I - Robert Wohlfahrt - take the protection of your personal information very seriously. At the same time, however, I am legally obligated to inform you about the data protection conditions when using my offers.
I and my team (“we” or “us”) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy.

Our Privacy Principles
- We only collect data that is strictly necessary for our websites and the operation of the related services.
- Data collected will never be passed on to third parties. Unless the third party is a service provider who uses the data exclusively on our behalf.
- If we have data processed by a service provider (Google, AWS, Kartra), then we have first convinced ourselves that the data will be processed with the same care as ourselves.
- All information collected will only be kept for as long as strictly necessary and then deleted from our systems or the systems of our partners and service providers.
Children And Teens Under the Age of 18
Our Websites are not intended for children under 18 years of age. No one under age 18 may provide any personal information to our websites.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If you are under 18, do not use or provide any information on our websites or on or through any of our services, make any purchases through our websites, use any of the public comment features of our websites or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child or teen under 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child or teen under 18, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The use of this website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name or e-mail addresses) is collected on my pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
Nevertheless,we must point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps, so that a complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Analysis of website traffic with Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to analyze which pages of our offer are accessed, how often, how long users spend on which pages and how users get to our website (by search engine or by linking from another site). Without this information, we would not be able to compile relevant and interesting information for the user.
Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics on this website by clicking on the link below. As a result, an “opt-out cookie” is installed in your browser so that in the future no collection of your data occurs when you visit this website: disable Google Analytics
In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by cookies and data related to your use of our websites (including your IP address) by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Information about data protection when participating in the email mailing list
For contacting you, we have implemented several email distributions lists. By registering at such an email list, you agree to the procedures described below and have no objection to receiving emails from us as part of the email distribution : -)
We send emails via our mailing lists only with the prior consent of the recipients.
Double Opt-In and Logging
The registration for our mailing list is done via the “double opt-in” procedure. This means, that after registration, everyone will receive an email with a request to confirm their email address. This confirmation is done by clicking on a link in the confirmation email and is necessary so that no one can register with a foreign email address.
The registration process is logged in order to prove this double opt-in process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation timing, as well as the IP address used in this process. Likewise, later changes to your data stored in the email system will be logged.
Use of the marketing platform “Kartra” for sending emails
We use the service provider Kartra to operate our mailing lists. Kartra is a platform of the company “Genesis Digital LLC” from California, USA.
The email addresses of my mailing list recipients as well as their other data described in this notice are stored on the servers of Kartra in the USA. Kartra uses this information only for sending and evaluating email campaigns on our behalf.
Kartra does not use this data to contact you or to pass on your email address to third parties.
To register for the mailing list, it is sufficient to provide your email address. Optionally, I ask you to include your first name - this is only for better personalization of the emails.
All emails sent via Kartra contain a so-called “web-beacon”. This is a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from Kartra’s servers when the email is opened. As part of this call, technical information is collected, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval. Statistical analysis also include determining whether emails are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. This information is used only by us and only to improve the services based on the technical data or the target audiences and their reading behaviour.
For technical reasons, all the described information can be assigned to the individual email recipients. However, it is neither our desire, nor that of Kartra, to observe individual users. The evaluations serve only to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them.
Online access to emails and data management
There are cases when email recipients are directed to the websites of Kartra. For example, emails may contain a link by which the email can also be read online in the browser (e.g. in case of display problems in your email program). In addition, as an email recipient, you can correct your data - such as the email address - after registration. These changes are made through websites hosted by Kartra.
In this context, we would like to point out that cookies are used on the websites of Kartra and therefore personal data are processed by Kartra, its partners and service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). We have no influence on this data collection.
You can cancel your participation in the mailing list at any time. At the same time, your consents to be emailed via Kartra and the statistical analyses will expire. A separate revocation of the sending of emails via Kartra or the statistical analysis is not possible.
You will find a link to unsubscribe from the mailing list at the end of every email.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. In this case, however, not all functions of our websites may be fully used.
