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 anonymised 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.

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

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are 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 visit our login page, 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 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 1 day.

We use Google analytics to record information about the pages a user has seen, for example the URL of the page, time of day, device used, etc. The information that we collect anonymized and sent to Google Analytics for analysis. Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions on this website. Users may disable cookies or delete any individual cookie. In addition, Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that – once installed and enabled – disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site a user visits. Note that this add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement. Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service, and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”). See this page for Google Analytics security and usage of data:

Embedded content from other websites
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.

Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

Purpose of the Blog

This website serves the purpose of information. 

Liability Exclusion:

1. Contents:

The author, webmaster and/or domain owner does not guarantee or take responsibility for the correctness, or completion or quality of the presented information. Liability claims against the webmaster, author and/or domain owner, which refer to damage of material and/or ideational kind, which happened through usage or non-usage of the presented information or through usage or non-usage of partial or incomplete information from this website, are basically excluded, unless proof can be given that the author, webmaster and/or domain owner have acted intentionally and/or grossly negligent. The author, webmaster and/or domain owner reserves the right to add, to delete, or to close the publication occasionally or durably.

2. References and Links:

Concerning references and links to other Internet websites, which are outside the responsibility of the author, webmaster and /or domain owner, a liability would only then become relevant, when the author knows the contents and it is technically possible and reasonable for him, to change the usage of the links in case of illegal contents. Therefore, the author, webmaster and/or domain owner declares explicitly, that by the time, the links were put, the linked sites were free of illegal content.
The author, webmaster and/or domain owner has has no influence on the present or future design or content of the linked sites or changes that are being made after putting the link. This ascertainment goes for all references and links on and also for all foreign entries or texts made in guestbooks, email lists or contact forms, presented by the author, webmaster and/or domain owner. For illegal or incomplete content and especially for damage done through the usage or non usage of such content, only the author, webmaster and or domain owner of the linked site is to be taken responsible, not the author, webmaster and /or domain owner of the site that put the link.

3. Copy and labeliing right

The copyright for all self made texts, graphics, pictures and/or video-/sound documents stays with the author, webmaster and/or domain owner. Any publication of any of that is only allowed with the written permission of the author, webmaster and/or domain owner.
The author, webmaster and/or domain owner is putting all effort, to consider copyrights in all published graphics, pictures, texts, video and/or sound documents. He uses self made or license free graphics, pictures, texts, video and/or sound documents. All within the Internet named or published labels are still untouched in their labelling rights and rights of possession from the officially signed owner. Only mentioning a name, brand or label, does not indicate that this may not be protected through a third party.

4. Legal effectiveness of this liability exclusion:

This liability exclusion is to be seen as part of the Internet offer, from which this website is published. In case parts of this text or singular formulations may bot match the current legal situation, all other parts stay untouched and valid.
