In case of legal issues the necessary data will be saved for as long as needed to solve the legal issue.

To deliver this functionality and record activities around site management, the following information is captured: user email address, user role, user login, user display name, and local user IDs, the activity to be recorded, the site ID of the site on which the activity takes place, the site’s Jetpack version, and the timestamp of the activity. Some activities may also include the actor’s IP address (login attempts, for example) and user agent.

Login attempts/actions, post and page update and publish actions, comment/pingback submission and management actions, plugin and theme management actions, widget updates, user management actions, and the modification of other various site settings and options. Retention duration of activity data depends on the site’s plan and activity type.

Disclosure of data handling processes will be made only if necessary upon request in case of a contract. In case of a contract data will be handled as requested by the client and in conformity to the Art.28 DSGVO.

COment likes

In order to process a comment like, the following information is used: user ID/username (you must be logged in to use this feature), the local site-specific user ID (if the user is signed in to the site on which the like occurred), and a true/false data point that tells us if the user liked a specific comment. If you perform a like action from one of our mobile apps, some additional information is used to track the activity: IP address, user agent, timestamp of event, blog ID, browser language, country code, and device info.


When contacting me via email, telephone or social media personal data of the user will be handled to process the enquiry based on Art.6 Abs.1 lit b DSGVO. Enquiries will be deleten when no longer needed. No data will be given to third parties.


Data Used: Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects. For sites running WooCommerce (also owned by Automattic) and this feature simultaneously and having all purchase tracking explicitly enabled, purchase events will send Google Analytics the following information: order number, product id and name, product category, total cost, and quantity of items purchased. Google Analytics does offer IP anonymization, which can be enabled by the site owner.

Activity Tracked: This feature sends page view events (and potentially video play events) over to Google Analytics for consumption. For sites running WooCommerce-powered stores, some additional events are also sent to Google Analytics: shopping cart additions and removals, product listing views and clicks, product detail views, and purchases. Tracking for each specific WooCommerce event needs to be enabled by the site owner.

In case of an online store, Analytics includes revenue, conversion, and cart abandonment data so the site owner can track how business is doing and identify opportunities for growth.

infinite scroll

Data Used: In order to record page views via Stats (which must be enabled for page view tracking here to work) with additional loads, the following information is used: IP address, user ID (if logged in), username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.

Activity Tracked: Page views will be tracked with each additional load (i.e. when you scroll down to the bottom of the page and a new set of posts loads automatically). If the site owner has enabled Google Analytics to work with this feature, a page view event will also be sent to the appropriate Google Analytics account with each additional load.


Social media accounts are used to inform about my services, stay in contact with clients and interested parties and communicate with my followers. When visiting these social media platforms, data handling is in the responsibility of the respective owners. I will not take responsibility for data handling on any social media platform.
To visit social media accounts WordPress provides graphical elements, also known as icons and those are used on this website to help visitor in navigating through the site. Also, when using this online service (hyperlinks) the visitors browser connects to the server of the linked to social media account. Social media platform may build user profiles based on their surfing habbits. I have no access to this data and cannot provide any information about its handling.
I only inform the visitor of my website about this possibility.
