Data privacy statement

Data privacy

The privacy of your data is of utmost importance to us. Consequently, we have implemented necessary steps in order to handle your data confidential and adhere to all data privacy regulations, most importantly GDPR. In general, the usage of this website is possible without the provision of any kinds of private data. Only a few services of this website make use of personal data and the usage of these is fully voluntary (e.g., posting comments or signing up to the newsletter). Data does not get sent to third parties without your explicit consent. We advise all users of this website to also be careful with handling their own private data and to also be aware of security risks in transferring data via certain channels such as e-mail. On this site we utilize an SSL certificate and force HTTPS to counteract certain security issues while transferring data. This website is a self-hosted Siteground instance of WordPress with the hosting location being in the European Union (Amsterdam).

At each time, a user of this website can request information about stored personalized data as well as request the deletion of corresponding data. For any inquiries, please contact our general e-mail address

Server log files

Our hosting provider Siteground is collecting server log files that get automatically transferred via your browser. These logs contain information about the requesting user’s browser, operating system, hostname (ip address), referrer URL, and time of request. We cannot and will not directly connect this data to any particular user. The main purpose of collecting this log data is to ensure network and information security (see recital 49 GDPR). This could, for example, include preventing unauthorised access to electronic communications networks and malicious code distribution and stopping ‘denial of service’ attacks and damage to computer and electronic communication systems.

This website offers an e-mail service to visitors that sends occasional newsletters with updates on our blog posts, news, offered services, products or referrals. For signing up to the newsletter, only the provision of an e-mail address is necessary. Additionally, we follow a double opt-in procedure, meaning that an additional confirmation by the user is necessary in order to sign-up for the newsletter service. Corresponding request for additional approval is sent via e-mail and contains a link to this data privacy statement. After signing up, users can opt-out of the newsletter at any time by clicking on respective link in one of the received e-mails or by contacting us directly. Voluntarily, they can also provide their first and last name in the subscription management site. 

As underlying service, we use a self-hosted instance of MailPoet meaning that corresponding data does not leave this site. Mailpoet allows us to track opens and clicks on our emails. We use this information to improve the content of our newsletters.No identifiable information is otherwise tracked outside this website except for the email address.


Our website allows users to post comments to blog articles. After posting, our website stores provided comment, name, and email. Additionally, we store the user’s ip address for guaranteeing the security of this website. This allows us to provide proof of potential illegal content posted by others (e.g., insults, political propaganda, etc.). Additionally, we internally use it for fighting against spam on our website.

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.
