Notes on Privacy
(translated from German to English by «translate.google.com») :p
With the exception of the newsletter (see below), the owner of this website does not itself collect, store or process any personal data resulting from the use of this website and in this context also does not disclose any personal data.
Due to the unified and extremely tightened data protection laws valid in the European Union from 25 May 2018, which are rather (and with good reason) made for large corporations (which are so eager for our data), but make life really difficult for small companies and «lone fighters» (besides other diverse bureaucratic monsters), I must point out that among other things, here implanted and helpful online services such as Google Analytics or YouTube (for embedded videos) can process and collect user-related data (but I tried to prevent as much as possible by activating tougher privacy settings there). Please refer to the explanatory information below.
This privacy statement explains the nature, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data (hereinafter referred to as «data») within our online offer and the related websites, functions and content as well as external online presence, such as our social media profile. (collectively referred to as «online offer»). With regard to the terms used, such as «processing» or «responsible», we refer to the definitions in Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter referred to as the «newsletter») only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. Incidentally, our newsletter contains information about our services and us.
– Double-Opt-In and logging: Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means you will receive an e-mail after logging in to ask for confirmation of your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider will be logged.

Newsletter – shipping service provider
The shipping service provider may use the data of the recipient in a pseudonymous form, ie without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services, eg for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass the data on to third parties.
Newsletter – Success Measurement
The newsletters contain a so-called «web beacon», ie a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server when the newsletter is opened by our server or, if we use a shipping service provider. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval.
This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our goal nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
