Cookies
Our site may place and access certain first party cookies on your computer or device. First party cookies are those placed directly by us and are used only by us. We use cookies to facilitate and improve your experience of our site and to provide and improve our products and services. By using our site you also may receive certain third party cookies on your computer or device. Third party cookies are those placed by websites, services, and/or parties other than us. We use third party cookies on our site for website analytics by Google Analytics and by Clicky.com, both of which use cookies. Website analytics refers to a set of tools used to collect and analyze usage statistics, enabling us to better understand how people use our site.

We may use cookies and web beacons on our site for a number of reasons, all of which are designed to improve your experience of using it. Cookies allow you to navigate around our site better, and cookies and web beacons enable us to tailor and improve our site by saving your preferences and understanding your use of it.

Marketing And Mailing Lists
With your permission and where permitted by law, we also may use your data for marketing purposes, which may mean contacting you by email with information, news, and offers on our products and services. We will not, however, send you any unsolicited marketing or spam.

If you subscribe to our newsletter online or by asking us to add you to our mailing list(s), or if you purchase services from us, your name and email address are added to our group email list for online mailing purposes.

This information remains confidential and is the property of https://astrologeranne.com// and ANB Communications. The https://astrologeranne.com/ website and ANB Communications store information in a secure environment. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job receive access to personally identifiable information.

Please note that group emails are managed through AWeber, a third party service that provides email newsletter support for https://astrologeranne.com/ and ANB Communications. These emails differ from individual emails, which go to an individual rather than a group, typically in response to an inquiry using the form on our Contact page.

We use AWeber to manage our group email lists and to send newsletters and other emails. AWeber takes consumer privacy very seriously and takes every measure to protect the data of its customers and their subscribers. You may view AWeber's privacy policy here: https://www.aweber.com/privacy.htm.

AWeber complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and as a customer of AWeber, the https://astrologeranne.com/ website and ANB Communications also comply with the GDPR and with AWeber's policies and other terms of service for data confidentiality and all other aspects of managing mailing lists, newsletters, and communication with subscribers. AWeber is self-certified with both the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, and AWeber complies with lawful transfers of EU/EEA personal data to the U.S. in accordance with its Privacy Shield Certification.

In addition to using cookies on our site, we use cookies and similar technologies in group emails we send to newsletter subscribers, collectors, or others whose names and emails appear on one or more mailing lists maintained by the https://astrologeranne.com/ website and ANB Communications. Just like the cookies on our site, we use these to help us understand how you use our site and learn how we can keep improving it.

We use web beacons in group emails to detect when (or whether) you open an email and how you have interacted with it as well as other information such as your email client, web browser, computer or device, and IP address. We also may use web beacons to serve up emails in a particular format so that what you receive is best suited to your computer or device.

Emails from us may contain links. Each link contains a unique tag, which enables us to track which links are being used and by whom. We use this information to improve and tailor our emails in the future so they are of most interest and relevance to you.
