When using my website, your processed data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any legal storage obligations and no other information on individual processing procedures is provided below.


For technical reasons, and in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to me or to my web space provider via your Internet browser. By means of server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to my Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of my Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access as well as the IP address of the Internet connection from which my Internet presence is used are collected. Data collected in this way will be temporarily stored, but not together with other data of yours. This data is stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). My legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of my Internet presence. The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidentiary purposes. Otherwise, all or part of the data will not be deleted until an incident is finally resolved.


If you contact me by e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. It is necessary to provide the data for processing and answering your enquiry – without the data, we cannot answer your enquiry or can only do so to a limited extent. The data will be processed for the purpose of contacting us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a of the GDPR on the basis of your voluntary consent. Your data will be deleted if your enquiry has been answered and there is no legal obligation to keep your data safe, e.g. in the event of any subsequent contract processing.


This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to me as the website operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection when the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to me cannot be read by third parties.

• in accordance with Art. 16 of the GDPR, to demand without delay the correction of incorrect or complete personal data stored by me;

• in accordance with Art. 18 of the GDPR, to restrict the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse to delete it and I no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have filed an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 of the GDPR;
