Thank you for visiting Exomorph1. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and protect your personal information when you visit our website at https://exomorph1.com (the “Website”). We are committed to safeguarding your privacy and ensuring that your personal information is handled securely and in compliance with applicable data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

1. Information We Collect

Comments: When you leave a comment on our website, we collect the data shown in the comments form, your IP address, and your browser user agent string to help with spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy can be found at https://automattic.com/privacy/. After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media: If you upload images to the website, please avoid uploading images that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract location data from such images.

Cookies: We use cookies to enhance your experience on our website. If you leave a comment on our site, you may choose to save 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 visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any 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 contains 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 our website may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if you 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 tracking your interaction if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

2. Use of Personal Information

We use the personal information collected from you for the following purposes:

  • To display your comments on the Website.
  • To provide you with access to certain features and functionalities of the Website.
  • To improve and optimize the content and user experience of the Website.
  • To respond to your inquiries and provide customer support.
  • To communicate with you regarding updates, promotions, and relevant information about our products and services, subject to your consent.

3. Sharing of Personal Information

We may share your personal information with the following third parties and under the following circumstances:

  • Gravatar service: If you have a Gravatar account and your comment includes an email address linked to that account, your profile picture will be visible in the context of your comment.
  • Automated spam detection service: Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

4. Data Retention

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This is done to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically, rather than holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we store the personal information provided 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.

6. Use of Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, and Google Fonts

We use Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel to collect data for marketing purposes. These services help us understand how visitors use our website and provide relevant advertisements based on user behavior. Please note that we do not sell your data or disclose any personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.

Additionally, we use Google Fonts, which are loaded from the Google Fonts directory. When you access our website, your browser may download the necessary font files from Google servers.

YouTube

Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.

If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Vimeo

Our website uses features provided by the Vimeo video portal. This service is provided by Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

If you visit one of our pages featuring a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. Here the Vimeo server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo will receive your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo when you visit our plugin or do not have a Vimeo account. The information is transmitted to a Vimeo server in the US, where it is stored.

If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.

For more information on how to handle user data, please refer to the Vimeo Privacy Policy at https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

SoundCloud

On our pages, plugins of the SoundCloud social network (SoundCloud Limited, Berners House, 47-48 Berners Street, London W1T 3NF, UK) may be integrated. The SoundCloud plugins can be recognized by the SoundCloud logo on our site.

When you visit our site, a direct connection between your browser and the SoundCloud server is established via the plugin. This enables SoundCloud to receive information that you have visited our site from your IP address. If you click on the “Like” or “Share” buttons while you are logged into your SoundCloud account, you can link the content of our pages to your SoundCloud profile. This means that SoundCloud can associate visits to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it will be used by SoundCloud. For more information on SoundCloud’s privacy policy, please go to https://soundcloud.com/pages/privacy.

If you do not want SoundCloud to associate your visit to our site with your SoundCloud account, please log out of your SoundCloud account.

7. Security of Your Personal Information

We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of your personal information and protect it from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or alteration. However, please note that no method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

8. Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time without prior notice. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting the updated Privacy Policy on the Website. By continuing to access or use the Website after any changes, you accept and agree to the revised Privacy Policy.
