Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors write comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (which identifies the browser) to support spam detection.
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.
If you write a comment on our website, it may be a consent to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that when you write another comment, you don’t have to re-enter all this data. These cookies are stored for one year.
If you have an account and log in to this website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and will be discarded when you close your browser.
When you sign in, we will set up some cookies to store your credentials and display options. Login cookies expire after two days and cookies for display options expire after one year. If you select “Stay logged in” when signing up, your registration will be maintained for two weeks. By logging out of your account, the login cookies will be deleted.
When you review or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only refers to the post ID of the item you have just edited. The cookie expires after one day.
Embedded content from other websites
Posts on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, posts, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
How long we store your data
When you write a comment, it is stored indefinitely, including metadata. This allows us to automatically detect and share follow-up comments 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, modify or delete their personal information at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Administrators of the site can also view and modify this information.
What rights do you have to your data
If you have an account on this website or have written comments, you may request an export of your personal data from us, including any information you have provided to us. In addition, you may request the deletion of all personal data that we have stored from you. This does not include the data that we need to retain due to administrative, legal or security needs.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments could be investigated by an automated spam detection service.
