Privacy Policy

Stand: 07.04.2024

I. Definitions

This data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as for the visitors to my website. To ensure this, I would like to first explain the terminology used.

In this data protection declaration, I use, inter alia, the following terms:

a) personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). An identifiable natural person can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

a) data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

a) processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

a) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data to limit their processing in the future.

e) Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

a) Pseudonomisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

a) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

The controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

h) Processor

A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry by Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall comply with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

j) Dritter

The third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

k) Consent

Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him

III. Collection of general data and information

This website collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be

  1. the browser types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system reaches this website (so-called referrers),
  4. the sub-websites,
  5. the date and time of access to the Internet site,
  6. an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
  8. Any similar data and information may be used during attacks on my information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, I do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to

  1. deliver the content of this website correctly,
  2. optimize the content of my website as well as its advertisement,
  3. ensure the long-term viability of my information technology systems and website technology, and
  4. provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.

Therefore, I analyze anonymously collected data and information statistically, to increase the data protection and security of my website, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the data are processed. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

3.1. Cookies

Cookies / Session Storage / Local Storage

This website uses cookies, local storage and session storage. This is to make my offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Local and session storage is a technology used by your browser to store data on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser. You can prevent the use of cookies, local storage and session storage by setting them in your browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, I can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

Using a cookie, the information and offers on this website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow, as previously mentioned, to recognize my website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize my website. The website user that uses cookies e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through my website using a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of my website may be entirely usable.

3.1.1 Allgemeine Cookies

3.5 Your Comments on posts

Comments can be made on individual contributions. This allows a discussion of the post. For security reasons and to avoid massive spam, you must enter a name and your e-mail address to enable communication with you as the commenter. The name you enter will be displayed in the comment. It is possible to enter a pseudonym. Your details will only be used to contact you regarding your comment and any further communication with you resulting from it. For example, I may write to you, taking your and my interests into account, if I think your comment is particularly good or worth discussing or if you ask me to contact you personally via a comment.

I must approve comments before publication. I reserve the right not to approve comments, but to delete them directly, especially if the comments are without substantial content or contain discriminatory, racist, offensive or advertising content. I can also delete approved and published comments at a later date, for example, if it turns out that the comment conveys an advertising message. Upon request, I will delete approved and published comments immediately.

The IP addresses of the comments are anonymized directly when they are sent before they are saved.

3.6 Communication via Email

If you contact me by e-mail, your e-mail address will be collected for technically necessary reasons and thus out of legitimate interest. The same applies if I write to you and have received your e-mail address either from you or from a public or authorized source.

Your e-mail address and the content of your e-mail will not be passed on to third parties, unless this is required for the occasion, requested or explicitly authorized by you, or unless this results from another legal provision.

I delete e-mails received after a few months if they are no longer required or if the last communication has already ended several months ago and there is no prospect of continuing the communication. I also delete emails earlier if they are irrelevant, have become irrelevant or a justified request for deletion has been made.

IV. How long will your data be stored?

The data processed by me will be processed, deleted or its processing restricted by me by Art. 17 and Art. 18 DSGVO. As a matter of principle, I store your personal data, which is generated during the use of this website, only as long as this is necessary for the above-mentioned purposes. However, if the deletion conflicts with legal retention obligations, the processing of the data will only be restricted, i.e. they will be blocked for further use and cannot be processed for other purposes.

The following record and retention obligations are particularly relevant: 6 years by Section 257 (1) HGB (for commercial books, inventories, opening balances, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting vouchers, etc.), 10 years by Section 147 (1) AO (books, records, accounting vouchers, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.). In addition, personal data may be retained for the period during which claims may be asserted against me (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).

V. What do I process your data for (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

I process the data that is collected when you visit this website or use the contact options offered by the provisions of the GDPR and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Depending on the matter for which you contact me via the website, there are different legal bases for this. The specific legal basis for data processing depends on the context and the purpose for which I receive your data. As a rule, the legal basis for data processing results from the following options

Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which I require your consent for a specific processing purpose. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which you are a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR.

If I am subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 c GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis. Art. 6 Abs. 1 f DSGVO beruhen. Auf dieser Rechtsgrundlage basieren Verarbeitungsvorgänge, die von keiner der vorgenannten Rechtsgrundlagen erfasst werden, wenn die Verarbeitung zur Wahrung meines berechtigten Interesses oder eines Dritten erforderlich ist, sofern die Interessen, Grundrechte und Grundfreiheiten des Betroffenen nicht überwiegen.

