Cookies

Cookies are a standard Internet technology that is able to collect visitors’ data during Internet surfing. Those are the things such as the web browser type, IP address, and operating system. They are also used for session management and for personalization (e.g. shopping cart features). This is useful for potential infringement acts, as well as for Website functionality, administration, billing and support purposes. You still may switch cookies off within your browser, however doing so may prevent the use of certain functions e.g. shopping carts, signup systems, placing comments, etc. Our Website stores only cookies collected by default from our Website’s content management system (WordPress). Those cookies mostly affect users with logging privileges. The purpose of this is functionality and user experience improvement. For Analytics we switched to Matomo Analytics from Google Analytics. Matomo Analytics is privacy-respective. Still, we do get information about the visitor’s country location and usage environments such as operating system and browser. If you have a problem with that, you should stop visiting our site. In the future, if we switch back to Google Analytics or any other 3rd party analytics we’ll update this page with running info. We oblige that we’ll not jeopardize or transfer those data to any marketing or any other 3rd party company.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service. If you’re using Gravatar, it will provide your profile picture along with the comment. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here.
