What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors post comments on the website, we collect the information displayed in the comment form, the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (which identifies the browser) to help us detect spam.

From your email address an anonymised string of characters can be created (also called a hash) and passed to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. You can find the Gravatar service’s privacy policy here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

Media

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.

Cookies

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 that you do not have to re-enter all this information when you write another comment. These cookies will be stored for one year.

If you have an account and log on 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 is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set some cookies to store your login information and display options. Login cookies expire after two days and display option cookies expire after one year. If you select “Stay signed in” when you sign in, your sign-in will be maintained for a fortnight. When you log 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 contribution ID of the article you have just edited. The cookie expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

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 data

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 queue them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information that 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). Website administrators can also view and change this information.

What rights do you have on 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 the data you have given us. 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 for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments could be examined by an automated spam detection service.
