Profile pictures from Gravatar
Gravatar is a service where users can register and leave profile pictures and their email addresses. If users leave posts or comments on other online presences (especially blogs) with the respective email address, their profile pictures can be displayed next to the posts or comments. For this purpose, the email address provided by the users is transmitted to Gravatar in encrypted form for the purpose of checking whether a profile is stored for it. This is the sole purpose of the transmission of the email address. It is not used for other purposes, but is deleted afterwards.
The use of Gravatar is based on our legitimate interests, as we use Gravatar to offer post and comment authors the opportunity to personalise their posts with a profile picture.
If you do not want a user image linked to your Gravatar email address to appear in the comments, you should use an email address that is not on file with Gravatar to comment. We also point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous email address or no email address at all if users do not want their email address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can completely prevent the transmission of data by not using our commenting system.
Media and content from other websites
You will find links to the websites of all Project Partners on the Website. Stiftung Bildung & Handwerk as project coordinator has no control of the content or links that appear on the websites of the Partners and is not responsible for the practices employed by websites other than our own, linked to or from the Website.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell, trade or rent users’ personal identification data to third parties. We may share general aggregate user demographic information that is not linked to personal identification information about visitors and users with our business partners as part of the project for the purposes outlined above.
Visitors comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service (Antispam Bee).
