Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. You agree to agree to these policies by virtue of using our website in a way that leads to you providing us with personal information.

State Law & Accompanying Rights

Please understand that you may have additional rights originating from State laws based on where you live. These State-based rights may augment, strengthen, or otherwise somehow compliment any privacy rights you have inherently or under Federal law. Our policy is to comply fully with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in which we operate. Accordingly, you are free to use our Contact information to reach us at any time to assert any State rights.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, our website will never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 18.

Under our Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, children under 18 are not allowed to use our website and access our services. It is not our intention to offer products or services to minors.

Google Analytics uses Google Analytics to help analyse how users use the site. The tool uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of this website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Other Collection of Personal Information

When visiting our website, the IP address used to access our website may be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer our website, track users movement, and gather broad demographic information for internal use such as statistical assessments and website improvement. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Other information may be collected as well, which is rather typical of most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to our website is generally known. Likewise, your duration on our website, and your destination when you leave our website can also be tracked. Other common data collected includes the type of operating system the computer you are using to access our website has. Similarly, the type of web browser is often noted. Again, this is common data collection, and helps ultimately produce a better end-user experience.

Cookies are another common internet practice. Cookies are a key means of improving user experience by allows us to customize your use of our website. Simple information is transferred to your computer to allow the content and experience to reflect your actions, preferences, and so on. You should simply make the assumption our website uses cookies, and note that you are free to make adjustments in your web browser to disable these or otherwise receive notification of cookies so you can take whatever desired action you so choose. Please understand that refusing cookies may cripple some of our website features and render some aspects useless to you.

At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder), provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or otherwise. Likewise, purchases necessarily involve collecting certain information, such as credit card information, Paypal addresses, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may lead to us being unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested.

A prime example of limited access to our website is where content may be protected by a username and password. Whether a username and password is generated by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected with some other information related to or connected with you. This is true since much content that is protected on the internet is subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the username and password must necessarily be tied to your other account data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept private.

Handling of Personal Information

Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us or our vendors is wholly optional. As an example, you might disclose something in a blog post comment. That “private” information is now “public,” and we have no control over that. In like fashion, you sharing information with any other third party not functioning as a service provider to us puts that information beyond our control and becomes subject to the policy that party has in place.

Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information from you is simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally to better serve you. Accordingly, we see no reason to share your personal information to other parties and outside interests unless you have authorized us to do so.

Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services “in-house.” However, you are never required to deal with any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.

However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to understand our overall user base. Further, we may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes, in our sole discretion.

While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are times when even we may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the same occur with our website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may simply be compelled to do so by law.

On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your private information in order to protect our own interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information.

Comments Policy

As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. But without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match that discourages others from entering into the fray.

So here is comments policy. By posting on my blog, you agree to the following:

You may comment without registering. You can log-in via Disqus, OpenID, Twitter, Facebook—or not at all. It’s up to you. You may post anonymously. I don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. I may change this rule if it is abused.

You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, I would rather receive your comments on than via email. It is a better use of my time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.

You may disagree with me. I welcome debate. However, I ask that if you disagree with me—or anyone else, for that matter—do so in a way that is respectful. In my opinion, there is way too much shouting in the public square to tolerate it here. reserves the right to delete your comments. This is my blog. I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. The First Amendment gives you the right to express your opinions on your blog not mine.

Specifically, I will delete your comments if you post something that is, in my sole opinion, (a)snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.

You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those postings.

You grant a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.

In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. I believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the use cookies. Cookies are text files that are
stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie
ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character
string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific
Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites
and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other
Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be
recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the can provide the users of this website
with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with
the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website
users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our
website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data
each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the
cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of
a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a
customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website
by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus
permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be
deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is
possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting
of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be
entirely usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the collects a series of general data and information
when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and
information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types
and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the
website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4)
the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an
Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the
accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in
the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the does not draw any
conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver
the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well
as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology
systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the
information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore,
the analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically,
with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise,
and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The
anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data
provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with
the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller
is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal
data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use
by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to
one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an
internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the
Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the
registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the
background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if
necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage
of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to
third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the
transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data,
is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services
that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in
question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the
registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of
the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data
subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the
data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of
the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety
of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as

The informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of
a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received
by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the
data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent
to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter
shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail
is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is
authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the
computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data
subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the
registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the
(possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it
therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be
used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be
informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter
service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of
modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical
circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter
service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the
data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data
subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the
purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It
is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the
website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different

7. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of the contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking
pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format
to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the
success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking
pixel, the may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject,
and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are
stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the
newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the
interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third
parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate
declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a
revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The
automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

8. Contact possibility via the website

The website of the contains information that enables a quick
electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which
also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If
a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal
data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data
transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored
for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of
this personal data to third parties.

9. Comments function in the blog on the website

The offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on
individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A
blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people
called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called
blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments
made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the
date of the commentary and on the user’s (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In
addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data
subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security
reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts
illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is,
therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the
event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third
parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of
the data controller.
10. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

The comments made in the blog of the may be subscribed to by third
parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the
comments following his comments on a particular blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an
automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the
owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favor of this option. The option to
subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.
11. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only
for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is

based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of
Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of
the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the
processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public
interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to
Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data
transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and
when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time
contact any employee of the
g) Right to object

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to
object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to
processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f)
of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the
objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing
which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the
establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the
data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data
concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that
it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the
will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her
particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her
by the for scientific or historical research purposes, or for
statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is
necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any
employee of the In addition, the data subject is free in the context
of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC,
to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to
be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling,
which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects
him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the
performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is
not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and
which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and
freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a
contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the
data subject’s explicit consent, the shall implement suitable measures
to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least
the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his
or her point of view and contest the decision.

decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or
she may, at any time, contact any employee of the

13. Data protection for applications and the application procedures

The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the
purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be
carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits
corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website
to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an
applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the
employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment
contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents
shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision,
provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the
erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a
procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

14. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we
obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data
is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as
is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of
goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b
GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying
out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our
products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing
of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the
processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of
personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or
of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were
injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital
information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party.
Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing
operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for
processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal
grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests
pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden
by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require
protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible
because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He
considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client
of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

15. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our
legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our
employees and the shareholders.

16. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the
respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the
corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the
fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
17. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement
necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the
personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax
regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the
contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the
data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by
us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when
our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data
would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be
concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must
contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision
of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion
of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the
consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

18. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
