Privacy Policy

Use of personal data collected


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

An anonymised string created from your email address (also known as a hash) can be sent to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using the service. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service is available here. After validation of 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 data of GPS coordinates. Visitors to your website can download and extract location data from these images.

Contact form

The "send" action just sends me an e-mail with the contents of the fields you've filled in: name, message and e-mail. I'll use this data for one thing only: to reply to you, and your e-mails will remain stored on theIONOS servers, for an indefinite period (I'll purge them from time to time or at your request).


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

Embedded content from other sites

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

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking tools, track your interactions with these embedded contents if you have a logged-in account on their website.
