Privacy Policy

When a visitor leaves a comment on the website, we gather the information provided in the comments form, along with their IP address and browser user agent string to aid in identifying spam.

Furthermore, an anonymous hash, generated from the visitor’s email address, may be sent to the Gravatar service to determine if they are using it. You can find the Gravatar service Privacy Policy at Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be displayed publicly in conjunction with your comment.


When uploading images to the website, it is recommended to refrain from including embedded location data (EXIF GPS) in the images. This is because visitors to the website can extract and download any location data from the images available on the website.


When you leave a comment on our site, you have the option to save your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is done for your convenience so that you don’t have to fill in your details again when leaving another comment. The duration of these cookies is one year.

When you visit our blog, a temporary cookie is set to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

If you edit or publish an article, a cookie is saved in your browser that indicates the post ID of the edited article. This cookie does not contain any personal data and expires after one day.

Embedded content from other websites

This site may contain articles with embedded content such as images, videos, and articles from other websites. When a visitor interacts with this embedded content, it behaves in the same way as if they were visiting the original website.

How long we retain your data

When a comment is left on this site, both the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. The reason for this is to enable us to automatically identify and approve any follow-up comments rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights do you have over your data?

If you possess an account on this site or have previously left comments, you may ask for an exported file of the personal information we possess about you, which includes any information you provided us. Furthermore, you have the authority to request that we remove any personal information we have about you. However, this does not comprise any information we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

An automated spam detection service may be used to check visitor comments.
