Although my website works without any personal data, an exception here is the IP address, without which the site can not be displayed. If you wish to use a special service on my website (commenting on posts or sending messages to me directly through the contact form), personal data processing may be required. I also use my readers' data for statistical surveys to improve usability and ensure a flawless delivery of the site. However, these surveys are always anonymous and without the assignment to a specific person. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, I generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
Name and address.
Responsible in the sense of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection character are:

I point out that the data transmission in the Internet (eg in the communication by E-Mail) can exhibit security gaps. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.
How do I collect your data?
Your data will be collected on the one hand, that you tell me this. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a comment.
Other data will be collected automatically when visiting the website through my IT systems. These are above all technical data (eg Internet browser, operating system or time of the page request). The collection of this data occurs automatically as soon as you visit my website.
What do I use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure a flawless provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as requests you send to me as a site operator. An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser's address bar changing from "http: //" to "https: //" and the lock icon in the browser bar.
If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to me can not be read by third parties.
You have the right at any time free of charge to obtain information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your personal data stored. You also have a right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact me at any time at this address, as well as other questions about privacy. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority.
Revocation of your consent to data processing.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. For this an informal message by e-mail to me is enough. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
All information, blockages, deletions, etc. can be sent by e-mail or in written form to the above mentioned contact details. For information, blocking, deletion, etc., I need a clear identification of the applicant, who undoubtedly identifies you as the person whose data is involved in the process.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority.
In the case of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. Responsible supervisory authority in data protection questions is the state data protection officer of the federal state, in which I have my seat. A list of the data protection officers as well as their contact data can be taken from the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability.
You have the right to have data, which I process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, delivered to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another person in charge, this will only be done as far as technically feasible.
Information, blocking, deletion.
You have the right to free information on your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, blocking or deletion of these data. You can contact me at any time at this address, as well as for further questions about personal data.
Contradiction against advertising mails.
The use of contact data published in the context of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby rejected. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
My website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make my offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through my website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of my website may be fully usable.
Server log files.
I, or my hosting provider, collects on the basis of my legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f. DSGVO automatically receives data about every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). Access data includes:
- Name of the retrieved website
- File, date and time of retrieval
- transferred amount of data
- Message about successful call
- Browser type and version
- the operating system of the user
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
- IP address (anonymized)
- the requesting provider
Logfile information is stored for security reasons (eg to investigate abusive or fraudulent activities) for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further retention is required for evidential purposes are excluded from the erasure until the final clarification of the incident. There is no merge of this data with other data sources.
I have a contract data processing contract with my hosting provider.
Commentary on the website.
I offer the users on my blog the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts.
If you leave a comment in the published blog, in addition to the comments left by you also information on the time of the comment input as well as the username (pseudonym) chosen by you saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address is made for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties or posts unlawful contents by submitting a comment. The storage of these personal data is therefore in the legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and for my safety, if someone leaves in comments and posts illegal content (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, I myself could be prosecuted for the comment or post and therefore I am interested in the identity of the author. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties, unless such disclosure is not required by law or the legal defense of the controller.
Get profile pictures from Gravatar.
I use the Gravatar service, Automattic, Inc. 132 Hawthorne Street San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, within my blog.
Gravatar is a service that allows users to log in and submit profile pictures and their email addresses. If users with the respective e-mail address on other online sites (especially in blogs) leave posts or comments, so their profile pictures can be displayed next to the posts or comments. For this purpose, the e-mail address communicated by the users to Gravatar is transmitted in encrypted form in order to check whether a profile has been stored for it. This is the sole purpose of sending the e-mail address and it will not be used for other purposes, but will be deleted afterwards.
The use of Gravatar is based on my legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, because with the help of Gravatar I offer the post and comment writers the opportunity to personalize their posts with a profile picture.
Automattic is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000CbqcAAC> ).
By displaying the images, Gravatar has learned the IP address of the users, as this is necessary for communication between a browser and an online service. For more information about Gravatar's collection and use of the data, see the Automattic Privacy Notice: https://automattic.com/privacy/ .
If users do not want a user picture linked to their Gravatar email address to appear in the comments, they should use an email address that is not registered with Gravatar to comment. I also point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous e-mail address if users do not want their own e-mail address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can completely prevent the transfer of data by not using my commenting system.
If you send me inquiries via contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details provided by you (name, e-mail address) will be stored with me for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this an informal message by e-mail to me is enough. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with me until you request me to delete it, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage is omitted (eg after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
This website offers its visitors the possibility to share individual posts on different social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, etc.).
Technically speaking, these are not so-called social plugins, which transfer data of the user already when the page is called, but to mere text links. A data transfer to third-party servers (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, etc.) only takes place when the user clicks on the share buttons and shares the relevant article.
