What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you access this website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information is recorded in the server log file and includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, your IP address and similar.

This is for the following reason:
  - To ensure a problem-free connection of the website
  - Ensuring the smooth use of our website
  - Evaluation of system security and stability and for other administrative purposes

Your data will not be used to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is only evaluated statistically in order to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Storage period

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of the collection. This is generally the case for the data used to provide the website, when the respective session has ended.

Comments

When visitors post comments on the website, 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 detecting spam.

An anonymous string of characters (also called a hash) can be created from your e-mail address and passed to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using it. The Gravatar service's privacy policy can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

The data you enter will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. For this purpose, it is necessary to enter a valid e-mail address and your name. This is used to assign the enquiry and to subsequently answer it. The specification of further data is optional.

Cookies

If you write a comment on our website, this may be an agreement 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.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use "Google Web Fonts" from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google") to display fonts on this website.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Embedded content from other websites

Contributions on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, 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 this website.

How long we store your information

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 having to keep 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). Administrators of the website can also view and change this information.

What rights do you have to your 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 are required to keep due to administrative, legal or security requirements.
