Last update of this Notice: 20th of January 2024

Revocation of your consent for data processing

Some data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. A simple email notification is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected.

Right to lodge a complaint with the responsible authorities

In the event of a breach of data protection regulations, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible authorites. The responsible authority for data protection issues on this site is the Bavarian State Commissioner for Data Protection. The following link provides a list of data protection officers along with their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html. I am only aware of the european / german regulations, other countries requirements are nto recognized.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data, that I automatically process in fullfillment of a contract or based on your consent, provided to you or third parties on your behalf. Data will be provided in a machine-readable format. Transfer will only go to the extent that is technically feasable.

Right to Information, Rectification, Blocking, Deletion

You have the right, at any time and in accordance with applicable legal provisions, to free information about your stored personal data, its origin, recipients, and the purpose of data processing, and, if applicable, a right to rectification, blocking, or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact me at any time using the contact options provided in the site notice.

SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to me as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the “https://” address line of your browser and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

Server Log Files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Page visited on my domain
  • Date and time of the server request
  • Type of browser and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

To Track Site Visits and Usage I use WP-Statistics – this means the Information is Anonymized and Aggregated to provide general statistics – no personal Data ist stored or transmitted to third Party Services.


When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

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 privacy policy for the Gravatar service can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

The storage of comments and posts is based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR).

Links to Other Websites

If you click on a link to an external website, you will leave this page. As a result, I am not responsible for the content, services, or products available on the linked website. Likewise, I am not responsible for privacy or technical security on the linked website. This is particularly important if you share any of my content through social media links.


If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


When you leave a comment on my website, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, a temporary cookie is set 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 also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one day.

Cookies, which are necessary for carrying out the electronic communication process or for providing certain functions you wish to use, are stored pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, my hoster and me have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services. If other cookies (e.g., for analysis functions) are also used, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Posts 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.

Shared Data

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Data retention

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.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
