You can sign up for our occasional Newsletter to receive updates and news about The Icelandic Textile Center. We never sign you up automatically. You have to use the sign up form on our website and confirm your subscription with the double-opt in process. To sign up we require and verify your email address and you can provide an optional name.
All subscriber data is collected by our newsletter service MailChimp. MailChimp offers extensive analytics tools to check if newsletters have been opened and links have been clicked. We only use those analytics to check how interesting and relevant our newsletters are for the entire list of subscribers over time. We never use them to analyze individual subscribers.

Other third-party services
We use the following third-party services to improve the performance and usability of our site:
We use the Contact Form 7 plugin to manage contact form submissions. The information is sent as email messages that only a select few are allowed to access. The information is also stored in the database on our hosting server for backup and later reference purposes. We store user input data sent through the contact forms on this website, along with meta information about the submissions, including the time stamp, the origin IP address, and the user agent (browser). We don’t set a particular time limit on storing information because we need it for future reference. If you want your information to be removed from our database, please contact us. We will remove it anytime there are concerns about your privacy. We do not share the information collected through our contact forms with any other parties.
You can exercise your rights by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can access information on all data stored about you. Get in contact and we will provide you with all information on data we have about you. You have the right to be ‘forgotten’ by me. Let us know and we will delete all your personal data that we store.

You have the right to withdraw your consent. Please tell us first, so we have a chance to address your concerns. If we fail in this, you can address any complaint to your national data protection authorities.
