Like many other websites, I use so-called ‘cookies’. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit my website.
With cookies, my website temporarily receives certain information such as the type of browser and operating system used.
Cookies cannot be used to start programmes or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, I can facilitate your navigation of my site and properly display my webpages for you.
The data collected by my site will not be shared with third parties under any circumstances nor will a link to personal data be created without your consent.
(Note: These cookies used on my site are essential first-party session cookies from the content management system itself, which do not require your consent since they do not access, collect, or retain any personal information. These cookies expire once you leave my site or close your browser window.)
In your browser settings, you can delete individual cookies or the entire set of cookies. You will also find information and instructions on how to delete these cookies or prevent them from being saved in advance.

The data you enter are used for individual communication with you and nothing else. A valid email address is required for this communication, which serves to organise your inquiry and the respective subsequent reply. Providing additional information is optional.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form occurs on the basis of a legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR).
By providing the contact form, my aim is to facilitate an uncomplicated means for you to contact me. The information you enter will be used to process the inquiry and saved for possible follow-up questions.
If you contact me to request an offer (even though I don't offer anything!), the processing of the information provided in the contact form will occur in order to implement pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) GDPR).
Recipients of the data may be processors.
The data will be deleted no later than 6 months after processing the inquiry.
Provided that we enter into a contract together, we will use the statutory retention periods in the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch) and I will delete your data according to the respective stipulated deadlines.
The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, I can only process your inquiry if you provide me with your email address and the reason for your inquiry.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, I use state-of-the-art encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS.
