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.


 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.


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.


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


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 (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.


If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported 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.


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


We use Google Analytics – a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by cookies on how the user accesses the information provided online is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate how users access the information we provide online, compile reports on website activities and provide the website operator with other services connected to the use of this website and the use of the internet. Masked (pseudonymous) user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP masking enabled. This means that Google will shorten the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in another state that is party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent cookies being stored by modifying a corresponding setting in their browser. Users may also prevent Google from capturing data generated by the cookie relating to their use of the website and from processing such data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through the following link:

For further information regarding Google’s use of data for advertising purposes, preferences and opt-out options, please visit the following Google websites: (“how Google uses information from sites or apps of our partners”), (data use for advertising purposes), (“manage which information Google uses to show you advertising”) and (“determine which advertising Google shows you”).


Our website uses the plug-ins of the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc. 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
A connection to the Vimeo servers is established each time you visit one of our pages that has a Vimeo plug-in. The Vimeo server will know which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This happens even if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.
If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
