Who are we?
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 help detect spam.
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 may download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.
If you write a comment on our website, this may be a consent to store your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so you don’t have to re-enter all that data when you write another comment. 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 if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will set up some cookies to store your login information and display options. Login cookies expire after two days and cookies for display options after one year. If you select “Stay logged in” when you sign in, your registration will be maintained for two weeks. By logging out of your account, the login cookies will be deleted.
When you edit 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 article you have just edited. The cookie expires after one day.
Embedded content from other websites
Contributions to this website may contain embedded content (e.B. videos, images, contributions, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.
With whom we share your data
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we store your data when you write a comment will be stored indefinitely, including metadata. This allows us to automatically detect and share follow-up comments instead of keeping 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 username cannot be changed). Administrators of the website can also view and change this information.
What rights 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 any data you have provided to us. In addition, you can request the deletion of all personal data that we have stored about you. This does not include the data that we are required to retain due to administrative, legal or security-related necessities.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments could be investigated by an automated spam detection service.
