Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June,  06th / 2018 (“WebSite”) is concerned with the protection of your personal data and therefore wants you (“you”)to be familiar with how we collect, process and communicate personal data. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in relation to the information that we and our subcontractors collect through the WebSite, operated and controlled by us, and from which you are accessing this Privacy Policy. By providing us with personal data or by using the Website, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

The use of this Site is still subject to the terms and conditions described in the Terms of Use.

Personal Data Collection


The WebSite is generally accessible and not subject to any prior registration, however, some areas of the WebSite may ask you to provide personal information so that you can benefit from specific features (such as subscribing to newsletters, comments / suggestions or for processing forms) or to participate in a specific action. In any case, you will be informed about the mandatory response fields (which have an asterisk) and the optional response fields (which do not have an asterisk). We may cross-reference the data you provided with other data we collect about you, whether online or offline. We may also cross-reference such data with data we receive from you from other sources, such as from publicly available information sources (including information from your publicly available social networking profiles) and from third parties.


When visitors leave comments on the WebSite (when this feature is enabled), we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as the IP address and data of the visitor’s browser, to aid in the detection of spam. An anonymised string of characters created from your email (also called a hash) can be sent to Gravatar to see if you use the service. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here: After your comment has been approved, your profile picture is publicly visible next to your comment.

By leaving a comment on the WebSite, you may choose to save your name, email and WebSite in cookies. This is for your comfort, so you do not have to fill in your data again when you make another comment. These cookies last for one year. If you have an account and access this WebSite, a temporary cookie will be created to determine if your browser accepts cookies. It does not contain any personal data and will be discarded when you close your browser.

When you access your account on the WebSite, we also create multiple cookies to save your account data and your display choices. Login cookies are held for two days and screen options cookies for one year. If you select “Remember me”, your access will be retained for two weeks. If you disconnect from your account, your login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved to your browser. This cookie does not include any personal data and simply indicates the post ID for the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are preserved indefinitely. We do this so that it may be possible to automatically recognize and approve any subsequent comments rather than retaining them for moderation.

Comments from visitors can be checked by an automatic spam detection service.

All such information previously described is also stored in the entity providing the form submission service, and in the hosting service.
