Use of personal data collected


When you leave a comment on our website, the data entered in the comment form, your IP address and your browser’s user agent are collected to help us detect unwanted comments.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using the service. The Gravatar Service Privacy Policy is available here: After validating your comment, your profile picture will be publicly visible next to your comment.


If you are a registered user and you upload images to the website, we advise you to avoid uploading images containing EXIF GPS coordinates. Visitors to your website can download and extract location data from these images.

Contact forms:

When you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details, including the contact data you provide, are stored with us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of queries arising therefrom. We do not otherwise pass on this data without your consent. The data entered in our forms is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 let. a of the GDR). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do so, all you have to do is send us an informal message by e-mail. The legitimacy of the data processing procedures that took place prior to the revocation is not affected by the revocation. The data that you have entered on the forms will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or until the purpose of the data storage is no longer necessary (e.g. after the final processing of your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular with regard to storage periods – remain unaffected by this.


If you leave a comment on our website, you will be offered to save your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. This is only for your convenience so that you do not have to enter this information if you make another comment later. These cookies expire after one year.

If you go to the login page, a temporary cookie will be created to determine whether your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain any personal data and will be deleted automatically when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set a number of cookies to save your login information and screen preferences. The lifetime of a login cookie is two days, that of a screen option cookie is one year. If you check “Remember me”, your login cookie will be stored for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookie will be deleted.

When editing or posting a publication, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data. It simply shows the ID of the publication you have just modified. It expires after one day.

Embedded content from other sites:

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles…). Content embedded from other sites behaves in the same way as if the visitor went to this other site.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking tools, track your interactions with such embedded content if you have an account connected to their website.

Statistics and audience measurement
Use and transmission of your personal data
How long do you store your data for?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This makes it possible to automatically recognize and approve subsequent comments instead of leaving them in the moderation queue.

For users who register on our site (if possible), we also store the personal data indicated in their profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except for their user-ice name). The site managers can also view and modify this information.

The rights you have over your data:

If you have an account or if you have left comments on the site, you can request to receive a file containing all the personal data we hold about you, including the data you have provided us with. You may also request the deletion of your personal data. This does not include data stored for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Transmission of your personal data:

Visitors’ comments can be verified using an automated service for detecting unwanted comments.
