Privacy Policy

Per­son­al data (usu­ally referred to just as “data” below) will only be pro­cessed by us to the extent neces­sary and for the pur­pose of provid­ing a func­tion­al and user-friendly web­site, includ­ing its con­tents, and the ser­vices offered there.

Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Reg­u­la­tion (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (here­in­after referred to as the “GDPR”), “pro­cessing” refers to any oper­a­tion or set of oper­a­tions such as col­lec­tion, record­ing, organ­iz­a­tion, struc­tur­ing, stor­age, adapt­a­tion, alter­a­tion, retriev­al, con­sulta­tion, use, dis­clos­ure by trans­mis­sion, dis­sem­in­a­tion, or oth­er­wise mak­ing avail­able, align­ment, or com­bin­a­tion, restric­tion, eras­ure, or destruc­tion per­formed on per­son­al data, wheth­er by auto­mated means or not.

The fol­low­ing pri­vacy policy is inten­ded to inform you in par­tic­u­lar about the type, scope, pur­pose, dur­a­tion, and leg­al basis for the pro­cessing of such data either under our own con­trol or in con­junc­tion with oth­ers. We also inform you below about the third-party com­pon­ents we use to optim­ize our web­site and improve the user exper­i­ence which may res­ult in said third parties also pro­cessing data they col­lect and con­trol.

Our pri­vacy policy is struc­tured as fol­lows:

I. Inform­a­tion about us as con­trol­lers of your data
II. The rights of users and data sub­jects
III. Inform­a­tion about the data pro­cessing

I. Information about us as controllers of your data

The party respons­ible for this web­site (the “con­trol­ler”) for pur­poses of data pro­tec­tion law is:

Dr. Markus Wal­ch­shofer
Max-Born-Straße 1
60438 Frank­furt am Main

II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data pro­cessing to be described in more detail below, users and data sub­jects have the right

  • to con­firm­a­tion of wheth­er data con­cern­ing them is being pro­cessed, inform­a­tion about the data being pro­cessed, fur­ther inform­a­tion about the nature of the data pro­cessing, and cop­ies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
  • to cor­rect or com­plete incor­rect or incom­plete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
  • to the imme­di­ate dele­tion of data con­cern­ing them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, altern­at­ively, if fur­ther pro­cessing is neces­sary as stip­u­lated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said pro­cessing per Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive cop­ies of the data con­cern­ing them and/or provided by them and to have the same trans­mit­ted to oth­er providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to file com­plaints with the super­vis­ory author­ity if they believe that data con­cern­ing them is being pro­cessed by the con­trol­ler in breach of data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­sions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addi­tion, the con­trol­ler is obliged to inform all recip­i­ents to whom it dis­closes data of any such cor­rec­tions, dele­tions, or restric­tions placed on pro­cessing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. How­ever, this oblig­a­tion does not apply if such noti­fic­a­tion is impossible or involves a dis­pro­por­tion­ate effort. Nev­er­the­less, users have a right to inform­a­tion about these recip­i­ents.

Like­wise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data sub­jects have the right to object to the controller’s future pro­cessing of their data pur­su­ant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In par­tic­u­lar, an objec­tion to data pro­cessing for the pur­pose of dir­ect advert­ising is per­miss­ible.

III. Information about the data processing

Your data pro­cessed when using our web­site will be deleted or blocked as soon as the pur­pose for its stor­age ceases to apply, provided the dele­tion of the same is not in breach of any stat­utory stor­age oblig­a­tions or unless oth­er­wise stip­u­lated below.

Server data

For tech­nic­al reas­ons, the fol­low­ing data sent by your inter­net browser to us or to our serv­er pro­vider will be col­lec­ted, espe­cially to ensure a secure and stable web­site: These serv­er log files record the type and ver­sion of your browser, oper­at­ing sys­tem, the web­site from which you came (refer­rer URL), the webpages on our site vis­ited, the date and time of your vis­it, as well as the IP address from which you vis­ited our site.

The data thus col­lec­ted will be tem­por­ar­ily stored, but not in asso­ci­ation with any oth­er of your data.

The basis for this stor­age is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legit­im­ate interest lies in the improve­ment, sta­bil­ity, func­tion­al­ity, and secur­ity of our web­site.

The data will be deleted with­in no more than sev­en days, unless con­tin­ued stor­age is required for evid­en­tiary pur­poses. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from dele­tion until the invest­ig­a­tion of the rel­ev­ant incid­ent is finally resolved.


If you con­tact us via email or the con­tact form, the data you provide will be used for the pur­pose of pro­cessing your request. We must have this data in order to pro­cess and answer your inquiry; oth­er­wise we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.

The leg­al basis for this data pro­cessing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Your data will be deleted once we have fully answered your inquiry and there is no fur­ther leg­al oblig­a­tion to store your data, such as if an order or con­tract res­ul­ted there­from.

Social media links via graphics

We also integ­rate the fol­low­ing social media sites into our web­site. The integ­ra­tion takes place via a linked graph­ic of the respect­ive site. The use of these graph­ics stored on our own serv­ers pre­vents the auto­mat­ic con­nec­tion to the serv­ers of these net­works for their dis­play. Only by click­ing on the cor­res­pond­ing graph­ic will you be for­war­ded to the ser­vice of the respect­ive social net­work.

Once you click, that net­work may record inform­a­tion about you and your vis­it to our site. It can­not be ruled out that such data will be pro­cessed in the United States.

Ini­tially, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your vis­it, and the page vis­ited. If you are logged into your user account on that net­work, how­ever, the net­work oper­at­or might assign the inform­a­tion col­lec­ted about your vis­it to our site to your per­son­al account. If you inter­act by click­ing Like, Share, etc., this inform­a­tion can be stored your per­son­al user account and pos­sibly pos­ted on the respect­ive net­work. To pre­vent this, you need to log out of your social media account before click­ing on the graph­ic. The vari­ous social media net­works also offer set­tings that you can con­fig­ure accord­ingly.

The fol­low­ing social net­works are integ­rated into our site by linked graph­ics:


Linked­In Ire­land Unlim­ited Com­pany, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dub­lin 2, Irland, a sub­si­di­ary of Linked­In Cor­por­a­tion, 1000 W. Maude Aven­ue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085 USA.
