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.

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


Plugins of the short message network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter) are integrated on our website. The Twitter plugins (tweet button) can be recognized by the Twitter logo on our site. An overview of tweet buttons can be found here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons). When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter “tweet button” while logged in to your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages to your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. We point out that we as the provider of the pages are not aware of the content of the transmitted data and their use by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter account.

Further information can be found in Twitter’s privacy policy (https://twitter.com/privacy).


Our website also uses so-called “social plugins” (“plugins”) provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. (“YouTube”). The plugins are marked with a YouTube logo, for example in the form of a “YouTube camera”.

When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to the servers of YouTube. The content of the plugin is transmitted by YouTube directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, YouTube receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a YouTube profile or are currently not logged in to YouTube.

This information (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to a YouTube server in the US and stored there. If you are logged in to YouTube, YouTube can immediately associate your visit to our website with your YouTube account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “YouTube” button, this information will also be sent directly to a server on YouTube and stored there. The information will also be posted on your YouTube account and displayed there to your contacts.

If you do not want YouTube to directly associate the data collected through our website with your YouTube account, you must log out of YouTube prior to visiting our website. Further information can be found in YouTube’s privacy policy (https://www.youtube.de/t/privacy).

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

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.
