What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors post comments on the site, 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 might download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.
When you write a comment on our website, this can be a consent to store your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that when you write another comment, you do not have to enter all this data again. These cookies are stored for one year.
If you have an account and you 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 sign up, we will set up some cookies to store your login information and viewing options. Login cookies expire after two days and display options cookies expire after one year. If you select “Stay logged in” when you sign up, your login will be maintained for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the sign-in cookies are 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 just edited. The cookie expires after one day.
Embedded content from other websites
Posts on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.
How long we store your data
When you post a comment, it is saved indefinitely, including metadata. This way, we can automatically detect and approve follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website, we additionally 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 modify this information.
What rights you have to your data
If you have an account on this website or have posted comments, you may 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 data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security needs.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments could be examined by an automated service for spam detection.
