As long as you are only reading on our page: We don’t want your data. We do not use your data. (We wouldn’t even know how.)
If you are commenting, there are some technical requirements (see below).
If you are concerned about your personal data (on the internet you always should be): Use aliases, not your real name.

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 upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

There are no contact forms.

If you decide to send us an email, please note that we will receive the email-address you use to contact us – as well as any information you choose to share with us in that email.

Be aware that an email in itself is said to be as private as a postcard. For more information, the Wikipedia article on Email privacy can be a starting point.


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 visit our login page, 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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

(So there is no marketing, no Google analytics, no … integrated into this website.)

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.

Contact information

All participating schools and their addresses are listed above and on the Contact page.
Each school publishes their contributions under their respective country names. If you have questions regarding a specific article, you may contact the concerned school directly. A general contact is possible via this address: .

Additional information

How we protect your data

We do not collect any data from our visitors – as long as they do not leave comments.

Some general tips which apply to all websites:
Don’t ever use your real personal data (name etc.) on the internet when leaving comments.
Use different aliases on every website you comment on.
If possible: Do not use your real email-address when commenting.
If not possible: Have a disposable email-address which you give when commenting.
