An anonymous string created from your email address (also called hash) can be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approving your comment, your profile photo is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with built-in location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract all location data from the website images.

If you leave a comment on our site, you can choose to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your contact information again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for a year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set several cookies to record your login information and display choices on the screen. Login cookies last two days and screen option cookies last one year. If you select “Remember me”, your connection will be maintained for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be deleted.

If you modify or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and simply indicates the identifier of the item you have just modified. It expires after 1 day.

Integrated content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e. g. videos, images, articles, etc.). The integrated content of other websites behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor had visited the other website.

How long do we keep your data?

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This is how we can automatically recognize and approve follow-up comments instead of putting them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if applicable), we also retain the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (unless they cannot change their username). Web site administrators can also view and modify this information.

Further information

How we protect your data

Your personal data such as contact information is stored in secure virtual spaces. However, all the data you post publicly as well as the comments are public.

What procedures do we have in place for data breaches?

Our security standards are high, especially with the use of SSL. But since security is never 100% certain, it is possible that some of the information we store or third parties store may be obtained illegally. If such a situation should occur, we will inform you but we accept no responsibility.

Who are the third parties to whom we transmit data?

We do not share your data with third party companies. However, some of our services such as the contact form or the display of advertisements use Google services. And our hosting is based in Switzerland and must comply with Swiss privacy laws.

What automated decision making and/or profiling do we do with user data?

We do not profile your data, however Google AdSense may use it to provide you with quality ads.
