What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors post comments on the website, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, the visitor’s IP address and the user agent string (which identifies the browser) to help detect spam.

An anonymised character string (also known as a hash) can be created from your email address and sent to the Gravatar service to check whether you are using it. You can find the Gravatar service’s privacy policy here: After your comment has been approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.


If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Visitors to this website could download photos stored on this website and extract their location information.

Who we share your data with
User data and order information are not shared with others. Account and payment information is managed and processed directly by the respective payment services (Paypal, Stripe, Sofort).

How long we store your data
When you write a comment, it is stored indefinitely, including metadata. This allows us to automatically recognise and approve follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can view, change or delete their personal information at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Website administrators can also view and change this information.

How we protect your data

All pages are accessed via encrypted connections. Therefore, both data on rest and on transfer are encrypted. Payment is always made directly to established payment systems (Stripe, Paypal, Sofort, etc.) so that we have nothing to do with the direct payment processing and therefore do not store any credit card data or similar on our pages.
