How and which data is processed?

1. Server log data

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in the server log files that your browser automatically transmits to me. These are:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

A combination of this data with other types of data is not made. The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. I have a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of my website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

2. SSL-, respectively TLS-Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize this either by the existing s in “https://” or by the lock symbol in the browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

3. Inquiries by e-mail or phone

If you contact me by e-mail or phone, your request including the resulting personal data (name, request, e-mail address) will be stored and processed by me for the purpose of processing your request. The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on my legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests sent to me, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Your sent personal data will remain with me until you request me to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies, i.e. I have processed the request. Legal requirements (retention periods) remain unaffected.

4. Cooperation and purchase of services or products

Data that is transmitted due to a cooperation or the purchase of a service or product may consist of extended personal data, such as address, billing information or bank data. This data is stored and processed by me for the purpose of processing your request.

Your transmitted personal data will remain with me until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage ceases to apply, i.e. I have processed the request. Legal regulations (retention periods) remain unaffected.

5. Zoom

I use Zoom for communication and collaboration with my (potential) clients. Zoom is a video teleconferencing software. The provider is Zoom Video Communications, Inc, 55 Almaden Boulevard, Suite 600, San Jose, CA 95113, USA. The legal basis results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Zoom processes the data as a processor on servers in the EU. The level of data protection is also guaranteed in the USA through the conclusion of EU standard contractual clauses. Data is only collected by Zoom when participating in a Zoom meeting. Data collected may include:

  • Registered name,
  • IP address,
  • User profile data,
  • Content of accessed conferences, online meetings or webinars.

If Zoom meetings are recorded, this will be verbally recorded in the respective appointment before recording. You then have the option to leave the Zoom meeting before recording. I store the recordings locally on my server or in the Zoom cloud. The legal basis results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. A recording only takes place with your (implied) consent.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Zoom can be found here:

6. Cookie Notice & Compliance for GDPR / CCPA

To manage the cookies and similar technologies used (tracking pixels, web beacons, etc.) and related consents, I use the Consent Tool “Cookie Notice & Compliance for GDPR / CCPA”.

8. Cabin Analytics

There is a web analytics application implemented called Cabin. The analytics tool only collects a minimum of data that is purely technical in nature. No personal data is collected. That is, no unique identifier is ever stored for any of our visitors. Better yet, no relational data is stored, which means that it is impossible to triangulate a user based on their location, browser, operating system, language, etc. For more information, visit

9. Brevo Newsletter Platform

I use Brevo as a newsletter platform. By submitting the newsletter form, you agree that the data you provide will be transmitted to Brevo for processing in accordance with their terms of use. The email address will only be used for the purposes you have agreed to.

How long will the data be retained?

Unless a more specific storage period is mentioned within my privacy policy, your personal data will remain with me until the purpose for data processing ceases to apply. Your data will be deleted when you make a request for deletion or revoke your consent for storage. Unless I have other, legally permissible, reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. commercial law, tax law deadlines), I will delete your data. In the latter case, the deletion will take place after the reasons (deadlines) no longer apply. I can correct, supplement or delete incorrect or incomplete data at any time at my own discretion.

What rights do you have?

As a data subject, you have the following rights:

  • According to Art. 15 DSGVO the right to request information about your personal data processed by me to the extent specified therein.
  • Pursuant to Art. 16 DSGVO, the right to request the correction of inaccurate or incomplete personal data stored by me without undue delay.
  • Pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO the right to request the deletion of your personal data stored by me, unless the further processing is

    • for the fulfillment of a legal obligation,
    • for reasons of public interest or
    • if necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • In accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, insofar as
    • the accuracy of the data is disputed by you;
    • the processing is unlawful, but you refuse its erasure;
    • I no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
    • you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO.
  • Pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, the right to receive your personal data in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another responsible person.

If the data processing is based on Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, I will no longer process your personal data concerned, unless I can demonstrate legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) DSGVO). If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this type of data processing at any time.

Social media

I have public profiles on social media. If you are logged into your social media account and visit my social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can associate your visit with your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media provider. This happens in the form of cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.

Social media providers thus create user profiles to identify your preferences. This can be used to show you personalized advertising inside and outside the respective social media channel. If you have an account with the respective social network, personalized advertising will be displayed to you on all end devices.

1. Legal basis

My appearances on social media are a marketing measure and are intended to ensure visibility on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The analysis processes carried out by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operators of the social networks.

2. Responsible parties and assertion of rights.

If you visit one of my social media sites, I am jointly responsible with the operator for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can generally assert your rights both with me and with the provider of the respective social media channel.

3. Storage period

The data directly collected by me via the social media presence will be deleted by me as soon as the purpose for storage ceases to apply, you request me to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage ceases to apply. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Legal provisions (such as retention periods) remain unaffected.

I have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy).

4. My account at Instagram

I have a profile on Instagram. The Instagram service is provided to you by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited. The provider is Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data transfer to the USA

I use tools from providers based in the USA. Personal data may be transferred to the servers of the respective companies. The USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data (also of Europeans) to security authorities.

I use appropriate and modern security measures and strong technical-organizational measures to protect your data from loss, misuse and alteration. I do everything in my power to prevent a violation of your rights or a risk to your personal data.

Please keep in mind that data transmission over the Internet is never completely secure. I cannot guarantee the security of the data you enter on my website.

Why do I collect data?

There are several reasons for collecting your data:

  • to provide and operate my services;
  • to develop, customize and improve my services;
  • to respond to your feedback, inquiries and requests, and to provide assistance;

How do I deal with minors?

My offer is basically directed to adults. Individuals under the age of 16 should not and may not submit any personal information to me without the consent of their parents or guardians. If I knowingly collect, use or disclose information collected from a child, I will provide notice and obtain parental consent in accordance with applicable law. I do not condition a child’s participation in an online activity on the child providing more contact information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. I will use the information I collect only in connection with the services the child has requested. I may also use a parent’s contact information to communicate about the child’s activities in the Services. Parents may review data I have collected from their child, prohibit me from collecting any more data from their child, and request that any data I have collected be deleted from my records. Please contact me to view, update, or delete your child’s data. For your child’s protection, I may ask you to provide proof of your identity. Please note that certain data cannot be deleted due to legal obligations.
