What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors post comments on the site, the information provided in the comment form is stored in addition to the visitor's IP address and the visitor's browser version. This is done to help avoid frivolous comments.

An anonymous text string generated on the basis of your email address (also called a "hash") may be sent to the Gravatar service to check whether you have an account there. Gravatar's privacy policy is located here: After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be visible to anyone in connection with your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images that contain information about the location where they were taken (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the site can download and extract such information from images on the site.

Information cookies

If you leave a comment on this site, you can ask us to remember your name, email and website. This information is stored in a cookie and is there to make things easier for you. You will then not have to re-enter this information the next time you post a comment. These cookies expire after one year.

If you visit our login page, we will create a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and disappears as soon as you close your browser.

When you log in, cookies are created that store your login information and the choices you have made about how content is displayed. Cookies with login information expire after two days, while those with viewing choices last for one year. If you check the "Remember me" box, your login information will be kept for two weeks. If you log out of your account, these cookies will disappear.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data, but only the ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the website from which the embedded content originates.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking systems and monitor what you do via this embedded content. This also includes tracking your actions via the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to the website.


Who we share your information with

How long we keep information about you

If you leave a comment, the comment and information about the comment will be stored indefinitely. This is so that we can recognize follow-up comments and approve them automatically instead of putting them in a queue where they have to be manually approved by an editor.

For users who register on this website (if this option exists), personal data that they provide in their user profile is also stored. All users can view, edit and delete their own personal data at any time (except for usernames). Site administrators can also view and edit this information.

Your rights regarding the information we hold about you

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request an export file containing the personal data we hold about you. This includes any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not include data that we are required to store for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where we send information about you

Visitor comments can be checked through an automatic recognition service against spam comments.
