What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Let’s dive right in. The hottest topic: What data do we actually collect.

Contact forms

When you submit a message via a contact form or send us an email, your data/email will only be stored until your request is answered. Once answered/finished, the whole contact goes into the trash bin.


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. IP-addresses and email addresses will not be made public. Name and comment (message) will be shown on the website publicly.

We do not use Gravatar to preserve your privacy.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in the 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.

Embedded content from other websites

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.
