Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:


When you write a comment on this website, the data you provide will automatically be collected. The website will also read your IP-address and the User-Agent-String (to identify your browser) as a safeguard against spam and bots.

A hash (anonymized string of symbols) will be created from your e-mail address and sent to Gravatar to verify if you are using that service. You can find Gravatar’s data privacy disclaimer here:

After your comment has been checked, it will be published and visible for everyone.


If you are uploading pictures to this website as a registered user, you should avoid uploading them from an EXIF-GPS-location. Users of this website can download pictures from this website to extract location information.


If you are using the comment function on this website, we will take that as consent to save the data you provided as cookies, e.g. name, e-mail-address and website. This is a function meant for comfort, so you don’t have to insert your data repeatedly if you want to write more comments. These cookies will be saved up to a year.

If you have an account and log into this website, we will add temporary cookies to check if your browser accepts cookies. This temporary cookie does not contain any personal data and will be deleted as soon as you close your browser.

If you log in, we will create a range of cookies to save your login data and display preferences. Login cookies expire after two days, and cookies for your display preferences after a year. If you activate the option „stay logged in“, your login data will expire after two weeks. If you logout of your account, the login-cookies will be deleted.

If you are writing, editing, or publishing an article, an additional cookie will be saved to your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only links to the article-ID that you are working on. This cookie expires after a day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website might contain embedded content (e.g. videos, pictures, texts, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor were to view that other website.

Those websites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party-trackers, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content.

Who we share your data with

If you join the newsletter, your e-mail address, and if provided, your first and last name, will be transfered to MailerLite, the newsletter provider. Your data will be saved for the purpose of personalizing the newsletter content („Dear XXX,…“). If you opt out of the newsletter, your data will be deleted as well.

How long we save your data

If you write a comment, it will be saved indefinitely, with all meta data added. This way we can identify and automatically approve future comments without having to add it to our moderation queue.

Your rights concerning your personal data

If you have an account or written comments on this website, you can request an export of all your personal data. Beyond that, you can request a deletion of your personal data that we have saved. This does not pertain to data we need due to administrative, legal, or security-relevant obligations.

Where your data gets sent

Visitor comments could be sent to an automatized service to check for spam.
