What personal data we collect and why we collect it

comments

When visitors write comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form and also the visitor’s IP address and browser’s user agent string to help detect spam.

An anonymous string created from your email address (also called a hash) can be delivered to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approving your comment, your profile picture will be visible to the public along with your comment.

Media

If you upload photos to the site, you should not upload images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Site visitors can download and extract all site data from images on the site.

Who we share your data with

Absolutely no one!

How long we save your data

If you write a comment, comments and its metadata will be preserved indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comment automatically instead of having them in a moderation queue.

For users who create on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide for their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception that they cannot change their username). The site’s administrators can also view and edit that information.

For users who buy goods through the webshop we are legally bound to keep a copy of the transaction details – a copy of the invoice – for a period of five (5) years.

You can also request that we delete any personal data we have about you. This does not include any kind of data that we are obliged to store for administrative, legal or security reasons.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be controlled by an automatic spam recognition service. If the comment is checked, WordPress plugin Akismet is used.
