Privacy Policy


for this website

Data Protection

As operator of this website I take the protection of your personal data very seriously: I treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy.

The use of my website is generally possible without providing personal data. Personal data, such as names, addresses or email addresses, are always provided on a voluntary basis when possible. Those data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit permission.

However, I would like to point out that data transmissions via internet (e.g email communication) cannot be entirely secure and may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of personal details against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies

This website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies allow me to make my product more user-friendly, more efficient and more secure. Cookies are small text files, stored by your browser on your computer.

Most cookies that I use are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Those cookies enable me to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser to inform you when cookies are placed, to individually allow cookies, or to generally exclude cookies in certain cases, as well as to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The deactivation of cookies may impair the functionality of this website.

Server logfiles

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to me, such as:

  • browser type/version
  • used operating system
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of query

Those data cannot be associated with individual persons. I do not merge this data with other sources. I reserve the right to retrospectively check the data if there is any indication of illegal use.

Contact form

If you send enquiries to me via the contact form, your data entered into the contact form, including the stated contact information, are stored for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry and in case of additional enquiries. Those data will not be passed on without your permission.

Google Web Fonts

For the homogenous display of fonts, this website uses so-called web fonts that are provided by Google. On retrieving a website your browser downloads the necessary web fonts to your browser cache in order to correctly display texts and fonts. If your browser does not support web fonts, your computer uses a standard font.

For further information, please see Google’s FAQ as well as Google’s Privacy Policy.

Google Maps

This website uses the map service Google Maps via API. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the functions of Google Maps storage of your IP address is required. This information will usually be transferred to, and stored on, a server in the USA. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transmission.

For further information, please see Google’s Privacy Policy.

XING

My website uses functions of the network XING. The provider of these functions is XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29-32, 20354 Hamburg. With each access of one of my webpages that contains the XING functions, a connection to XING servers will be established. To my knowlege, no storage of personal data will occur. In particular, XING neither stores IP addresses nor evaluates user behaviour.

For further information concerning data protection and the XING share button, please read XING’s privacy policy.

Amazon partner program

I participate in the Amazon EU partner program. Some pages contain links to Amazon, with which I am able to earn income by advertising cost refund. Therefore Amazon places cookies in order to trace the origin of the order. In this way, Amazon is able to recognise that you have clicked the partner link on my website. For further information concerning the use of data by Amazon please view the Amazon’s privacy policy.

SSL Encryption

For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as enquiries you send to me as the provider, this website uses an SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of the browser from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock-symbol in your browser address line.

When the SSL encryption is activated, the data you have transmitted to me cannot be accessed by third parties.

Processing of data (customer data and contract data)

I collect, process and use personal data only as far as necessary for the establishment of, content-related arrangement of, or change of, the legal relationship (personal data). I only collect, process and use personal data about the use of my website (usage data) insofar as it is necessary to establish or invoice the use of the service.

Right to Information, Deletion, Blocking

You have the right to be informed about your personal data, their origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct, block or delete those data at any time and free of charge. For further questions, and questions concerning personal data, feel free to contact us under the address published in the impressum/legal notice.

Objection to commercial mails

Providers are obligated to publish contact information in the Legal Notice/Impressum. The use of such contact information by third parties for the purpose of distributing unsolicited advertisements or other commercial information is prohibited. The operator of this website reserves the right to take legal measures against senders of unsolicited commercial information, e.g. spam emails etc.
