What personal data do we collect, and why?
We generally collect the data given in the comments form. Additionally, we collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid spam detection. To check visitor comments, an automatic spam detection service could be employed.
We advise you to avoid submitting photos with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Keep this in mind if you’re planning to upload images to the website.
Remember that any of the location data from photographs on the website can be downloaded. Furthermore, the data can be extracted by any website visitor.

How long do we keep your information?
If users register on our website, we also keep the personal information they provide in their user profiles (if any). Any user can see, alter, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). It is also hugely important for you to know that the Administrators of the website can examine and update the data.
