The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, email addresses, etc.).
How do I collect your data?
Some data is collected when you provide it to me. This could, for example, be data you enter on a contact form, when you comment on one of my blog posts, or when you subscribe to my newsletter.
Other data is collected automatically by my IT systems when you visit the website. This data is primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or what time/date you accessed the page. This data are collected automatically as soon as you enter my website.
What do I use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure the proper functioning and security of this website. Other data can be used to analyze how visitors use the site; for this purpose, the data is anonymized. I also need your personal data to deliver my newsletter to your inbox if you’ve subscribed to it.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You always have the right to request information about your stored data, its origin, its recipients, and the purpose of its collection at no charge. For identification reasons, this needs to be done in writing (see postal address above). You also have the right to request that your data be corrected, blocked, or deleted. You can contact me at any time if you have further questions about the issue of privacy and data protection. You may also, of course, file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities.
Analytics and third-party tools
When visiting my website, statistical analyses may be made of your surfing behavior. The analysis of your surfing behavior is anonymous, i.e. I will not be able to identify you from this data.
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e. g. via email) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.
When you revoke your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your expressed consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before I receive your request may still be legally processed.
When you want to file a complaint with regulatory authorities
If you have been affected by a breach of data protection legislation, you may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. Find out more at HHS.gov.
When you want to take your data with you
You have the right to have your data, which I process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send me through contact forms. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
When you want to demand information, blocking, deletion
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact me at any time if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Fair game: I oppose to promotional emails
I hereby expressly prohibit the use of my contact data published on this website for sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. I reserve the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
In detail: How I collect data on this website
Server log files
This website’s hosting provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to “server log files”. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address (anonymized)
This data will not be combined with data from other sources and is needed, among other, to deliver this website to your screen in an appealing and functional way. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Should you send me a message via the contact form, I will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. I do not share this information with third parties unless required to do so by law. That said, I process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or to fulfill a contract (in the making) pursuing to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before I receive your request may still be legally processed.
I will retain the data you provide via 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 a contract). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
