Privacy Policy

We respect the privacy of visitors to our website and ensure that the personal information (name, e-mail address, etc.) that you give us is treated confidentially. We adhere to the requirements of the Personal Data Protection Act.

Click behavior and visitor data

General visitor data is kept on the website. In this context, in particular the IP address of your computer, any user name, the time of retrieval and any data that a visitor's browser sends, can be registered and used for statistical analysis of visit and click behavior on the website. We use this information to make and keep the website interesting for as many people as possible.

The collected data is anonymized as much as possible. This information is not provided to third parties.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyze the search behavior of visitors. This information, including the address of your computer (IP address), is stored by Google on servers in the United States. Read the Google Privacy Policy for more information, as well as the specific Google Analytics Privacy Policy .

Google uses this information to keep track of how the website is used, to provide us with reports about the website and to provide its advertisers with information about the effectiveness of their campaigns. Google may make this information available to third parties if they are legally obliged to do so and insofar as the information is processed by third parties on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We do not allow Google to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.

Use of cookies

Some functions of our website use cookies. A cookie is a simple small file that is sent along with pages from this website and stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive. We use cookies to remember your settings and preferences. You can disable these cookies via your browser.

Cookies from Google are placed through our website as part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to keep track of and receive reports on how visitors use the website. As explained above, Google may provide this information to third parties under certain circumstances. We have no influence on this.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor's IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

All comments posted by you are indexed by search engines.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you have left comments or sent us a message via the contact form, you can request to receive a file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Changes to privacy statement

We reserve the right to change this privacy statement. Changes will be published on this website.