VI. Disclosure of your personal data to third parties

IP addresses are automatically transmitted to the server where the website is operated when you visit a website. A transfer of these IP addresses to third parties inevitably occurs whenever a third-party component (a script, an image, a font, or any other digital resource) is embedded on the website. Which components embedded on this website is listed in this privacy policy. The recipients of your IP address or categories of recipients can also be derived from this.

A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. I will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent by Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR
  • the disclosure is necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
  • if there is a legal obligation for disclosure according to Art. 6 (1) c GDPR, as well as
  • this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para.1 b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

Quelle: dr-dsgvo.de

VII. Which data protection rights do you have?

You have the right to:

  • by Art. 15 GDPR to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed and to request information about your personal data processed by me. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it was not collected from me, as well as the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;
  • by Art. 16 GDPR, to immediately request the correction of incorrect or completion of your personal data stored by me;
  • under Art. 17 GDPR, to request the deletion of your personal data stored by me, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • according to Art. 18 GDPR, 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 object to its erasure and I no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing according to Art. 21 GDPR;
  • according to Art. 20 GDPR, to receive your personal data that you have provided to me in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller;
  • by Art. 7 (3) GDPR, to revoke your consent once given to me at any time. This has the consequence that I may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent in the future; and
  • according to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or place of work or the place of the alleged infringement for this purpose, if the data subject believes that the processing of personal data concerning him or her violates the GDPR.

If you have concluded your personal data has been misused in any way, please contact the controller of the respective service or website first to clear up any misunderstandings or ambiguities..

If these efforts are unsuccessful and the matter cannot be resolved, you also can contact the competent supervisory authority. For more information, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information: Bundesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit (BfDI) In Berlin, where I am based, the following local data protection authority is responsible:

Berlin Data Protection Authority (Datensschutzbehörde Berlin)

7.1 Revocation of your consent

Consent that has been provided can be revoked at any time. You will find cancellation options at the relevant point (e.g. for the newsletter or where consent is given). If you do not find a consent request (often referred to as a "cookie banner"), no processes on the website are legitimated by this.

Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.

VIII. Links to other websites

My website contains links to third-party websites (e.g. Wikipedia). If you follow a link to any of the websites outside my responsibility, please note that these websites have their privacy policies and that I do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these privacy policies when you submit any personal data to these websites voluntarily.

Only when you click on an external link the data will be transferred to the link source.

This is technically necessary due to the protocol on which the Internet is based (TCP – Transfer Control Protocol). The transmitted data are in particular: Your IP address, the time you clicked on the link, the page on which you clicked, and other information mentioned under Paragraph II No. 1 of this notice.

Please note: clicking on individual links may involve a transfer of data to third parties. Third parties, e.g. authorities, may receive connection data.

If you do not want the data mentioned to be transferred to the link destination or to the third parties mentioned or to be accessed by others, do not click on the link.

IX. Other plugins and necessary tools

9.1 Data protection & security

9.1.1 GDPR Cookie Compliance Plugin

To fulfil the complex data protection regulations I keep an eye on my and your interests as a visitor to my website. I use the mentioned plugin. This plugin provides you with the following options:

Cookie Notice
When you visit my website, a pop-up asks you, as on (almost) every website, to either give or refuse the cookie consent required under data protection law. You have an overview of all cookies. As a visitor to my website, you decide whether and which scripts and cookies you allow or disallow.

Your data as a user is anonymized.

Proof of consent::
If personal data is processed based on consent, this must also be verifiable (following Article 7 GDPR) Artikel 7 DSGVO).

9.1.2 SSL and TLS encryption

SSL stands for "Secure Socket Layer" and TLS stands for "Transport Layer Security". Both are encryption protocols for the transport layer of the Internet. Their task is to encrypt the data flows between client and server and protect the transmission of sensitive data.

A website with HTTPS in the address bar uses TLS/SSL encryption.

HTTPS means "Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure", which translates as "Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol". It is an improved version of the HTTP protocol for communication between web browsers (web clients) and web servers.

The most important aspects of HTTPS:

Encrypted communication:

HTTPS encrypts the data transfer between the web browser and the web server. This prevents unauthorized third parties from intercepting the communication, e.g. by reading WLAN network traffic.

