What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We use WordPress as a blog tool.   By default, WordPress does not collect personal data about users and only collects the data that is displayed in the profile of a registered user. However, we use other plugins that may collect data. These plugins are listed below and describe what is collected.

Types of data in generalstrong,
– stock data (e.g., names, addresses).
– Contact details (e.g., e-mail, telephone numbers).
– Content data (e.g., text entries, photographs, videos).
– Usage data (e.g., websites visited, interest in content, access times).
– Meta/communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).


When visitors post comments on the site, we collect the information displayed in the comment form, the visitor’s IP address, and the user-agent string (which identifies the browser) to help identify spam.

An anonymous string (also called a hash) can be created from your email address and sent to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment is posted, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.


If you are a registered user and upload photos to this site, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this site could download photos stored on this site and extract their location information.

Contact forms

We use Mailpoet newsletter as contact form. You can find more information on this below in the section MailPoet newsletter and e-mail.


When you write a comment on our website, this may be a consent to store your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. This is a convenience feature so that if you write another comment, you don’t have to re-enter all this data again. These cookies are stored for one year.

If you have an account and log on to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no 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 display options. Login cookies expire after two days and display option cookies after one year. If you select “Keep me logged in” when you register, your registration will be maintained for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are deleted.

Embedded content from other websites

Contributions on this website may contain embedded content (e.g.  B. videos, pictures, articles etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.

These sites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking services, and record your interaction with that embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged on to that site.

Analysis services

Services that we use are:

  • Google analytics
  • Yoast SEO

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses Cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our website by users, to compile reports on the activities within this website and to provide us with further services associated with the use of this website and the Internet. Pseudonymous user profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by making appropriate settings in their browser software; users can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options, you can find in the privacy policy of Google (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) as well as in the settings for the display of advertising by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

The personal data of users will be deleted or made anonymous after 14 months.

You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your information when you visit this site:

<a onclick=“alert(‚Google Analytics was deactivated‘);“ href=“javascript:gaOptout()“>Google Analytics deactivated</a>

Who we share your information with

If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transfer it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only take place on the basis of a legal authorisation (e.g. if a transfer of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers, is required in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b DSGVO in order to fulfil the contract), if you have consented, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “contract processing agreement”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO.

How long we store your data

If you write a comment, it will be saved indefinitely, including metadata. This way we can automatically detect and release 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 user name cannot be changed). Website administrators can also view and modify this information.

What rights you have to your data

If you have an account on this website or have written comments, you can request an export of your personal data from us, including all the data you have given us. Furthermore, you can request the deletion of all personal data that we have stored about you. This does not include the data that we have to store due to administrative, legal or security requirements.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments could be examined by an automated spam detection service.

We collect information about visitors who leave comments on websites that use our Akismet Anti-Spam Service. The amount of information we collect depends on how the user has set up their website.

Amazon Partner Program

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO), we are participants in the Amazon EU partner programme, which was designed to provide a medium for websites, by means of which advertising costs can be earned by placing advertisements and links to Amazon.de (so-called affiliate system). This means that as an Amazon partner we earn on qualified purchases.

Amazon uses cookies to trace the origin of the orders. Among other things, Amazon may recognize that you clicked the partner link on this site and then purchased a product from Amazon.
