What personal data we collect and why we collect it.
When visitors post comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and user agent string (this 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 may download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.
Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to analyse website usage. The data obtained from this is used to optimise our website as well as advertising measures.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States). Google processes website usage data on our behalf and is contractually obligated to take measures to ensure the confidentiality of the processed data.
During your visit to the website, the following data is recorded, among others:
- Pages viewed
- Orders incl. the turnover and the products ordered
- The achievement of “website goals” (e.g. contact requests and newsletter sign-ups)
- Your behaviour on the pages (for example, clicks, scrolling behaviour and dwell time)
- Your approximate location (country and city)
- Your IP address (in anonymised form, so that no clear allocation is possible)
- Technical information such as browser, internet provider, terminal device and screen resolution
- Source of origin of your visit (i.e. via which website or advertising material you came to us)
This data is transferred to a Google server in the USA. Google observes the data protection provisions of the “EU-US Privacy Shield” agreement.
Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years since your last visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID with which you can be recognised on future website visits.
The recorded data is stored together with the randomly generated user ID, which enables the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. This user-related data is automatically deleted after 14 months. Other data remains stored in aggregated form indefinitely.
When you post a comment on our website, this may constitute consent to store your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that you do not have to re-enter all this information when you post another comment. These cookies are stored for one year.
If you have an account and 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 log in, we will set some cookies to store your login information and viewing options. Login cookies expire after two days and display option cookies expire after one year. If you select “Stay signed in” when you sign up, your sign-in will be maintained for a fortnight. When you log out of your account, the login 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 have 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.
Who we share your data with
How long we store your data
When you post a comment, it is saved indefinitely, including metadata. This allows us to automatically detect and approve follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our website, 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 change this information.
What rights you have to your information
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 information you have provided to us. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we hold about you. This does not include data that we need to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be examined by an automated spam detection service.
