This privacy statement has been created in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: andreasjakl.com.
Third Party Sites
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html and at https://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
This website also allows you to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking.
The specific user data is retained for a maximum amount of 14 months and is automatically deleted or anonymized afterwards.
This site makes use of the “Shariff” data sharing buttons. These have been developed to provide more privacy than the often used “Share” buttons of social networks. For example, the server of this website requests the number of “Likes” from the social network, instead of having your browser query the information. This allows you to stay anonymous. You can find more information about the Shariff project on the magazine website c’t: https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html (German)
This website embeds functionality provided by the Twitter service. This functionality is offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the function “re-tweet”, the websites visited by you are linked to your Twitter account and shared with other users. This involves transmitting your data to Twitter.
This site makes options to comment on posts available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
For safe and user friendly management of comments, we use the comment service DISQUS (offered by DISQUS, Inc., 301 Howard St, Floor 3 San Francisco, California- 94105, USA). DISQUS is certified by the privacy shield agreement and therefore guarantees to conform to the European data protection laws: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TRkEAAW&status=Active
To use the DISQUS service, you have to sign up for a DISQUS user account or one of your existing social media accounts. DISQUS manages your account data; this website does not have access to your login information. In addition, you have the option of providing comments as a guest, without creating an account with DISQUS.
Please also note that DISQUS may log information about you, like the IP address at the time of posting, as well as setting a Cookie in your browser. You can opt in or out of data sharing at any time: https://disqus.com/data-sharing-settings/
Information Automatically Logged
By default, all web servers automatically log the IP address of visitors and information sent automatically by the browser. This is used to gather statistics about traffic and helps diagnose problems. The data is cumulated to generate general usage statistics, which do not contain any information about individual visitors.
If you provide us with personal information, for example when contacting us, this information will only be used to get in touch with you when necessary.
Non-Personally-Identifiable User Information
For each visitor to our websites, we collect non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, preferences, technical session information, browser type. This data is used to manage the website, track website usage, provide context for referring traffic sources, and improve overall website performance. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes. If you arrived at our website via a link from another webpage, we may receive aggregate or otherwise anonymous statistical information about your visit to our site. We monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site, and to improve the content of our website to better match the interests of our website users.

Data Used: To initiate and process subscriptions, the following information is used: subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (
DOCUMENT_URI). This server data used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.
Activity Tracked: Functionality cookies are set for a duration of 347 days to remember a visitor’s blog and post subscription choices if, in fact, they have an active subscription.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
