The use of our website is possible without providing personal data. When personal information is requested (for example, name and email address on the contact form of the genealogy page or blog or email you send me), this is given voluntarily. This data will not be passed on to third parties.
We point out that sending information over the Internet is subject to security issues. Complete protection of the data from being accessed by third parties is not possible.
Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". They are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit and restore some of your preferences (such as your preferred language).
You can configure your browser settings so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in certain cases. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server log filesThe host (Bluehost) of these pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser transmits to them. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- IP address (anonymized)
- Time of request
Google AnalyticsThe webpages of the site contain Google Analytics java script which provides data about which pages are accessed, how long and much of the same information that the server collects. This information is compiled and available to me from their websites.
If you email me inquiries, your details from the email, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. Of course, we will not pass on this data. E-Mail Scott
