Sessions cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Through these cookies, I can recognize your browser on the next visit. I use so-called "tracking cookies" that allow other providers, e.g. Google, or Facebook, to track your Internet activity across multiple sites. Detailed information on the use of tracking cookies can be found below in this data protection statement in the description of the respective providers. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.

I will not forward this data without your consent.

4. Newsletter For the subscription to my newsletter, I use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that I will send you a confirmation email to the specified email address, after giving your email address, in which I ask you for confirmation that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm this within 24 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted. If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, I will save your email address until you unsubscribe. The sole purpose of this storage is to send you the newsletter. In addition, each time when registering and confirming, I store your IP addresses and the times of access to prevent misuse of your personal data. You may revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletters at any time via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter, via my website or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint. I would like to inform you that I am evaluating your user behavior when sending out the newsletters. For this evaluation, the emails sent include so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels. These are one-pixel image files that link to my website and allow me to evaluate your user behavior. This is done by collecting the following data: - IP-address - Date and time of a request - Time zone difference to the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) - Content of a request (specific webpage) - Access status / http-status-code - Transferred data volume - Website, from where a request is made - Browser - Operating System and system surface - Language and version of your browser-software. as well as web beacons, which are assigned to your e-mail address and are linked with their own ID. The information collected in this way is stored by the newsletter provider on his server in [France]. You can always deny this tracking any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email, or by informing me via contact details below. This type of tracking is also not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, the newsletter will not be displayed in full and you may not be able to use all the features. If you display the images manually, the above tracking is performed.
