General privacy notice
In general, use of this website is possible without providing personal information. Where personal data is required, the provision of your information is on a voluntary basis. I collect personal data in accordance with the legal provisions of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). I will not pass your information to third parties nor use it for promotional purposes without your express consent. I would like to point out that data transmission via the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from unauthorised access by third parties cannot be guaranteed. Use of the contact details published under the duty to provide a legal notice for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information materials is expressly prohibited. I reserve the right to take legal action in the case of unsolicited advertising or spamming.
Use of social plugins
This website uses various “social plugins”, e.g. for Facebook (facebook.com), Twitter (twitter.com) and Google Plus (plus.google.com) to enable visitors to this website to communicate via these platforms and to optimise the web presence of this website. These plugins are represented as images and are clearly recognisable from the providers’ logos or lettering. When you visit my website these plugins directly connect with these companies’ servers. The plugins communicate directly with your browser and transfer data, such as your IP address and device-related data, to the social networks’ service providers. I therefore have no control over what, how and to what extent data is collected and passed to third parties. By clicking on these images you share content from my website with other users via these social networks. By sharing my website and/or its content, it is possible that you will transmit data to these companies, where it may be stored. Even without directly clicking on a plugin, it is possible that data such as your IP address will be stored if you are logged in to a social network when you are viewing my website. To avoid this, please log out of the social network before visiting my website. For details of the extent of the data collected, please contact the social network company directly. Browser providers offer a variety of add-ons that can prevent data collection. Due to the large number of companies, plugins, add-ons and browsers, it is not possible for me to put together a comprehensive overview of addresses, contact details and types of programs. If you have any questions, please contact me on the telephone number or email address provided above.
