Hi, thanks for not killing her! She’s a cross orbweaver, Araneus diadematus. She is a predator of large flying insects, not humans. Not dangerous unless you were to combine: (doing things you shouldn’t do with a spider and your bare flesh) + (bad luck of your immune system reaction) and/ or (the spider happens to have pathogenic bacteria on her fangs).
