This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website in accordance with the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator Kilian Herold.
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Please bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.
The website operator or page provider collects data on access to the page and stores this as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
Time at the time of access
Amount of data sent in bytes
Source/reference from which you reached the page
Operating system used

The data collected is only used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
Handling of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The data controller for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").
Scope of processing
In Google Analytics 4, the anonymisation of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your website visit, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of "events". Events can be:
- Page views
- First visit to the website
- Start of session
- Your "click path", interaction with the website
- Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the end of the page (90%))
- Clicks on external links
- Internal search queries
- Interaction with videos
- file downloads
- ads seen / clicked on
- language setting
- Your approximate location (region)
- your IP address (in shortened form)
- technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
- your internet service provider
- the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
Purposes of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your anonymous use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website.
Recipients of the data are/may be
- Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor according to Art. 28 DSGVO)

It cannot be ruled out that US authorities may access the data stored by Google.
Third country transfer
Where data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection equivalent to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not have any legal remedies against access by authorities.
