What personal data we collect and why we collect them


When visitors post comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, including the visitor’s IP address and the User-Agent string (used to identify the browser), to help detect spam.

An anonymised character string (also known as a hash) may be created from your e-mail address and transferred to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. You can find the Privacy Policy for the Gravatar service here: Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.


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 website could download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.

Contact forms Cookies

If you post a comment on our website, that can constitute consent to store your name, e-mail address and web address in cookies. This is a convenience feature to avoid you having to re-enter those same data when you post another comment. These cookies are stored for one year.

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

When you sign in, we will set some cookies in order to store your sign-in information and display options. Sign-in cookies expire after two days, and cookies used for setting display options expire after one year. If you select “stay signed in” when you sign in, you will remain signed in for two weeks. When you sign out of your account, the sign-in cookies are deleted.

When you edit or create a posting, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only refers to the article ID of the item you have just edited. The cookie expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

Postings on this website may have embedded content (e.g. videos, images, text, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

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

Who we share your data with

How long we store your data

When you post a comment, it is stored for an indefinite time, including metadata. This allows us to detect and approve follow-up comments automatically, instead of holding 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, make changes to or delete their personal information at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Administrators of the website can also view and make changes to this information.

What rights you have to your data

If you have an account on this website or you have posted comments, you may request that we export your personal data, including all data you have provided to us. In addition, you may request the erasure of all personal data that we have stored about you. This does not include data that we must keep for reasons of administrative, legal or security requirements.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be examined by an automatic spam detection service.
