You may contact me by sending an email to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, which is mentioned on the website. This email address primarily serves the purpose of communicating with me, in order to initiate a new contract or to communicate during any such contractual relationship already existing. By way of email you may transfer a variety of data to me. Usually, with your email you will transfer to me, due to technical reasons, among others, your email address and your IP address as well as any other information that you include in such email yourself.

If you contact me, in order to initiate a new contractual relationship, but such relationship was not established, I will delete all relevant communication, as soon as the legal grounds for storage have ceased to exist and provided that there are no legal retention duties. If you contact me to exercise any of your rights as a data subject, I will delete all relevant communication, as well, as soon as the legal grounds for storage have ceased to exist and provided that there are no legal retention duties. The provision of such personal data is not mandatory according to the law or any contract.

You may recognize whether a specific page on our website is transmitted in encrypted form, if you see a locked key or, as the case may be, a lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
Apart from that, I have appropriate technical and organizational security measures in place to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures will be continuously improved according to technological development.
