Collection of general information

When accessing this web site, non-personal identification information about users will be collected automatically. Non-personal identification information may include the browser your are using, the type of computer and means of connection to my Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service provider utilized, and other similar information. This information will not allow me or anyone to draw any conclusions about your person. This information is technically required to correctly deliver the requested web site contents and is mandatory for using the internet.


When visitors write comments on this web site, we collect the data that is shown in the comment form, as well as the IP address of the visitor and the user agent string (this identifies the browser), to enable 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.

Contact Form

If you get in touch with me via email or contact form, the data you provide will be stored for the purpose of answering your request as well as for possible follow-up communication.


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.

Posts on this web site may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, posts, etc.). Embedded content from other web sites behaves exactly as if the visitor would visit the respective web site directly.

These web sites can collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking services and trace your interactions with this embedded content, including your further interactions with the embedded content if you have an account on this web site and are logged in.

This includes for instance embedded YouTube videos. Further information about YouTube’s privacy policy can be found on the provider’s homepage at

How long we store 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..
