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 user’s IP address and browser 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 photo will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Indien u afbeeldingen uploadt, raden wij u aan om afbeeldingen te uploaden zonder EXIF data aangezien daar soms de GPS-locatie ingebed is. Andere bezoekers van de website kunnen de afbeeldingen downloaden en deze data inzien.

Contact forms

When submitting a contact form, we store the same data as for comments.


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 last for a year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is deleted when you close your browser.

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 one year. If you select “Remember me”, your login will remain valid for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be deleted.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be stored in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Artikelen op deze site kunnen ingesloten inhoud bevatten (bijvoorbeeld video’s, afbeeldingen, artikelen, enz.). Ingesloten inhoud van andere websites gedraagt zich op precies dezelfde manier alsof de bezoeker de andere website heeft bezocht.

Deze websites kunnen gegevens over u verzamelen, cookies gebruiken, aanvullende tracking van derden insluiten en uw interactie met die ingesloten inhoud volgen, inclusief het bijhouden van uw interactie met de ingesloten inhoud als u een account hebt en bent ingelogd op die website.


To gain insight into how well our website functions, we keep track of how many visitors there have been and the behavior of these visitors. We share this data with Google as we use Google Analytics for this purpose.

How long do we keep your data?

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 who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also view and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
