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 visitor’s IP address and browser user agent 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 picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

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 discarded 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 a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved 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

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

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

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Liebe Leser,

gerade haben Sie uns dabei geholfen, eine Finanzierungslücke für das Jahr 2023 zu schließen, da ist das Jahr auch schon fast zuende.

Weihnachten naht.

Und mit Weihnachten das jährlich wiederkehrende Problem:
Ein Weihnachtsmann, der im Kamin stecken bleibt, weil er zu viel anliefern muss.

Vermeiden Sie dieses Jahr diese Kalamität.
Diversifizieren Sie Ihr Geschenkportfolio.

Z.B. indem Sie unsere Sorgen um die Finanzierung des nächsten Jahres mindern.

Unser Dank ist Ihnen gewiss!
Und Sie können sicher sein, dass Sie auch im nächsten Jahr ScienceFiles in gewohntem Umfang lesen können.

Wir nehmen Geschenke über 

➡️unser Spendenkonto bei Halifax oder
➡️unsere sichere in den Blog integrierte Spendenfunktion

entgegen und bedanken uns bereits im Vorfeld bei allen, die uns unterstützen.

Sie finden alle notwendigen Informationen hier:
