Privacy policy

Information according to Art.13 GDPR

The following information will provide you with an easy to navigate overview of what will happen with your personal data when you visit my website.

General notes and mandatory information

I take the protection of your personal data very seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this privacy policy.
When you visit this website, various personal data is collected. The term “personal data” comprises all data that can be used to personally identify you. This privacy policy explains what data I collect, what I use it for, and for what purpose.
I point out that data transmission on the Internet (email,...) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is unfortunately not possible.
Since changes may be made to this privacy policy due to the constant development of my website, I recommend that you read the privacy policy at regular intervals.

The privacy policy is structured as follows:

I. Information about me as the operator of this website
II. Your rights as user
III. Information on data processing
IV. Data collection on my website
V. Final provisions

I. Information about me as the operator of this website

II. Your rights as user

Right of access, rectification, erasure and restriction of processing

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, you can contact me at any time (see point I of the privacy policy or contact details in the imprint). This information will not be provided by me automatically, but after submission of a specific request.

Data portability right

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

Right to object to consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time if there are plausible reasons for doing so. If the objection relates to advertising measures, an informal notification by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The right not to be subject to automated decision making

On this website there is no need or claim for automated decision making or any kind of profiling. This website is free of automated decisions.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which the website operator is based - in my case Saxony. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found in the following link:

III. Information on data processing

Purpose of the data collection

This website serves to publicize my artistic work. If personal data is collected, it is used to serve the interessts of my visitors. Specifically, these include: artistic and cultural exchanges, scheduling appointments, publicizing exhibitions, and networking.

Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data on my website is the article 6 sec. 1 lit. B GDPR after the processing is permitted for the performance of a contract with data subjects.

Data transfer to third parties

In principle, I do not pass on any personal data to third parties, unless a transfer is mandatory due to legal regulations or for order fulfillment. In this case, data subjects will be informed about it, if they are not already aware of it. By order of the competent authorities, I may provide information on inventory data in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, averting danger, fulfilling the statutory tasks of the constitution protection authorities or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service, or enforcing intellectual property rights.

Duration of the storage of personal data

Unless specifically stated, personal data will be stored only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes pursued.

Necessity of the provision of personal data

I would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also be a result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on contractual partners). In order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide me with personal data that must subsequently be processed by me. The data subject is obliged to provide me with truthful personal data when entering into a contract with me. Failure to provide the personal data would result in the inability to conclude the contract with data subjects. Before providing personal data by data subjects, data subjects must contact me. I inform data subjects on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

IV. Data collection on this website

Server Log Files

The provider of this website and its pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The information comprises:

- The type and version of browser used
- The used operating system
- Referrer URL
- The hostname of the accessing computer
- The time of the server inquiry
- The IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources. This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.

Contact form

You can visit my website without providing personal data. As far as on my website personal data (such as name and e-mail address) are collected, this is done on a voluntary basis. This data will not passed on to third parties without your express consent. If you contact me through the contact options offered, your information will be stored so that it can be used for processing and responding to inquiries. If a contractual relationship is to be established between you and me, or its content is to be developed or changed, or if you send me an inquiry, I will collect and use personal data insofar as this is necessary for these purposes. All personal data will only be stored as long as it is necessary for the stated purpose (processing of your request or processing of a contract). Retention periods under tax and commercial law are taken into account. Your personal data will also be deleted without revocation when I have processed the request or you revoke the granted consent for storage. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. In this case, personal data will be deleted immediately. You can inform yourself at any time about the data stored about your person.


My homepage does not use cookies, however, by embedding social plugins and also videos, various connections to servers outside the EU will be established, through which several cookies can be stored in your browser and information about you will be sent to foreign servers. Cookies are small files that are automatically sent to and stored on your computer when you browse the Internet. These are small amounts of text that can be easily retrieved and deleted. But they are very powerful in terms of data about your activities and preferences and can be used to identify you - even without your explicit consent. I, as the website operator, can only intervene to a limited extent in this case. I assure you that I limit all plugins on this site that access servers outside the EU to a necessary minimum, but there is a legitimate interest on my part in optimization, so I do not want to and will not do without social plugins and embedding videos. I use all possible extensions available to me to keep cookies away from my site. Finally, I would still like to point out that the most effective way to protect yourself from cookies is to do it yourself: You have the option to set up your browser in such a manner that you will be notified any time cookies are placed and to permit the acceptance of cookies only in specific cases. You may also exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited. I do not use cookie warnings and banners on my website, since I as the operator have no interest in the user behavior of my visitors and therefore consider cookie notices to be misleading for my visitors.

Plugins and tools

I have programmed my website myself. All content (html, java script, css, image files, font), except for embedded content from social media plattforms, is delivered by the provider Alfahosting.

V. Final provisions

Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint and data protection obligation for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly prohibited. I reserve the right to take legal action in the case of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam e-mails.

Objection to the use of my personal data in general for unauthorized purposes

I generally object to the use of my contact data published within the scope of the imprint and data protection obligation, should it not be for purposes on your part, as I state under "Point III. - Purpose of data collection". I expect the sincere interest in my artistic work as the reason of any use of my contact details. I reserve the right to take legal action in case of disregard.

For your convenience, this website may contain links to other websites. This privacy policy does not apply to those other websites. I recommend that you read the respective privacy policies for information on data collection and data processing.
