For a more detailed explanation of the terminology used, such as personal data or processing, refer to Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Data collection and processing purposes during your visit to the website: When you visit my website,, solely for informational purposes (without registration or submission of additional information), your web browser automatically transmits information to my website's server.

  4. For additional administrative purposes

Hetzner Online GmbH, located in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany, hosts this website and I use Cloudflare as a Content Delivery Network (CDN). IP addresses are stored in a pseudonymized format within their log files. To achieve this, the original visitor IP address, such as, is stored as 123.123.123.XXX, where XXX is a random value between 1 and 254. Consequently, the address cannot be linked to an individual. Log files are automatically deleted after 7 days.

Data collection during contact: To contact me, you may send an email. All that is required is a valid email address and your inquiry, so I can respond to your query and identify the sender. In accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1(c) of the GDPR, the collected data is retained solely for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. Your inquiry will be deleted once there is no further need for storage, or its processing will be restricted if there is a legal obligation to retain the data.

Data transfer: My website does not collect personal data; therefore, the use and transfer of data is not applicable.

Cookies and server-side session storage: Cookies are small text files that correspond with your browser and are stored on your hard drive. They can be thought of as small notes on which a website records specific information, such as the status of the current connection. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make internet offerings more user-friendly and effective or to enable certain functions. Common cookies are known as session cookies, which store an identifier (session-ID) that allows various browser requests to be assigned to the same session. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can modify your browser's settings to, for example, reject individual or all cookies, or to display a notification before a new cookie is created. Completely deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of certain features on my website.

Usage of session cookies on my website: My website utilizes the Content Management System (CMS) Ghost, and I oversee its content. In a few necessary instances, the CMS creates session cookies. In addition to attributing consecutive requests to a single session, cookies can store technical states from one request to another, such as the last visited subpage within the entire website or the status of forms, particularly errors and other feedback after submission. The data entered in the form is not stored in the cookies. Session cookies are deleted once you close your browser.

Access tracking and analysis: My website does not collect or store any additional data regarding access beyond the automatically logged data by your web browser. I do not generate any access statistics.

Integration of services and third-party content: The program libraries and font files required for developing my website are exclusively sourced from my own web server. As a result, no personal data is transmitted. I employ Google tools for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) purposes and collect first names, last names, and email addresses for e-books, newsletters, and gated content. Nonetheless, this information is not utilized for advertising purposes since my website is personal in nature.

I incorporate videos from the online platform YouTube, a service provided by Google. For more information on Google's data policy concerning the purpose and scope of data collection and processing, please visit [Google's data policy URL]. To modify data-related settings and explore objection options, visit [Google's settings URL]. Google can only supply content, i.e., send it to your web browser, if it knows your IP address.

By accessing my website, Google is informed that you have visited the respective subpage of my site. This data transmission occurs independently of whether you are logged into Google. If you are logged into Google, your data is linked to your account. If you do not wish for your visit to my website to be attributed to your Google account, you must log out of Google before accessing my site. I use Google's service based on my legitimate interest as stated in Article 6, Paragraph 1(f) of the GDPR.

Privacy statements for online meetings, conference calls, and webinars: My website does not offer online meetings, conference calls, or webinars.

Disclosure, Blocking, Correction, Deletion: Upon request, I will provide information about your personal data, its origin, and the purpose of its processing. You may request that I block, correct, or delete any data collected by me. You may also revoke your consent to data processing at any time. Data deletion occurs within the specified period or when the purpose of data processing no longer applies, provided there are no legal obligations to retain the data.

Data Security: I employ the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol to transmit data between your browser and my web server. This ensures that the transmitted data is encrypted and cannot be read by third parties. You can identify whether a website within my online presence is encrypted by the closed lock/key icon displayed in your browser's status bar and by using the web protocol "https://" instead of "http://". In addition, I implement appropriate technological and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction, or unauthorized access by third parties. My security measures are regularly updated in line with technological advancements.

Amendment of this Privacy Policy: I may revise this privacy statement in response to changes in data processing or other circumstances that necessitate such amendments. The most current version of the policy will always be available on this website.

If you have any questions or concerns about the processing of your personal data on my website or this privacy statement, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
