From May 25, 2018, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) will also apply in Germany. I have SSL-encrypted my website etc. according to legal requirements, added a DSGVO-compliant cookie notification, newsletter/mail double out option, etc.​


The short version understandable ;)

There are advertisements and links as well as cookies on my website. In order to make your visit to my website and my offers easy to use, a few necessary data are noted by the system or stored. E.g. I get the necessary email address and your name to contact you, after all I want to know who is speaking to me ;)

If you accept them in the settings, the system will receive information that will recognize you later (e.g. blog comments) or simply check which browser you are using. Embarrassing details are not retrieved. Promised. However, you can start my pages without any data and look around.

The cookies/settings are set by Wix, Youtube and social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. You can initially accept them, reject them or ignore them with the x. If you don't react at all or click on the x, the message will return every time you visit the page, but as already mentioned, you can also view my website without consent. Some things might not work that well. As a basic setting, all cookies etc. are deselected, except for the necessary ones.

Advertising includes my own offers, but also recommendations, in the purchase of which I receive a small commission if you order something via the links here. That's why you don't pay a cent more, rather less, because every now and then I'll draw your attention to special offers. For example, I use an affiliate program at Amazon. I hereby distance myself from the content and offers of these linked pages and their offers and cannot assume any responsibility for their content.


Now the official:

General information
The following information on data protection gives a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit my website/my video channel/social media channels. Personal data is all data with which you can personally identify yourself. You will find detailed information on the subject of data protection in the text below in the data protection declaration.

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website provider (Wix) and the website operator (I). You can find the contact details in the imprint.

Data protection
By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing, storage and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as the pages called up or the name of the file called up, the date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes (cookies), without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, are collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis and only for useful purposes. Without your consent, the data will not be passed on to third parties, except for ordering purposes or in the event of legal action. I use your data, which is necessary, only for the respective purpose and nothing more.
Your data is only relevant for the processing of a course booking, order, contact and shipping of the goods (post or e-mail). They are also not used for third-party advertising purposes or the like. Your e-mail address will only be used for necessary and/or desired notifications. It is only used to keep in touch with you, to inform you about the shipping status or, if desired, to inform you about offers or competitions and news. Only necessary data is required for the sweepstakes. If you take part in sweepstakes, you agree that I may publish your name and possibly a profile picture of you on my website (HP, FB...). You have the right to have all of your data deleted at any time and, if you have registered, to unsubscribe from the newsletter.
In short: I use your data, reduced to the essentials, only for contact and processing, but not for unwanted advertising purposes or resale and you can ask for your personal data to be deleted at any time.

How do I collect your data?
Your data is collected, among other things, by the fact that you communicate it to me, for example by entering your email address in the contact form or by using the comment function. Other data is automatically recorded by IT systems when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you visit my website.

Privacy Policy for Cookies
This site uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific, user-related information on the user's device while he is using the website. Cookies make it possible, in particular, to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of the pages, to analyze behavior of page use, but also to make my offer more customer-friendly and individual. Cookies remain stored at the end of a browser session and can be called up again when you visit the site again. If you do not want this, you should set your Internet browser so that it refuses to accept cookies.
If you generally click "I agree/Agree/Okay", you consent to the use of cookies unless you decide to disable them. You can do this yourself manually via Settings - Security/Privacy - Cookies. There you can delete all cookies or individually. You have a choice on my side. When you visit my website, you will receive a cookie/GDPR notification below. It will appear until you either accept, set or reject the cookies etc.
Please note that you may experience disruptions or limited functionality in some areas of my website if you delete or deactivate cookies.

Protection of your data by third parties
In order to be able to offer my customers information, bookings, book purchases and personal contact, I use this website, which my readers and participants can use to contact me. This may include registration for processing. I cannot and will not take any responsibility for "data leaks".
I may work with guest posts, recommendations, etc. I expressly distance myself from the content, rules and data protection regulations of the links and/or partners and other blogs given here. Facebook etc. have their own data protection rules, which I hereby point out and also point out that I cannot accept any responsibility for them.
My website is SSL-protected or encrypted. Your data transmitted to me will therefore be transmitted in encoded/encrypted form.

What do I use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided without errors. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior (how long have you been visiting, what is your favorite site, what country are you from...). Furthermore, I need the data you have provided to contact me, to place an order/booking or to send you a newsletter, which, as already mentioned, you can unsubscribe at any time without any problems can.

What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact me at any time at the address given in the imprint or via the contact form if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. However, there is nothing wrong with speaking to me beforehand ;)

I take 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. Exceptions are competitions and your possible contributions in the guest book, on FB pages or similar.
If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data I collect and what I use it 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.

Responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

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. An informal message by e-mail is sufficient for this. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which my company is based.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that I process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.

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, this site uses an 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 you send to me cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time. You can contact me at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.

Objection to advertising mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published as part of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising being sent, such as spam e-mails. Of course, this does not include applications or requests for a free review copy.

Data collection on my website
If you send me inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by me or in the system I use for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. I will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to me is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with me until you ask me to delete them, 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 retention periods - remain unaffected.
