What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors post comments on the site, we collect the information displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user-agent string (which identifies the browser) to assist in spam detection.

Your e-mail address can be used to create an anonymous string (also called a hash) and send it to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment is shared, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Media

If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this site may download photos stored on this site and extract their location information.

Contact Forms

We collect data on persons, email addresses and their information requests. With the sending of the contact form the data is transmitted to us. The data is not stored on the server.

Cookies

When you write a comment on our website, this may be a consent to store your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that you do not have to re-enter all this information when you write another comment. These cookies are stored for one year.

If you have an account and log on to this website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal information and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set some cookies to store your login information and display options. Login cookies expire after two days and display option cookies expire after one year. If you select „Keep me logged in“ when you log in, your login will be maintained for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are deleted.

When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie contains no personal data and only refers to the article ID of the article you have just edited. The cookie expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Contributions on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, pictures, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These websites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking services, and record your interaction with that embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged on to that website.

Analysis Services

We do not use any analysis services outside this website.

With whom we share data

We store data for internal purposes only and do not share it with third parties, except for comments.

How long we store the data

If you write a comment, it will be saved including metadata for an unlimited time. This way we can automatically detect and release follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, change or delete their personal information at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Site administrators can also view and change this information.

What rights you have to the data

If you have an account on this website or have written comments, you can request an export of your personal data from us, including all data you have provided us with. In addition, you can request the deletion of all personal data that we have stored about you. This does not include data that we have to keep due to administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments could be examined by an automated spam detection service
