This data protection declaration informs users about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Lydia Schältken, Gotenstr. 2, 10829 Berlin on this website (hereinafter “offer”).
The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / server log files
The provider (or its web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The accessed data include:
Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to retrospectively check the log data if there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or phone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is legally permitted or if the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the provider (for example via the contact form or email), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Comments and contributions
If users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This is done for the security of the provider if someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.
With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. This data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized person.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact options above.
Use of the Newsletter Service Provider “MailChimp”
The newsletter is sent via ” MailChimp “, a newsletter distribution platform from the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in these notes, are stored on MailChimp’s servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp can use this data to optimize or improve its own services, i.e. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass the data on to third parties.
In order to register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your email address.
Statistical survey and analysis
The newsletters contain a so-called “web beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval, are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or the access times.
The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our aim nor that of MailChimp 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.
Online access and data management
Termination / Revocation
You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to its broadcast via MailChimp and the statistical analysis will expire. A separate revocation of the subscription or the statistical evaluation directly via MailChimp is unfortunately not possible.
You will find a link to cancel the newsletter subscription at the end of each newsletter.
Integration of services and content from third parties
It can happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the user’s IP address. Because without the IP address, you could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party provider stores the IP address, i.e. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.
You can manage the use of online advertising cookies from companies via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices /.

Use of Facebook social plugins
This offer uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the terms “like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ .
If a user calls up a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, the user’s browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to its level of knowledge :
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the relevant information is sent directly from your browser to Facebook and saved there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out the IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect personal data through this offer and link it to the user’s member data stored on Facebook, the user must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and contradictions to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads .
As part of our legitimate interest in a technically flawless online offer and its economically efficient design and optimization in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR for the integration of videos, we use the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Normally, when you visit a page with embedded videos, your IP address is sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we use a two-click solution through which Google does not find out about your IP address and your visit to our website until you have pressed the button. If you activate the plug-in while you are logged into YouTube at the same time, Google can assign your usage to your user account.
As a result, your data will be passed on to the USA, but Google is registered with Privacy Shield and is obliged to comply with EU data protection regulations. For more information on your rights, see
In addition, we refer to our general presentation in this data protection declaration for the general handling and deactivation of cookies.
This offer uses website elements (https://dev.twitter.com/web/overview), such as buttons or integrated content from the Twitter service, offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA. 94107, USA. With the help of the website elements it is possible, for example, to share a post or page from this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. Individual tweets in particular can be integrated into the website as additional content.
When a user calls up a website on this website that contains such a website element, the user’s browser establishes a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The content of the website element is transmitted directly from Twitter to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Twitter collects with the help of the website elements and informs the user according to its level of knowledge. After this, only the IP address of the user and the URL of the respective website are transmitted when the button is accessed, but not used for purposes other than displaying the website element.
Further information can be found in Twitter’s data protection declaration at http://twitter.com/privacy.
