We're not doing anything different than any other website on the planet, but it's only fair we explain it to you.

Cookies are small text files stored by us inside your browser. This allows us to give your browser a short- and long-term memory.

In general, all cookies we set are necessary to provide functionality on our sites. Details on which cookies are set are available at Cookies.

Some of the third party services we use (see below) may also set their own cookies. We explain those further down. Your browser has settings to control which cookies it accepts and for how long it stores them. How to enable cookies.

The web server hosting our site will log each page access. This log will also contain some personal data:

  • your IP address
  • the referrer (where you came from)
  • your browser identification

This information is necessary for legal reasons and to analyse and prevent abuse. This allows us to keep users away who try to crash our server or to have necessary evidence in case of illegal or criminal activity.

Our server logs are automatically deleted after 14 days. We will only keep log files longer when they are needed as evidence during an investigation.

When you allowed to edit a page, we log the following personal data

  • username
  • IP address

This allows us to easily block users who vandalize the wiki. And your username allows us to credit you according to the CC Attribution Share Alike license we use on this wiki.

  • username

All other data is optional.

The GRTLab-Database, accessible via the GRTLab-Plugin in GRT and this site share your user account data (both are running on the same server). That means the same information is used. You can see and update that personal information in your user profile.

When you want to delete your account, just go to your profile and opt to deletion. It will then delete completely your account.

We invite you to join our social communities. To do so we use their social widgets on some pages. These may track you with a cookie.
