The responsible person decides about the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names and contact details).

Revocation of your consent for data processing

Some data process operations are only possible with your expressed consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. An informal notification by email is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority in the event of a data protection violation.

Right to data transfer

You have the right to have the data, that I process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or third parties. For this, I will provide the data in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

Right to information, correction, blocking and/or deletion

You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, the right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions. In this regard and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact me at any time using the contact options listed in the imprint.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the data that´s being sent to me as the site operator, my website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that third parties cannot read your data that you transmit via this website. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https: //" address line of your browser and by the lock symbol in the browser line.

Data collection

Server log files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores the informations that your browser transmits automatically in server log files. These informations are:

  • Visited pages on my domain
  • Date & Time of the server request
  • Browser type & browser version
  • Used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • IP address

This data won't be merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.


I use Hotjar to understand my visitors' needs better and to optimize the experience with my website. Hotjar is a technology service that helps me to understand my visitors' experience better (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click or what they do and don't like), which enables me to build and maintain my website with user feedback.
Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on the visitors' behaviour and their devices. This includes a device's IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language. Hotjar stores this information on my behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on my behalf.

For further details, please see the ‘about Hotjar’ section of Hotjar’s support site.


My website uses cookies, which are small text files that your web browser stores on your device.
Cookies help me to make my website more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Some cookies are "session cookies". These cookies are deleted automatically after ending your browser session. In contrast, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them manually. Such cookies help me to recognize you, when you decide to return to my website.

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers are configurable so that cookies get deleted automatically when you close the program. Deactivating cookies can result in limited functionality of my website. The setting of cookies, which are necessary for electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions (e.g. shopping cart), takes place based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

As the operator of this website, I have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of my services. Other cookies (e.g. for analytic functions) are treated separately in this privacy policy.


My website uses YouTube plug-ins to integrate and display video content.
The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When you access a page with an integrated YouTube plug-in, it'll establish a connection to the YouTube servers. This tells YouTube which of my sites you are visiting. YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour directly to your profile when you are logged into your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand.

I use YouTube in the interest of an attractive presentation of my website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can find details about the handling of user data in YouTube's data protection declaration at

XING Plugin

My website uses functions of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
When calling up a page with integrated Xing functions, it'll establish a connection to the Xing servers. As far as I know, personal data will be saved. IP addresses are not collected & user behaviour isn't monitored.

You can find details about data processing and the XING share button in XING's data protection declaration at

Google Analytics

My website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses "cookies." These are small text files that your web browser saves on your device and enable an analysis of your website usage. The information generated by these cookies will be transmitted to a Google server. The server location is usually the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are set based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website, I have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behaviour to optimize my website.

IP anonymization

I use Google Analytics in connection with the IP anonymization function. This ensures that Google shortens your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory countries before it's being transmitted to the USA.
There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there.

On my behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to create reports on the website activity and to provide other services related to this website. There is no merging of the IP address transmitted by Google Analytics with other Google data happening.

Browser plug-in

The setting of cookies by your web browser is preventable. However, some functions of my website could be restricted. You can also prevent the collection of data regarding your website usage, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google.
This is possible by downloading and installing this browser plug-in:

Objection to data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the collection of your data on future visits to my website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
You can find further details about the handling of user data by Google Analytics in Google's data protection declaration:

Contract about the data processing

To fully meet the legal data protection requirements, I have a contract with Google about the data processing.

Demographics in Google Analytics

My website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics.
This function is used to create reports that contain information about the age, gender and interests of my website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person.

You can deactivate this function at any time. Either via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section "Objection to data collection".

Fonts & Sources

Google Web Fonts

My website uses web fonts from Google. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Through the usage of these web fonts, I can present my website the way I intend to, regardless of which fonts are available locally. This is done by accessing the Google Web Fonts from a Google server in the USA and the associated transfer of your data to Google. This is your IP address and which pages you have visited.

Google Web Fonts are used based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
As the operator of this website, I have a legitimate interest in the optimal presentation and transmission of my website.

The company Google is certified for the US-European data protection convention "Privacy Shield". This data protection agreement ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
