This website and all business processes are designed in such a way to ensure that as little personal data as possible is collected and processed. Personal data is only collected, processed and stored to the extend necessary for providing my services and fulfilling contractual and legal requirements. Inquiries and information received as part of an order will be treated confidentially.
1. Data protection at a glance
The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit this website. Personal data is all data with which you can be personally identified. Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found below.
It is important to me to treat your data with respect beyond the digital world as well. For example, I don’t work in the public W-LAN of cafés or train stations. I do not open any files with customer data on the train, neither online or offline. And I do not upload your texts online to translation apps which store the information.

3. General information and mandatory information
The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. I treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data is collected and what it is used for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens. I would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e. g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Telefon: +49 151 54674341
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e. g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Unless a specific storage period is specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with me until the purpose for data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless there are other legally permissible reasons for the storage of your personal data (e. g. tax or commercial retention periods); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons have ceased to exist.
General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
If you have consented to data processing, I will process your personal data on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR, if special data categories according to Article 9 (1) GDPR are processed. In the event of express consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also based on Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or access to information on your end device (e. g. via device fingerprinting), data processing is also based on Section 25 (1) TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. If your data is required to fulfill the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, I process your data on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. Furthermore, I process your data if it is required to fulfill a legal obligation on the basis of Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.
Data processing can also take place on the basis of a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. F GDPR. The following paragraphs of this data protection declaration provide information on the relevant legal bases in each individual case.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent that you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and against direct mail (Art. 21 GDPR)
If the data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons that arise from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, I will no longer process your affected personal data unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (Objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data is processed in order to operate direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, those affected have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to be handed-over – to yourself or a selected third party – any data of yours that I have collected based on your consent or automatically in performance of a contract process. This data must then be provided in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to receive information about your stored personal data free of charge. This includes the origin, recipient and purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or deletion of this data. You can contact me at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact me at any time about this. The right to the restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by me, I usually need time to check this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
- If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If I no longer need your personal data but you need it to exercise or to defend rights or to enforce legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted instead of being deleted.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, your interests and my interests must be weighed up. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be used with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to me as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from http:// to https:// and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
4. Data collection on this website
This website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small data packages and do not damage your end device. They are stored on your end device either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies).
Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
Cookies can be set by my website (first-party cookies) or by third-party companies (so-called third-party cookies). Third-party cookies enable the integration of certain services offered by third-party companies within websites (e. g. cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have different functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e. g. the shopping cart function on the display of videos). Other cookies can be used to evaluate user behavior or for advertising purposes.
Cookies, to carry out the electronic communication process, to provide certain functions you want (e. g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e. g. cookies for measuring the web audience) are required (necessary cookies), on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is given.
The operator of this website has a legitimate interest in the storage of necessary cookies in order to provide an optimized and error-free service. Once you have been asked for your consent to storage of cookies and comparable recognition technologies, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 Para. 1 TTDSG); the consent can be revoked at any time.
The following cookies are used on this website:
- Essential: Polylang
Polylang is a multi-language system for WordPress websites. The cookie store the language of the user and can redirect him/her to the version of the website that corresponds to the language of the user’s browser. The cookie remembers, so to speak, whether you have selected German, English or Polish as the display language. So you don’t have to choose which language you prefer every time you visit.
- Essential: Real Cookie Banner
Real Cookie Banner asks website visitors for their consent to set cookies and process personal data. For this purpose, each website visitor is assigned a UUID (pseudonymous identification of the user), which is valid until the cookie used to store the consent expires. The Real Cookie Banner cookies are used to check whether cookies may be set, to save the reference to the documented consent, to save which services from which service groups the visitor has consented to, and, if consent is obtained under the Transparency & Consent Framework (TCF), to store the consents in TCF partners, purposes, special purposes, functions and special functions. In accordance with GDPR, the consent given is fully documented. If consent is obtained according to the TFC standard so that it is clear to which TCF-partners, purposes and functions the visitor has consented, this includes services and service groups to which the visitor has consented as well as all settings of the cookie banner from the time of consent, technical circumstances (e. g. size of the viewing area from the time of consent) and the user interactions (e. g. clicking on buttons) that led to the consent. Consent is collected once per language.
- Essential: VG WORT
VG WORT uses a tracking pixel to measure access to texts in order to record the copy probability of the text. The authors of this website thus participate in the distributions of the VG WORT, which ensure the legal remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with § 53 UrhG. For this purpose, session cookies from VG WORT, Munich, are set on this website. Session cookies are small pieces of information that a provider stores in the memory of the visitor’s computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. A cookie also contains information about its origin and the storage period. Session cookies can not store any other data. These measurements are carried out by Kantar Germany GmbH according to the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM). They help to determine the copy probability of individual texts to compensate authors and publishers for legal claims. Personal information is not collected through these cookies.
- Functional: Google Fonts
Google Fonts are used on this website. However, these are not loaded from the Google server, but from my web hosting in Germany, i. e. locally. Google Fonts is a service that downloads and embeds fonts into the website that are not installed on the user’s client device. No cookies are set on the user’s client device in the technical sense, but technical and personal data such as the IP address are transmitted from the client to the service provider’s server in order to enable the use of the service.
- Functional: Comments
WordPress is a contend management system which offers the possibility to write comments under posts and similar content. The cookie stores a commenter’s name, email address and website to show them again when the commenter wants to post another comment on that website. The operator of the website has deactivated the comment function. However, since the function is loaded by default in WordPress, this explanation is provided.
- Functional: Emojis
WordPress Emoji is an emoji set loaded from wordpress.org. No cookies are set on the user’s client device in the technical sense, but technical and personal data such as the IP address are transmitted from the client to the service provider’s server in order to enable the use of the service. However, since the function is loaded by default in WordPress, this explanation is provided.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to me. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referred URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of server request
- IP address
- Mail logs if you email me
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is collected on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The operator of this website has a legitimate interest in the optimization of this website and a presentation free from errors. To do this, the server log files must be recorded.
Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact me by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request will result in the storage of personal data (name, request) for the purpose of processing your request. I will not pass on this data without your consent.
This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on my legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to me (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The data you send me via contact requests will remain with me until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e. g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
5. Plugins and tools
Prosodia VGW OS
This plugin is used to record how often a certain text on the website has been read and/or copied (so-called counters). This gives authors of online texts the opportunity to have their texts remunerated by a German collecting society called VG WORT after a certain number of hits. As a visitor, you remain anonymous, do not receive any advertising and do not have to pay anything.
This website and the mobile website uses the “Scalable Central Measurement Method” (SZM) from Kantar Germany GmbH to determine statistical parameters regarding the copy probability of texts. Anonymous measurements are collected. The access number measurement alternatively uses a session cookie or signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser, to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in an anonymous form. The process was developed with data protection in mind. The only aim of the procedure is to determine the copy probability of individual texts. At no time are individual users identified. Your identity is always protected. You will not receive any advertising through this system.
I have concluded an order processing contract (AVV) with my web host for the use of the above-mentioned service. This is a contract required by data protection law, in which the web host undertakes to process the personal data of visitors to this website in compliance with GDPR.
