- I care about your privacy. I’m happy if someone reaches out to me in an email using their full name. But I find it just as important to respect those who want to browse, read and learn on courses.data36.com (and pay on payment.data36.com) anonymously.
- I’m Tamás Mester (yes, “Tomi” is my nickname). This website is operated by me. (More info below.) Although I often travel, I’m currently based in Budapest, Hungary.
- Courses.Data36.com is hosted on Teachable, Inc's servers that are located in the United States. Payment.data36.com is hosted on DigitalOcean's servers in Frankfurt.
- I use remarketing pixels on courses.data36.com and payment.data36.com. Actually, only Facebook remarketing. (No Google remarketing, no Twitter remarketing). But I do it ethically. (No agressive promotion, only notification that you might be interested in something.)
- I occasionally do A/B tests, using Google Optimize.
- I use my own analytics tool (the Data36 analytics system), as well. It works like Google Analytics, except that its 100% anonymized and it's 100% on my own servers (so it's not shared with Google, Facebook, or any other vendors...)
