Privacy Policy

Don't panic 🙂 This is my private, non-commerical, hobbyist blog.

I follow the hacker ethics [1] [2] and do not collect any data about my users except functional required ones (because why the hell should I?).
If you comment, I collect your IP-address for spam protection purposes and your comment will be scanned by CleanTalk for Spam detection purposes only. I won't be able to track you because I am not an ISP.

I am not, and will never sell or share any informations of the blog with a third party.

And now the boring long privacy statement coming from WordPress because I feel the peer pressure to release it so.

Who I am

My website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

For technical debugging and spam protection reasons, I log and collect the IP address, browser identification and requested links of very HTTP request. This data will not be used for any other purpose than: maintenance of the webserver (debugging reasons), anonymous usage statistics for myself (where the IP addresses will be masked so that no individual person can be tracked).
Again: I do follow the Hacker ethics, this data is collected automatically by the webserver and won't neither be sold nor used against you ever.


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

Since you as user anyways should not have access to this feature, you are not affected.

If you leave a comment on our 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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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. I try to avoid contents from other websites, but sometimes I cannot avoid it (OpenStreetMap tiles).

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

If you have not done it before, you really should disable third-party cookies and install a tracking blocker.


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 for the purpose of spam detection only.
