework for data processing and the exercise of your rights is a priority for our Company. For this reason, we have the right to request for additional necessary information in order to verify your identity before exercising your rights, such as e.g. in the case of a request to erase your data. In any case, our Company is obliged to respond promptly to your request within a reasonable time.

If your claims are manifestly unfounded or excessive, especially because of their recurring nature, the Company may either charge a reasonable fee, taking into account administrative costs for providing the information or for communicating or executing the action requested, or refuse to respond to your request.
The content of our website and the services provided are aimed exclusively at people over 18 years of age and we do not knowingly collect any information about people below this age. If you are under 18 you are not allowed to submit your information to us in any way.
As it is not technically feasible to effectively control your age at all times, we undertake to erase all relevant information immediately if it is reported and verified that the action of submitting personal information about minors has taken place. This deletion is without prejudice to the need to keep records in the event that our legal claims are substantiated, exercised or upheld, or upon being provided guardian’s consent.
