Privacy Policy


No data is sold to anyone and only needed data is stored (login information, IP addresses for security). The only analytic statistics that are created will be created by DreamHost and WordPress (Jetpack plugin) and will not be given to any third party.

Login is done using OAuth with a Patreon account. Because of that NO passwords are stored (except for admin accounts).

In cases where the German law is violated that content will be removed and the data might be handed to the German police. (Just use common sense and be nice and nothing will happen.)

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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.

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. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

Patreon Login

When you login using patreon (the only available option for users), you log in using patreons services. This website only stores the OAuth token given from the patreon API. This website neither knows nor stores ANY password (except for admin accounts). However all comments can be linked to your patreon account and you can be held accountable for the contents of your comment if it violates any laws.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.


Analytics are handled by the jetpack plugin. I don’t think they scan your cookies but at least they track some information to provide basic analytics (mostly how many people visited the site, what is the most popular and where did they come from).

Who we share your data with

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

On request by governments we will work with the law enforcement to ensure that the person is held accountable if some law is violated. Since this website is based in Germany, all comments that violate German law will be removed and handed to the police with all available user information (email, patron token, etc.).

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.
