We are not interested in collecting personal data. Nonetheless the software on our server is using your data. We have deactivated all possible settings to prevent privacy issues. We do not collect the visitors IP address and our server settings are turned off: no log files are stored. We have to write reports and that is why we need some statistics to do so. Please read the last paragraph about Matomo to learn more about our tracking details.
We use forms on this page. Some forms are to get information from you about or for circular economy projects. In this case we inform you about the storage process next to the form. All other forms are connected with our content management system WordPress. When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form because the software needs it to handle the next step. We do not collect the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string. This is used on most websites to help spam detection. We want the best possible privacy and that is why we don’t use the plugins for spam protection. But this is also the reason why we don’t provide a comment option on our pages by default, exceptions are possible for limited time. Comments are always welcome: please sent us a message to the address mentioned on the top.
In some cases it is possible that we temporarily activate the comments options which is normally turned off on this page. 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.
