Privacy policy

Responsible for data protection, particularly around European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): Jens Oliver Meiert.

Your rights

Using the contact data provided you can at any time exercise the following rights:

  • information about your data stored with us as well as the processing thereof,
  • correction of inaccurate personal data,
  • deletion of your data stored with us,
  • restriction of data processing when legal requirements prohibit to delete your data,
  • objection against the processing of your data, and
  • data portability if you agreed to the processing of your data or entered a contract with us.

You can at any time revoke your consent.

You can also at any time file a complaint with the supervisory authority in charge. You can find a list of addresses for respective authorities in the European Commission’s overview of national data protection authorities.

Purposes of data processing

We process any personally identifiable information only to the purposes listed in this policy. There’s no transfer of your personal data other than for the purposes mentioned. We transfer any of your personal data only if:

  • you gave your express consent,
  • the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract with you,
  • the processing is necessary to fulfill other legal obligations,
  • the processing serves the meeting of justified interests while there’s no reason to assume that you have a greater protection-worthy interest in your data not being transferred.

Deletion or detention of data

We adhere to the principles of data reduction and frugality. We only store data for as long as it’s necessary for the purposes mentioned or as legal retention periods require. Once purposes or retention periods cease to apply, the data get blocked or removed pursuant to the applicable legal provisions.


For data protection reasons your data are transferred over HTTPS.

Server logs

The hosting provider of this website (DreamHost) collects and stores some information transferred by your browser in so called server log files. This information includes:

  • host name
  • IP address
  • operating system
  • browser
  • referrer URL
  • time of server request

We’re currently checking whether we have a valid data processing agreement with DreamHost, requiring DreamHost to protect our users’ data and not hand over data to third parties.

The data are not combined or merged with other sources of data.

Processing of the data happens pursuant to Art. 6 ¶ 1 lit. f GDPR, allowing the processing of data for the purposes of contractual compliance.

In the server statistics available to us, IP addresses are anonymized and all log files get deleted after 30 days.


The content management system of this website uses cookies. It’s not necessary for you to directly access this system, however, and neither are you authorized to do so. Therefore, this section only serves to inform you if for whatever reason you still do.

Cookies are little files transferred from a server of a website to your computer. They may contain certain data like your IP address, operation system, or browser.

Unless you use the system in an unlawful fashion, any such data collected by us are neither without your consent linked with personally identifiable information nor transferred to third parties.

The use of cookies can be prevented through your browser settings. Your browser’s documentation contains information about changing these settings.
