The Wandering Pineapple by Laura Weber operates thewanderingpineapple.net and may operate other websites. It is The Wandering Pineapple’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, The Wandering Pineapple collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Wandering Pineapple’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Wandering Pineapple’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Wandering Pineapple may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Wandering Pineapple also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on thewanderingpineapple.net blogs/sites. The Wandering Pineapple only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Wandering Pineapple’s websites choose to interact with The Wandering Pineapple in ways that require The Wandering Pineapple to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Wandering Pineapple gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at thewanderingpineapple.net to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Wandering Pineapple are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Wandering Pineapple collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Wandering Pineapple. The Wandering Pineapple does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, for example, for requests, which you send to us as the website operator, this website uses an SSL encryption. You can identify an encrypted link, as the address line in the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL encryption is activated, the data that you forward to us cannot be read by third parties.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Wandering Pineapple discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on The Wandering Pineapple’s behalf or to provide services available at The Wandering Pineapple’s websites, and that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Wandering Pineapple’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Wandering Pineapple will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Wandering Pineapple discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Wandering Pineapple believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Wandering Pineapple, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Wandering Pineapple website and have supplied your email address, The Wandering Pineapple may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Wandering Pineapple and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Wandering Pineapple takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors.
Server log files

- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL

- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. Therefore server log files have to be stored.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
