Privacy Policy

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.

Other personal data

Other personal data is only collected if you give this information voluntarily, for example, when ordering goods, when opening a customer account or when registering for our newsletter. This data will be deleted again on request.

If you have provided us with personal data for purposes of registration, we will only use it without your special consent to answer your enquiries, to process contracts made with you, to maintain and service your customer account, for technical administration, and to notify our latest sales actions. WE DO NOT SHARE YOUR DATA WITH ANY THIRD PARTY.

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.


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.

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 log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
