What personal data we collect and why we collect it

In principle, we do not collect any personal information for visitors and for registered users, besides the obligatory email address, we only collect data that they voluntarily fill in on their profile page for easier contacting (eg. telephone, Skype or social profile links).


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. The IP address is stored in an anonymized form, which makes it impossible to uniquely identify the visitor and contributes to overall privacy protection. All information provided (especially email address) is used only to manage comments on the site and for no other purpose.

We use Akismet to reduce spam and we share following information with the service: IP address, user agent, referrer, and page URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself). See the Akismet Privacy Policy for more information.

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. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. See the Gravatar Privacy Policy for more information.

When a user account is linked to a profile on the social network, a social profile picture (if available) is used.


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.

A similar warning applies to attachments in the form of a PDF and Word document, which may contain personal data of different nature, and not only in the text itself. The responsibility for the disclosure of such information falls on the author of the document (if known).

Contact forms

No personal or other information that the visitor enters into the contact form is recorded or stored anywhere, and the email address provided is used only for the purpose of replying from the contacted person or organization.

Contact forms are protected against spam abuse by reCAPTCHA. For more information, see the Google Privacy Policy.

Other forms

Embedded forms from other sites or services (such as Google Forms) may appear in published posts. The scope of collected data and their processing is governed by the privacy policy of the service used. (Google Privacy Policy)
