7labs (“us”, “we” or “our”) is the controller of your personal data provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with usage of our website.
Data We Collect
1. Data You Provide to Us
Personal Information is any information that can be used to individually identify you from a larger group. 7labs does not collect any Personal Information in order to provide services to users.
However, you may provide us Personal Information when you:
- Contact us via Email
- Register for an event
- Subscribe to our newsletter
- Request special services
The information that you provide in each case will vary. Depending on the situation, we may request your consent to use the Personal Information, along with the purpose of use, through relevant channels.
2. Automated Information Collection
In addition to the information that you provide to us, we may also collect information about you during your visit to the Website. We collect this information using automated tools that are detailed below.
7labs follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Cookies & Web Beacons
A “cookie” is a small data file transmitted from a website to your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are usually defined in one of two ways, and we may use both of them: (1) session cookies, which do not stay on your computer after you close your browser, and (2) persistent cookies, which remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire.
These cookies are used to store information including visitors’ preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users’ experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information.
We use the following categories of cookies on our Website.
Functional: These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Website, use its features, show the cookie notification bar, remember your cookie acceptance choice and apply this choice. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Analytical: These cookies are placed to make it possible for us to analyze user interactions with this Website (with Google Analytics) and optimize it to serve better content and usability.
Advertising: These cookies are placed in order to show you personalized advertisements (via Google AdSense) that are close to your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.

Embedded Web Links
Links provided in our emails and, in some cases, on third party websites may include tracking technology embedded in the link. The tracking is accomplished through a redirection system. The redirection system allows us to understand how the link is being used by email recipients. Some of these links will enable us to identify that you have personally clicked on the link and this may be attached to the Personal Information that we hold about you. This data is used to improve our service to you and to help us understand the performance of our campaigns.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this Website 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 (Third-party partners).
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
