I am a person who cares about privacy. That’s why I want to inform you about which kind of data is processed and why this is done when you visit my site. This processing exclusively takes place on the basis of legal regulations (GDPR, TCA 2003).

Cookies for comments

Cookies are small files stored on your device by your web browser. They can contain data generated by a website which may be related to your device or yourself.

If you create comments in my blog posts cookies are stored on your device. This is done for the purpose of providing comment editing and deleting functionality. Cookies for a short time identify you as creator of comments. This allows you to edit or delete comments for a period of 15 minutes after comment creation. Cookies expire after this period and are then automatically deleted by your web browser.

You by yourself can influence how cookies are stored on your device by configuring your web browser. Common browsers can limit or fully prevent the storage of cookies. However, I point out that if your browser blocks the storage of cookies, you won’t be able to delete or edit comments by yourself after you have created them.

Your rights

You as user of this site have the right to receive the data that is stored about you free of charge upon request. Further, you have the right to request the correction of wrong data, as well as blocking and deletion of data stored about you, as far as no legal storage obligation contradicts with this. Contact me by writing me a mail if you have any concerns regarding this.
