Privacy Policy

I take the protection of your personal data seriously and would like to inform you here about the way in which your personal data is processed by me when you visit my website

1. Person Responsible

Responsible in the sense of Art. 4 No. 7 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) for the processing of your personal data in connection with the use of my website is:

Nils Stelte

Leberstraße 22
10829 Berlin

2. Processing of your personal data

When you visit my website, personal data is processed.

2.1 Data Processing When Contacting Us

If you contact me by e-mail, the data you provide me with, such as your e-mail address, your name and your phone number, if applicable, as well as information about your request will be stored by me in order to answer your questions.

The data processing serves the purpose of processing your request.

The legal basis for the processing of the personal data concerning you is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest results from the necessity of processing your data in order to be able to answer your inquiry.

I store your data only as long as it is necessary for the purpose, that is, until the complete answer to your request, or, if the request is assigned to a contract, according to the time limits for the duration of the contract.

There is no legal obligation to provide your personal data. However, if you do not want to provide me with your data, it is not possible to contact you.

2.2 Technical data

2.2.1 Logfiles

When you visit my website, a so-called log data record (so-called server log files) is stored temporarily and anonymously on my web server. This consists of:

This data is processed for the purpose of the technical provision of my website and for statistical evaluations as well as for the purpose of identifying and tracing unauthorized access to the web server and other criminal offenses.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. My legitimate interest for the temporary storage of technical access data is to be able to provide you with a technically functional and user-friendly website and to ensure the security of my system.

The recipient of the data is my hosting service provider Hetzner (see section 3.1 below).

Log file information is stored from the end of your website visit for a maximum of 30 days and then deleted.

The data processing is necessary for the operation of my website. If you wish to object to the data processing, you can do so by not visiting my website.

The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, but it is necessary for the functionality of my website.

2.2.2 General information about cookies

I do not use cookies on my website.

3. Transfer of personal data to external service providers

For some functions on my website, I integrate external service providers to whom I transfer personal data. All third-party service providers engaged by me act as contract workers for me according to my instructions and are integrated in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO data protection. The contractual agreement provides, among other things, that order processors undertake to comply with data protection, which includes securing your personal data through appropriate technical and organizational measures - in particular by means of encryption technologies.

3.1 Hetzner

I use Hetzner to host my website. The provider is Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen. When you visit my website, Hetzner collects various log files including your IP addresses (see section 2.2.1). The legal basis for the collection of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. I have a legitimate interest in the most reliable presentation of my website.

For more information, please refer to Hetzner's privacy policy:

4. Data deletion and storage period

For the processing operations carried out by me, I indicate in each case how long the data will be stored by me and when they will be deleted or blocked. Unless an explicit storage period is specified, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose or legal basis for the storage ceases to apply. In principle, your data will only be stored on my servers in Germany, subject to any transfer that may take place, which will be specified elsewhere.

However, storage may take place beyond the specified time in the event of a (threatened) legal dispute with you or other legal proceedings, or if storage is required by legal regulations to which I am subject as the responsible party (e.g. § 257 HGB, § 147 AO). If the storage period prescribed by the legal regulations expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted, unless further storage by me is necessary and there is a legal basis for this.

5. Data security

I use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties (e.g. SSL encryption for my website), taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, as well as the existing risks of a data breach (including its likelihood and impact) for the data subject. My security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

6. No data transfer to a so-called third country

Your personal data will not be transferred to companies located outside the European EU or the European Economic Area (so-called third countries).

7. No obligation to provide personal data

I do not make the provision of the offers of my website dependent on you providing me with personal data beforehand. For you as a user of my website, there is no legal or contractual obligation to provide me with your personal data; however, it may be that I can provide certain services only limited or not at all, if you do not provide the necessary data. If this should be the case, you will be informed separately in this privacy policy.

8. Your rights

Ihre Rechte als betroffene Person bezüglich der Verarbeitung der Sie betreffenden personenbezogenen Daten können Sie mir gegenüber unter den eingangs angegebenen Kontaktdaten jederzeit geltend machen. Sie haben als betroffene Person das Recht:

9. Update of the privacy policy

Due to changes in legal or regulatory requirements as well as the further development of technical standards and my offer, adjustments to this privacy policy may be necessary, which is why it is insofar regularly reviewed for the need for changes or additions. The privacy policy can therefore be changed at any time with effect for the future.
