What personal data we collect and why we collect it

 

Comments

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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

 

Media

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.

 

Contact forms

We use MailChimp to send newsletters, and we use MailChimp services to record newsletter signup on our website.

 

General Information about MailChimp

Rocket Science Group LLC (MailChimp), LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA, maintains online platforms that enable their users to stay in touch with their subscribers, primarily via email. They allow users e-mail addresses, and other subscriber profile information, such as: Name, physical address, and other demographic information to upload to the MailChimp database. This information is used to send emails and allow the use of certain other MailChimp features by these users. In accordance with the published Privacy Policy, MailChimp shares some information with third parties to provide and support the services that MailChimp provides to its users. MailChimp also shares some information with third party advertisers to better understand users’ needs and interests so that more relevant content and targeted advertising can be provided.

 

Newsletter Subscription 

When you sign up for our newsletter on our website, the data entered will be stored by MailChimp.

 

Deletion of your Data

You can withdraw your consent to receive our newsletter at any time by clicking the link at the bottom the email. If you unsubscribe by clicking the link, your data will be deleted from MailChimp.

 

Newsletter Evaluation

When you receive a newsletter via MailChimp, information such as IP address, browser type and e-mail program are stored to give us information about the performance of our newsletter. MailChimp can use the images embedded in the HTML emails called “web beacons” (see https://kb.mailchimp.com/reports/about-open-tracking for details); MailChimp can tell whether the email arrived, whether it was opened, and whether links in it have been clicked. All this information is stored on the servers of MailChimp, not on this website.

 

MailChimp is an active participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data.

Pseudonymisation

Our concern in terms of GDPR is to improve our services and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized. The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal regulations of the §96 Para. 3 TKG (Telecommunications Act), and of Art. 6 EU-GDPR Para. 1(a) (Consent) and/or (f) (Legitimate Interest) of the GDPR.

 

Deactivation of Data Collection by Google Analytics

Website users can prevent Google Analytics from using their data with the browser add-ons for the deactivation of Google Analytics-JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js).

You can prevent Google from collecting the cookie-generated data relating to your use of the website and from processing these data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

 

Google Analytics Data Processing Addendum

We have concluded a direct-client agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics by accepting the ‘Data Processing Addendum’ in Google Analytics.

For more information on the Data Processing Addendum for Google Analytics, visit: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=en&utm_id=ad.

 

Google Analytics IP Anonymisation

We have implemented Google Analytics IP address anonymisation on this website. This feature has been developed by Google to enable websites to comply with applicable privacy practices and recommendations of local data protection authorities when they prohibit storage of the full IP address. The anonymisation or masking of the IP takes place as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is stored or processed.

For more information on IP anonymisation, visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en.

 

Google Analytics Deactivation Link

By clicking on the deactivation link below, you can prevent Google from logging further visits to this website. Attention: The deletion of cookies, the use of the incognito / private mode of your browser, or the use of another browser results in the collection of data again.

Who we share your data with

 

 

How long we retain 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.

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.

 

What rights you have over your data

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.

 

Where we send your data

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