How long we store your data
When you write a comment, it is stored indefinitely, including metadata. This way, we can automatically detect and approve follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users who register on our site, 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 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 information from us, including any data you have shared with us. In addition, you may request the deletion of any personal data we hold about you. This does not include data that we are required to retain due to administrative, legal or security needs.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments might be examined by an automated service for spam detection.
For privacy-related concerns, please contact:
Social media plugins are used on our websites. Via these plugins, information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service provider and possibly used by the latter. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin also triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by means of the social plugins or about their use. We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services is established and that at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The operator of the Google AdWords services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google.
If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across AdWords customers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
How we protect your data
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
