Who we are

Our website address is:

The Basics

This privacy policy is intended to provide the website user with information regarding the kind of data gathered, to what extent and for what purposes it is gathered by the website operator gentineX GmbH & Co. KG.

The website operator takes your privacy seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in compliance with statutory regulations. Since the development of new technologies and continuous improvements made to the site can lead to changes to this privacy policy, we recommend that you reread the privacy policy from time to time.

Definitions of the terms applied here (for instance ‘personal data’ or ‘processing’) can be found in Art. 4, GDPR.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Handling contact details

If you contact us, the website operator, using the contact page, the data you enter will be stored so that it can be used to process and respond to your query. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your permission.


When site visitors leave comments, we collect the data entered in the comment form, including the visitor’s IP address and user agent string (to identify the browser) in order to identify spam.

An anonymised string of characters (also called a hash) is created from your email address and is sent to the Gravatar service in order to determine whether you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found here: https.// After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be made public in the context of your comment.


If you are a registered user and upload photos to this website, you should avoid uploading photos with an EXIF GPS location. Website visitors can download photos saved to this site and extract the location data from them.


This website uses cookies. Cookies are small units of data that are saved to the end user’s device. Your browser will access this data. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

If you prefer not to have cookies placed on your device when visiting this website, you can object to their use (cookie notice).

You can choose not to allow cookies in the settings of most common browsers. Please note: If you do not allow cookies, complete access to the full functionality of this website cannot be guaranteed.

When you add a comment to our website, this may be construed as permission to save your name, email address and website in cookies. This is a convenience function so that, should you wish to provide an additional comment, you will not be required to enter the data again. These cookies will be saved for one year.

If you have created an account and login to this website, we will place a temporary cookie in order to determine whether your browser will accept cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and will be discarded once you close your browser.

When you login, we will place some cookies on your device in order to save your login information and display options. Login cookies expire after two days and cookies for display options expire after one year. If at the time of registration, you choose to stay logged in, your registration will be maintained for two weeks. Login cookies will be deleted when you log out of your account.

Embedded content from other websites

Contributions to this website may contain embedded content (for instance videos, photos, posts, etc.). Embedded contents from other websites behave exactly as if the visitor had visited their website.

These websites might collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional tracking services from third parties, and record your interaction with this embedded content, including your interaction with the embedded content in the event that you have an account with the website and are logged in.

How long we keep your data

When you write a comment, the comment, including its metadata, will be stored indefinitely. In this way we can automatically recognise and approve follow-up comments, rather than having them wait in a moderator queue.

For users who register with our website, we store additional personal data that they provide in their user profile. All users can see, change or delete their personal data at any time (the user name cannot be changed). Website administrators can also see and change this information.

What rights you have to your data

If you have an account on this website or have written comments, you can request an export of all your personal data, including all the data that you shared with us. In addition, you can request the deletion of all of your personal data that we have stored. This does not include any data that we are required to store for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked by an automated service in the interests of spam recognition.

Only comments in German are permitted. Comments authored in English in a German-language blog are usually unwanted advertising messages and are relegated to spam by the Antispam Bee (WordPress Plugin to combat spam). Franc is used to determine the language. For this purpose, Antispam Bee sends the comment text to this online service via a HTTPS connection. No other data of the commenting user or the WordPress system will be included in the transmission.
