Making use of my contact data for sending me advertisement or other information without my explicit permission is hereby strictly forbidden.


The photos and images on this website are copyrighted by SCHWARZ WIE EBENHOLZ. You get further information about the conditions of using my photos here.

Content which was made by other people and institutions (like icons, embedded videos, maps, paintings based on my photos) can be clearly recognized by the reference provided under the content or at the end of the page. I did my very best at respecting the rights of third parties every time I had to use content not made by myself. (Embedded videos and services will be explained separately.)


My website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on my site, however, and are explained separately below. I collect personal information from you (e.g. name, email address, etc.) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection statutes. Information is considered personal if it can be associated exclusively to a specific natural person. The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by the provider.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Server Data

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to me or to my web space provider (so called server log files), is collected:

– type and version of the browser you use
– operating system
– websites that linked you to my site (referrer URL)
– websites that you visit
– date and time of your visit
– your Internet Protocol (IP) address.

This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve my website and services.


My website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of my website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve my website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted once you leave my website.

To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve my services and to expedite your access to the website.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Contacting Me

On my website I offer you the opportunity to contact me, either by email and/or at my social media profiles. In such event, information provided is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with you. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of my website.

Posting Comments

On my website I offer you the opportunity to post comments about individual articles. For this purpose, the IP address of the user/internet connection subscriber is stored. This information is stored for my security in the event the author through his/her comments infringes against third party rights and/or unlawful content is entered. Consequently, I have a direct interest in the author’s stored data, particularly since I may be potentially liable for such violations. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of my website.

Embedding of Services and Contents of Third Parties

Use of YouTube components with enhanced data protection mode

On my website I use components (videos) of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company belonging to Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To this end, I use the “ – enhanced data protection mode – ” option provided by YouTube.

When you display a page that has an embedded video, a connection will be made to the YouTube server and the content will appear on the website via a communication to your browser.

According to the information provided by YouTube, in “ – enhanced data protection mode -”, data is only transferred to the YouTube server, in particular which of my websites you have visited, if you watch the video. If you are logged onto YouTube at the same time, this information will be matched to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your member account before visiting my website.

Further information about data protection by YouTube is provided by Google under the following link:

Use of the web analysis service Statify

My website uses the web analysis service Statify. To carry out this analysis, Statify makes no use of cookies. Instead of counting visitors, Statify only counts visits. Information like the time, place and frequency of your visits to my site, but not your IP address, are transmitted to my Statify server and stored there for no more than two weeks. Based on this information, I can then optimize my website. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that other components of my website may collect.

Use of Twitter recommendation components

My website employs components provided by Twitter. Twitter is a service of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. As Twitter Inc. has signed the privacy shield framework, they are therefore obliged to maintain the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

Each time my website receives an access request equipped with a Twitter component, the component prompts your browser to download an image of this component from Twitter. Through this process, Twitter is informed precisely which page of my website is being visited. I have no control over the data that Twitter collects in the process, or over the extent of the data that Twitter collects. To the best of my knowledge, Twitter collects the URL of each website accessed as well as the IP address of the user, but does so solely for the purpose of displaying Twitter components. Additional information may be obtained from the Twitter data privacy policy, at:

Use of Pinterest

Pinterest stores the data that is transferred through clicks on “Pin it“ buttons. You can find more information with respect to the purpose and extent of data collected, how it is processed and used as well as your rights in this regard and what settings you can use to protect your privacy by consulting the Pinterest data protection policy, which you can access at
