This website


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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

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.

Web server logs

Our web server does not log any private information whatsoever – not even your IP.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone.

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.

What rights you have over your data

If you 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. Please see our contact page for information on how to contact us.

Lab website

The same applies for our lab website at https://lab.bytegold.com as to this website – with the exception of local storage use.

Local storage

Our lab website uses the browser local storage to save the setting when Dark Mode support is turned on or off.

Local storage is necessary for the setting to work and is only used when a user clicks on the Dark Mode button.
No data is saved in the database or transferred.

Mailing list

Bytegold meta list

We run a mailing list that we call the Bytegold meta list. With it we keep our friends & family updated. Only a few mails per year.

What data do we collect

If you subscribe to our mailing list we collect your email address and optionally your name and you have to consent to the usage of your data as outlined here.

To subscribe you have to double opt-in. That means after you entered your data and clicked “subscribe” you will receive an email with a confirmation link. Only after clicking this link will you start receiving our Bytegold meta list mailings.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone, but we use the Google Workspace SMTP relay service to send emails. You can read about Google Cloud & the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

How long we retain your data

Once you are subscribed we keep your sign-up information indefinitely.

We also keep track of which emails we sent to you at which point in time.

What rights you have over your data

You can easily unsubscribe from our mailing list by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of every mailing. If you unsubscribe yourself we still keep your sign-up information in our system but you will not receive any more mailings.

You can also contact us to request that we manually remove all your information from our mailing list system.
