To give you a good sense of the ways in which we process data, we would like to provide an overview of data processing.

If you have any further questions about the handling of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us (see section 2).

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

2         Controller 

The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Tel.: +49 (0) 176-82059334

We are not obliged to appoint a data protection officer.

3        Encryption

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of personal data and other confidential content (e.g. enquiries to the controller). You can recognise an encrypted connection by the string “https://” and the lock symbol in your browser line.

4        Links

If you use external links that are offered within the framework of our website, this privacy policy does not extend to the linked pages. In the event that you follow a link to one of these websites, we would like to point out that the use of these websites is subject to the respective provider’s own data protection conditions. We recommend that you check the data protection information on the linked websites. In this way, you can determine whether and to what extent personal data is collected, processed, used or made accessible to third parties.

5        Definitions

Our privacy policy is intended to be simple and understandable for everyone. As a rule, the privacy policy uses the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 DSGVO.

“Personal data” is any information that relates to the personal or factual circumstances of a person and that makes it possible to identify that person. This includes, for example, your name, your email address, but also, for example, the content of a message that you send to us.

“Controller‘ means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction;

“Data subject” means any natural person whose personal data are processed and who can determine them.

6        Collection and use of non-personal data when using the website

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. However, each time the website is visited, the web server automatically saves information in so-called server log files, which your end device automatically transmits to us. We have no direct influence on the collection of this data, but for reasons of transparency we want to inform you about this. The data collected by the web server includes:

·       Our visited website

·       Date and time at the time of access

·       Amount of data sent in bytes

·       The referrer URL, i.e. the URL from which you originally came here.

·       The host name of the accessing end device

·       Browser used (type / version)

·       Operating system used

·       IP address used

Purpose of processing: There is no merging of data with other data sources. As personal data is concerned, we process it for the purpose of ensuring a functioning and secure website.

Legal basis: We process the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest. Our legitimate interest is to enable you to use the website without disruption and to ensure IT security.

Duration of storage: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after 30 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

Objection: The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on your part.

Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, your personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

8.1        Purpose of data processing: This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting and communicating you as well as for the associated technical administration. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

8.2        Legal basis for data processing: The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.

8.3        Deletion / objection: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation is ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

8.4        We ensure that the data is kept secure from unauthorised third-party access. However, please note that unencrypted e-mails sent via the Internet are not sufficiently protected against unauthorised access by third parties. Alternatively, you can send us a message via our secure contact form (SSL standard).

9        Contract initiation and implementation (team coaching, seminars, booking as keynote speaker)

Insofar as you wish to make use of services presented by us on our website, it is necessary that you provide the data required for this as part of the registration / booking and implementation.

9.3        Legal basis for data processing: We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the legal relationship (inventory data). The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

9.4        Deletion / objection: The collected customer data will be deleted after termination of the contractual relationship or the business relationship, but not before expiry of the statutory retention periods (usually 10 years).

9.5        Transfer to third parties: We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary within the framework of the contract processing; for example, to a credit institution commissioned with the payment processing. Further transmission of data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

10      Data processing for newsletter ordering and sending, newsletter data and personalisation; email marketing

On our website you have the possibility to subscribe to a free newsletter (“Newsletter“). In the newsletter we inform you about our services by e-mail. We can personalise the newsletter for you based on the data mentioned below.

10.1     Data processed: When you subscribe to the newsletter, we process inventory data (e.g. names, addresses); contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers); meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses); usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times). Your name is used to address you personally in the newsletter.

10.2     Double opt-in procedure: Registration for our newsletter is always carried out in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people’s e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address.

10.3     Existing customers receive information from us about our similar products and services by e-mail without having to consent to this (hereinafter “existing customer communication”). The following data is processed in connection with the existing customer communication:

Data that you provide to us as part of a purchase: First and last name, e-mail address.

10.4     Purpose of data processing: We process your data to send you the newsletter. We also process the data to learn about your interests and to provide you with content on our website or in the newsletter. The processing of the existing customer’s email address for marketing purposes is used to send you news about similar services.

10.5     Legal basis for data processing: Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. DSGVO), we then check the email address provided when registering for the newsletter as part of a so-called double opt-in procedure, in which we send a confirmation email to the email address provided. Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO): The newsletter is sent on, if consent is not required, the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and insofar as this is permitted by law, e.g. in the case of existing customer advertising. Our legitimate interest is to stay in contact with the customer and to suggest services that might be of interest to them. Insofar as we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in efficient and secure dispatch.

Duration of storage: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, we process your data as long as you have not revoked your consent. If you have revoked your consent, we will no longer send you newsletters and will delete your data in accordance with the requirements of the DSGVO and the BDSG. The e-mail address of the existing customer will be stored for the purpose of existing customer communication until we receive an objection to this. Beyond that, we only store this data for the fulfilment of any statutory retention obligations or for the assertion of or defence against legal claims.

10.6     Possibility of objection (opt-out): You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent or object to further receipt. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter either at the end of each newsletter or you can use one of the contact options given above, preferably e-mail, for this purpose.

You can opt out of receiving existing customer communications at any time and separately from the newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of an email to existing customers. If you subsequently shop with us again, you will receive existing customer communications again unless you opt out at or after the time of purchase.

14.2     Processor

All personal data that we process within the scope of this website is processed by us or our service providers.

We pass on your personal data to other responsible parties who process the personal data for their own purposes, insofar as this is necessary to process the contract or provide the service, e.g. in the context of the order to the shipping company or the parcel delivery company. Our contractual partners may use the data thus transmitted exclusively for the purpose for which we transmitted it.

The transfer of your personal data for these purposes takes place for the fulfilment of the contract, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO or due to our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) in making our operation efficient.

Legal obligation or enforcement of legal claims

We otherwise only transfer your personal data to third parties if and to the extent that this is required or permitted by law or in order to enforce legal claims or to investigate or prevent suspected or actual illegal activities. In these cases, we will inform you separately about the respective transfer if and insofar as this is legally required.

14.4     Transfer to third countries

If we transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or commission processors in such countries (for example in the USA), we implement the legally required standards and security mechanisms. We achieve this, for example, by agreeing to the so-called EU standard contracts.
