  • you have given your express consent,

Collecting general information when visiting this website

When you access this website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is only information that does not allow conclusions about your person.

This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • Ensure a hassle-free connection to the site,
  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability as well as
  • for further administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest for the purposes mentioned above for collecting data. We do not use your information to draw conclusions about you. The recipient of the data is only the responsible body and possibly the processor.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us to optimize our website and the underlying technology.

Data collection when visiting this website

Insofar as you use this website for informational purposes only, ie you neither register, conclude a contract with me or otherwise disclose information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our servers. When accessing this website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to be able to display this website and to ensure stability and security.

  • IP address of the user
  • Date and time of the request
  • Content of the request (concrete page)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Webpage from what comes the request (referrer)
  • User Agent (language and version of the browser software, user's operating system)

This data is temporarily stored in the log files of our system for a period of up to seven days. Further storage is possible, but in this case the IP addresses are partially deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible. Storage of the log files together with other personal data concerning you will not take place in this context. The legal basis for these processing operations is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Since the collection of the data for the display of the website and the storage of the data in log files for the operation of this website and the preservation of IT security is mandatory, you have no objection to this extent.


I reserve the right, if technically reasonable and necessary, to use so-called "cookies", but at the moment I can do without cookies and there are no cookies in use.

Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This will automatically give me certain data such. IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies can not be used to launch programs or to transfer malicious programs (malware) to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, I can facilitate navigation if necessary and enable the correct display of my web pages.

In no case will the data collected by us be disclosed to third parties or a link to personal data will be established without your consent.

Of course you can also view my website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can disable the use of cookies at any time through the settings of your browser. Please use the help features of your internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please note that some features of my website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

Email contact and contact forms

On this website you will find email links (mailto) and, if necessary, contact forms that can be used for electronic contact. As a result, I fulfill the legal requirement, among other things, to enable a quick electronic contact with me. If you use this option, your details will be used for the purpose of answering the request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR processed and automatically saved. I delete the request if it is no longer required and no legal archiving obligations apply.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, a state-of-the-art encryption method is used (e.g., SSL) over HTTPS.

Using script, stylesheet, or font libraries (e.g., Google Fonts)

I reserve the right to use on this website script, stylesheet or font files stored and provided remotely, for example, Google Fonts. I do not currently use them - all script, stylesheet and font files I use for this website are stored and used locally on and from this server. When using Google Fonts, they would be transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data.

The Google's privacy policy can be found here: Google Privacy Policy.

Modification of this Privacy Policy

I reserve the right to change this privacy policy to always comply with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. Your new visit will be subject to the new privacy policy.

The above privacy policy is based on the freely usable text of the Privacy policy generator of activeMind AG and is, where necessary and reasonable, adapted to the existing circumstances and supplemented by further meaningful information and statements.
