Your rights

You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details provided:

  • Information about your data stored by me and its processing,
  • correction of incorrect personal data,
  • erasure of your data stored by me,
  • restriction of data processing if I am not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations,
  • objection to the processing of your data by me and

If you have given me your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

You can lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority at any time, e.g. with the competent supervisory authority in the federal state of your place of residence or with the authority responsible for me as the controller.

You can find a list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with addresses at:

Collection of general information when visiting my website

Type and purpose of processing:

When you access my website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, your IP address and similar.

They are processed for the following purposes in particular:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection to the website,
  • ensuring the smooth use of my website,
  • analysing system security and stability and
  • to optimise my website.

I do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by me in anonymised form in order to optimise my website and the technology behind it.

Legal basis and legitimate interest:

Processing is carried out on the basis of my legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of my website.


Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as processors for the operation and maintenance of my website.

Storage period:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally the case for the data used to provide the website when the respective session ends.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after 14 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are anonymised so that it is no longer possible to identify the calling client.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may not be available or may be restricted. For this reason, an objection is excluded.

Contacting me

Type and purpose of processing:

The data you provide will be stored for the purpose of personalised communication with you. This requires you to provide a valid e-mail address and your name. This is used to allocate the enquiry and subsequently answer it. The provision of further data is optional.

Legal basis:

The data provided is processed on the basis of a legitimate interest.

The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

If you contact me to request a quote, the data will be processed to carry out pre-contractual measures.


Recipients of the data may be processors.

Storage period:

Data will be deleted no later than 6 months after the enquiry has been processed.

If there is a contractual relationship, I am subject to the statutory retention periods according to the German Commercial Code (HGB) and delete your data after these periods have expired.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, I can only process your enquiry if you provide me with your name, email address and the reason for the enquiry.

Social plugins

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on my website. You can recognise the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

Under certain circumstances, information, which may also include personal data, is sent to the service provider via these plugins and may be used by them. I prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider by means of a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. I do not collect any personal data myself by means of the social plugins or through their use.

I have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services is established and that at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. It is also possible that the service providers attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged in to the providers listed below at the same time, it must be assumed that these service providers can identify you as a visitor to a specific page.

I have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on my website:


SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, I use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Information about your right to object

Right to object in individual cases

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you. This also applies to profiling based on this provision.

If you object, I will no longer process your personal data unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Amendment of the data protection provisions

I reserve the right to amend this privacy policy so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to my services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy will then apply to your next visit.

Questions about data protection

If you have any questions about data protection, please send me an e-mail or contact me directly.