Authentication of the web server:

At the start of communication, the web server sends a certificate to the web browser.

This certificate confirms the authenticity of a domain to combat fraud through fake websites.

Data protection by design (Article 25(1) GDPR) is thus ensured. TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, ensures the protection of confidential data.

9.1.3 Security Optimizer by SiteGround

The "Security Optimizer by SiteGround" plugin takes useful and sometimes indispensable precautions to ensure the security of the website and thus also the security of any personal data:

a) Comparison of the user's IP address with the list of known attackers.

This involves checking whether the user is identical to an attacker from the list to immediately and irrevocably exclude them from using this site. The comparison works locally on my server; no IP addresses are forwarded to external servers. The user's IP address is not stored.

b) Local brute force protection

The access point for editing my website is concealed and typically only accessible to the website operator and administrators. This access is monitored and logged, particularly in cases of incorrect login attempts or efforts to obtain access by repeatedly testing passwords (known as the "brute force method"). Any unauthorized access attempts are recorded in my database along with the IP address for 7 days, after which they are deleted. Multiple unauthorized access attempts will store and block the IP address beyond the period of 7 days.

This plugin protects this site from technical attacks and access attempts by third parties. This ensures the security of the entire website and the stability of my server, and any personal data processed elsewhere remains protected. The IP addresses used for the check are only used for this purpose. This purpose also constitutes a legitimate interest in the processing of IP addresses by Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

9.1.4 Friendly Captcha

Friendly Captcha is a tool to prevent spam on my website.

Friendly Captcha is a proof-of-work-based anti-bot solution where the user's device does all the work. A unique crypto puzzle is generated for each visitor.

The anti-bot service does not store any personal data of end users. No cookies are used. By default, requests are processed at the point of presence closest to where the end-user accesses it.

The following log data is collected:

  • The request headers User Agent, Origin and Referer.
  • The puzzle contains information about the account and the site key to which it refers.
  • The version of the widget.
  • A timestamp

An anonymized counter per IP address is collected for the dynamic difficulty of puzzles on the Edge network to detect malicious users and minimize the blocking of legitimate users. This data is stored completely separately from the rest of the data and cannot be associated with specific websites or similar. IP addresses are anonymized with a one-way hash of certain values. You cannot be personally identified.

I have a legitimate interest in protecting my website web offers from abusive automated spying and SPAM. The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

9.1.5 LiteSpeed Cache

This site utilises caching to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary. We may use QUIC. cloud services to process & cache your data temporarily. Please see for more details: https://quic.cloud/privacy-policy/ 

9.2 Social Media Elemente

On my website, I offer you the possibility to use so-called "social media buttons". To protect your data, you will only find the buttons that are linked to the corresponding networks. If you click on such a button, you will be redirected to the corresponding page of the social network, just as you are used to from normal links. Only at this moment does the provider of the social network receive information about you, e.g. your IP address. If you do not click on such a button, no data will be transmitted. Information about the collection and use of your data on social network pages can be found in the relevant terms of use of the respective provider.

If you click on the social media logos or other services on my site, the respective provider or service now receives the information that you have visited my website with your IP address. If you are logged into your respective social media account (e.g. Instagram) at the same time, your visit to my website can be assigned to your user account.

By actively clicking (activation), a direct connection to the server of the service or provider is established and constitutes consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG.

X. Changes to this privacy policy

This privacy policy can change if the legal situation, this online offer or the type of data collection changes. However, this only applies to statements on data processing. If the user's consent is required or if components of the data protection declaration contain a regulation of the contractual relationship with users, the data protection declaration will only be changed with the user's consent.

Therefore, please inform yourself about this data protection declaration especially if you provide personal data.

XI. Addendum

First and foremost, the data protection texts come from the GDPR AIO plugin, the function of which I have already explained. I have adapted the existing texts according to my needs.

The data protection texts provided by https://dr-dsgvo.de were a great help. Even though Dr DSGVO offers the use of his texts, I have only used a few extracts and/or modified the texts accordingly. I have placed a link to his website under the respective passages. Visit his website for exciting topics on data protection, which do not only consist of data protection regulations for websites.

I have taken several data protection notices from the privacy policies and guidelines of the individual providers and services and linked them accordingly.

You are welcome to use this data protection notice in German and English for your website. However, I expressly point out that this is done at your own risk and should be checked for accuracy. You are responsible for the information you publish on your website.
