Additionally, you can enter certain personal data, such as your name and email address, in the contact and comment forms to be able to use certain services of this website. You give those information voluntarily. However, without those information, it is not possible to fully use all functions of the services provided.
Your personal data is being used for the following purposes:

Legal basis for the processing
Your personal data is being collected and used on the basis of predominantly legitimate interests according to art 6 para.1 lit f GDPR (EU), which includes making this website user-friendly.
Collection of personal data and its use
This website collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. The current anti-spam service is operated by Automattic Inc. (Akismet Anti-Spam), a US plug-in provider. I do not have any influence nor access to the data sent to and stored by Automattic Inc.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so that WordPress can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
The contact form of this website stores your name, email address and IP address, which is used to get back to your contact request. All those information are deleted as soon as your contact request is fulfilled.
Additionally, the contents from the contact forms are being checked through the automated spam detection service provided by Automattic Inc. (Akismet Anti-Spam).
If you leave a comment on this 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.
Embedded content from other websites
The information of your website usage are being stored in such a Cookie (including your IP address and the URLs of the site’s visited here as well as the website you come from) and are being transferred to a server of WordPress in the US. I do not store any of your data that is being collected in connection with WordPress stats.
This website uses Social Media plug-ins to allow other users to share, commend or like content on social networks such as Facebook and Pinterest. Generally, those plug-ins already set a Cookie as soon as you visit this website. I do not have any influence nor access to the Cookies that are set by Facebook, Pinterest, etc.
If you subscribe to the website (Follow posts via Mail) your email address is being collected and stored by WordPress and SpecificFeeds. Each time you receive a follow-up post, you have the possibility to unsubscribe which automatically deletes your email address from those providers.

What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
