Handling of personal data

Personal data is information that helps to individualize a person. This information includes the name, email address and telephone number but also information like hobbies, memberships or webpages visited.

Inclusion of services and content of third parties

It may occur that content of third parties is included in our online content, i.e. videos from YouTube, maps from Google-Maps, RSS-Feeds or graphs from other websites. This means that the providers of these services (in the following “third party providers”) collect the IP-address of users to be able to send their content to the user’s browser. The IP-address is a necessity for the display of such content. We make every effort to only use the content of providers which use the collected IP-addresses exclusively for purposes of the delivery of content. However, we do not have any influence in case a third party provider collects the IP-address for other, e.g. statistical, purposes.


We use the Akismet anti-spam service, provided by Automattic, Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA in order to separate spam from regular user comments. Comment and/or contact-data will be sent to and processed by Akismet solely for this purpose. Akismet stores the data up to 4 days, in case the the comment is rated as spam the data will be stored longer. The stored data includes name, e-mail-address, IP-address, the text of the comment, the referrer, information about the used browser and computer systems and the time of the entry.

Akismet does not save the comment data permanently on its servers unless a comment was marked as false positive, in which case Akismet stores it long enough to use it to improve the service to avoid future false positives. You may use a pseudonym for name and e-mail address. You can prevent the transmission of data to the USA as a whole, if you do not use our comment system. That would be a pity, but unfortunately we see no other alternatives that works just as effectively.

For further information please refer to Akismet’s Privacy Policy.
