Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Contact requests

If you contact us via the contact form or email, the data you provide will be used to process your request. Providing the data is necessary for processing and answering your inquiry – without providing it, we cannot answer your inquiry at all or only to a limited extent.

The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) GDPR.

Your data will be deleted if your request has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements, such as in the case of any subsequent contract processing.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Mailchimp Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested from you, i.e. your e-mail address and – optionally – your name and address will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we save the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. As part of the further registration process, we will obtain your consent to the sending of the newsletter, describe the content specifically and refer you to this data protection declaration. We use the data collected in this way exclusively for sending the newsletter – it is therefore in particular not passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

You can revoke your consent to the newsletter dispatch at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”) https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active Google guarantees that the data protection regulations of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. With this function, Google already shortens the IP address within the EU or the EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it does not associate your IP address with other data. In addition, Google entertains https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners

Further data protection information is available for you, e.g. also on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

In addition, Google offers under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de a so-called deactivation add-on along with further information on this. This add-on can be installed with the most common Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) that information about the visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services. You can of course also find out whether and which other web analysis services we use in this data protection declaration.

Google Maps

We use Google Maps on our website to show our location and to create directions. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”) https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active Google guarantees that the data protection regulations of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.

In order to enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed.

If you call up the Google Maps component integrated into our website, Google will store a cookie on your device via your Internet browser. Your user settings and data are processed in order to display our location and create a route description. We cannot rule out that Google uses servers in the USA.

The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in optimizing the functionality of our website.

Through the connection to Google established in this way, Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the directions are to be sent.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. You can find details on this under “Cookies” above.

In addition, the use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps takes place according to the Google Terms of Service / https://policies.google.com/terms?gl=DE&hl=de and the Google Maps Terms and Conditions / https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

In addition, Google offers under https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated / https://policies.google.com/privacy further information.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google reCAPTCHA on our website to check and avoid interactions on our website through automated access, e.g. through so-called bots. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”) https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active Google guarantees that the data protection regulations of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.

This service enables Google to determine from which website a request is being sent and from which IP address you are using the so-called reCAPTCHA input box. In addition to your IP address, Google may also collect other information that is necessary to offer and guarantee this service.

The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our website and in preventing unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar.

Google offers under https://policies.google.com/privacy further information on the general handling of your user data.

Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts to display external fonts on our website. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”) https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active Google guarantees that the data protection regulations of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.

In order to enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed.

The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and economic operation of our website.

By connecting to Google when you visit our website, Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the display of the font is to be sent.

Google offers under https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated / https://policies.google.com/privacy further information, in particular on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

YouTube

We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal operated by YouTube LLC., 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”.

Through certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”) https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active guarantees Google and thus also the subsidiary YouTube that the data protection regulations of the EU are also observed when processing data in the USA.

We use YouTube in connection with the “extended data protection mode” function to be able to show you videos. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the “extended data protection mode” function ensures that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server if you actually start a video.

Without this “extended data protection” a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you access one of our websites on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will record and process at least your IP address, the date and time and the website you have visited. In addition, a connection to Google’s „DoubleClick“ advertising network is established.

If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube assigns the connection information to your YouTube account. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.

For the purpose of functionality and to analyze usage behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies via your Internet browser on your end device. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the storage of cookies by making a setting in your Internet browser. See “Cookies” above for more information.

The Jetpack – WordPress Stats service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

To analyze user behavior, Jetpack – WordPress Stats stores cookies on your end device via your internet browser.

During processing, your IP address, the website(s) of our website that you visit, the website from which you switched to our website (referrer URL), the length of time you spent on our website and the frequency with which one of our websites was accessed websites recorded. The data collected is stored on an Automattic server in the USA. However, your IP address will be anonymized immediately after processing and before it is stored.

If you are logged into Facebook while you are visiting one of our websites with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in from your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the so-called “Like” button on Facebook, this information will be stored in your Facebook user account and, if necessary, published on the Facebook platform. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or use an add-on for your Internet browser to prevent the Facebook plug-in from being blocked from loading.