Use and use of Shariff.
I integrated the Shariff component on this website. The Shariff component provides social media buttons that are privacy-compliant. Thus, contributions can be shared in privacy-compliant social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. Shariff was developed for the German computer magazine c't and is published by GitHub, Inc.
Developer of the component is GitHub, Inc. 88 Colin P. Kelly Junior Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
Usually, the button solutions provided by the social networks already transfer personal data to the respective social network when a user visits a website into which a social media button has been integrated. By using the Shariff component, personal data is transmitted to social networks only when the visitor to an Internet site actively activates one of the social media buttons. Further information on the Shariff component is available from the computer magazine c't at http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Datenschutz-und-Social-Media-Der-ct-Shariff-ist-im-Einsatz-2470103. html . The purpose of using the Shariff component is to protect the personal data of visitors to our website and at the same time to enable us to integrate a button solution for social networks on this website.
I have integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform, allowing users to share photos and videos, as well as to redistribute such data across social networks.
The operating company of Instagram's services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up by the controller and an Instagram component (Insta-Button) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned automatically becomes the respective Instagram component causes a representation of the corresponding component of Instagram to be downloaded. As part of this technical process, Instagram is aware of which specific bottom of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is simultaneously logged into Instagram, Instagram recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific subpage the person concerned visits. This information is collected through the Instagram component and assigned through Instagram to the affected person's Instagram account. If the person concerned activates one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and saved and processed by Instagram.
Instagram always receives information via the Instagram component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is simultaneously logged in to Instagram at the time of access to our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram component or not. If such information is not intended to be transmitted to Instagram by the person concerned, the latter can prevent the transmission by logging out of her Instagram account before calling our website.
I have integrated components from Bloglovin on this website. Bloglovin is an online platform that allows users to organize their favorite blogs. A blog is a web-based, usually public-accessible portal in which one or more people who are called bloggers or webloggers, post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts.
Bloglovin's operating company is Bloglovin Inc., 25 Broadway, New York, NY 10004, USA.
Each time you visit one of the pages of this website operated by me and on which a Bloglovin component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Bloglovin component, a representation of the corresponding Bloglovin component to download from Bloglovin. As part of this technical process, Bloglovin gains knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into Bloglovin at the same time, Bloglovin recognizes with each visit to my website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on my website which specific subpage of my website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the Bloglovin component and assigned by Bloglovin to the affected person's Bloglovin account. If the person concerned activates the Bloglovin button integrated on my website, this information will be transmitted to Bloglovin. The data subject has already consented to the transmission of such information to Bloglovin.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze traffic flows on my website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of my website in order to compile for me online reports that show the activities on my website. I am using this information for a user-friendly optimization of my website and for adapting my contributions to the needs and interests of my readers.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
I activated the function IP anonymization on this website. This will result in your IP address being shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the setting of cookies through my website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from putting a cookie on your information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following hyperlink to prevent future detection by Google Analytics within this website: Deactivate Google Analytics (the opt-out only works in the browser and only for this domain ).
I have signed a contract with Google for order data processing and fully implement the requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Use of functions of the collecting society WORT (VG WORD).
I integrated counting pixels on this website. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be performed. The integrated counting pixels serve the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM) of the collecting society WORT (VG word).
The Scalable Central Measurement Method is operated by INFOnline GmbH, Forum Bonn Nord, Brühler Str. 9, 53119 Bonn.
The Scalable Central Measurement Method is used to determine statistical key figures with which the copy probability of texts is calculated. The embedded pixel allows the collecting society WORT to recognize if, when and by how many users (including the data subject) our website has been opened and what content has been retrieved.
The data obtained by means of the Scalable Central Measurement Method are collected anonymously. For the purpose of recognizing the users of a website, a so-called session cookie is set to record the number of accesses, ie a signature is created which is composed of various automatically transmitted information or uses alternative methods. The IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject is only collected and processed in anonymous form. The affected person is never identified.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent INFOnline from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by INFOnline can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to and preventing the data generated by INFOnline relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by INFOnline. To do this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link http://optout.ioam.de , which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set against the objection will be placed on the information technology system used by the data subject. If the cookies on the affected person's system are deleted after an appeal, the data subject must revisit the link and set a new opt-out cookie.
However, by setting the opt-out cookie, there is the possibility that the controller's internet sites may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.
The valid data protection regulations of INFOnline can be accessed at https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz/ .
Use and use features of the Bol.com Partner Program.
As a participant of the Bol.com Affiliate Program, I have integrated Bol.com components on this website. By using the Bol.com components / affiliate program of Bol.com EU, I can generate advertising revenue.
