Microsoft Application Insights
On our Syntaro Portal, we will use Application Insights, a web analytics service provided by Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA (“Microsoft”).
We use Application Insight to improve our service and to detect issues earlier. Application Insights places a cookie in the browser of the visitor of the web pages which allows for an analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website are usually transferred to a server of Microsoft in the US or Europe and stored there. On our behalf as a website operator, Microsoft will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other information on website usage and internet related services to us as a website operator. You can reject the required placing of the cookie – for example by settings in your browser which generally disable the automatic placing of cookies or adjust your browser so that cookies are blocked by Microsoft. However, we would like to point out that in this case you might not be able to use all features of our website to their full extent.
The following additional information is collected:
- Operating System
- Browser + Version
- Screen Resolution
- Approximate location of the user
- IP address
We can analyze these data using various reports. All this information is anonymous statistical data and referencing these to a person is not possible. The evaluations serve only for troubleshooting and optimization of the website and the application.

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.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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.
How long we retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

If you have an account on this site, or 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.
