Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
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.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. articles, tweets, videos, images, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
The WordPress plugin WP Statistics runs on our website. It collects data about accesses to the page and saves them locally in the WordPress system. The following data is logged in this way: Visited website, visited subpages, time at which the page was accessed, source / link from which you reached the page, your browser type and version, your operating system, your IP address, your presumed region. The data collected is used only for statistical purposes and to improve the website. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check and track the server log data if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
