The author takes privacy and the protection of personal data seriously. If personal data is required for particular services, the input can be made by choice as best as possible and with the minimal data required. A complete protection without security holes can unfortunately never be guaranteed when transmitting data over the internet. All included external content that might enable tracking is deactivated until you explicitly enable it by clicking on it (2 click solution).
Exceptions to these terms are unpredictable events like a hacker attack on the provider or any other non-knowing propagation through the provider or another person or system.

The use of certain services may involve so-called cookies. They serve the purpose of exchanging little pieces of information between your computer and the provider server automatically. This is needed for example when logging into a service and creating a session.
Server log files
The provider of this presence collects and saves automatically some information in log files that are transmitted during the communication between your browser and the provider server. This includes browser information, referrer, request time and hostname of the accessing computer. This data cannot be associated with a specific person and a cross-reference with data from other sources is not performed. This data will only be checked in case a law infringement was detected or reported and in the course of that investigation the data may be made available to others.
If you make requests using the contact form, all supplied information will be passed to the author for further handling and only be saved for this purpose. The data will not be relayed to a third party without your permission.
If you receive a newsletter, the necessary information like your email address is stored. When you opt in, you will be asked to comply. This agreement can be revoked by clicking on a link to opt out or by sending a respective request using the contact form. Due to technical and organisational reasons, the opt-out process may not be effective immediately so that the process may not be finished until the next newsletter is sent.
