Juergen Katzenberger (“I”, “me”, “my”), with a registered address at Schulstrasse 21, 80634 Munich, Germany, is responsible for this Website and the contents therein.

I respect the fact that you are concerned about the safety of your data, and I take my relations with you seriously. This privacy policy statement (“Privacy Policy Statement”) is made available to you according to the German Federal Data Protection Law (BDSG), the Telemedia Law (TMG) and the Interstate Treaty on Broadcasting (RStV) and is applicable to the Website www.juergenkatzenberger.com.

In this privacy policy statement, I will list the various types of personal data that I collect at www.juergenkatzenberger.com and explain how I use the personal data and to whom I am permitted to send them. The term personal data refers here to all the information about an identifiable individual; this includes the name, the address, the e-mail address, the telephone number and other information about this individual. My Privacy Policy Statement also describes the measures I have taken to protect and safeguard this kind of personal data. Furthermore, you can find out how to contact me in order to:

Please read this Privacy Policy Statement as well as the terms of use for this Website carefully. By using this Website, you are acknowledging this Privacy Policy Statement and agreeing to comply with the terms of use.

What personal data do I collect and how do I use them?

1. The personal data you make available to me

You can opt to make personal data available to me on my Website (like your name, your address, your telephone number, or your email address). If you decide not to make personal data available to me, you may be unable to access certain functions available on my Website. In the following, I will explain how you can make personal data available to me; I will tell you which personal data you should transmit and explain how I may use this personal data.

Contact

When you communicate with me via “Imprint” or “Contact” on my Website, I may ask you for personal data, like your name, your address and your e-mail address, so that I can respond to your questions or comments. You can also provide me with more data than those already requested.

2. Automatically collected personal data

When you access www.juergenkatzenberger.com, I automatically collect certain personal which I then compile so that they cannot be connected to a single identifiable individual. This information provides me with statistics, for example, the number of hits on our Website and which pages were visited. By compiling this information, I can elaborate how best to adapt the Website to the needs of its users. I collect this information either through the use of log files or cookie technology, which are explained below.

Log files

Log files are Web server files (for example, the domain name, or the IP address, the URL, the http response code, the website from which you accessed us, or the date and duration of your visit) that are automatically generated when an Internet user accesses a website. I store this information for 30 days. When you are finished using our Website, I process and use this data to maintain the possibility of a connection, for the purpose of accounting, as well as for ascertaining whether my online offering has suffered a failure or been breached in some way.

This data is used to create a general profile of my Website’s users and not to create individual personal profiles. In the event of interruptions or breaches, I do reserve the right to send law enforcement agencies a corresponding report. I do not use this information for any other purpose(s) and do not pass it on to third parties except in the manner described in the section below titled “To whom do we transmit the personal data”.

Google Analytics

The Website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). The www.juergenkatzenberger.com Website, however, only uses the anonymised version, that is, the IP address of the individual user is not identifiable and not collected.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files that are placed on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website (including your IP address) is then transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the Website, to compile reports on the website activity for the website operators and to provide other services relating to website and Internet use. Google may also transmit this information to a third party if it required to do so by law, or insofar as a third party is charged by Google with processing this information. However, Google will by no means associate your IP address with other Google data.
You may refuse to have cookies installed by configuring your browser software correspondingly: nevertheless, I would like to inform you that you will then not be able to use all the functions fully. By using my Website you consent to Google processing the data it collects through you in the manner described above and for the purpose set out above.

Cookies

Like many other people, I also use “cookies” or similar objects on our Website. Cookies are small files stored on your computer’s hard disk when you access certain Internet sites. I will use cookies, for example, to find out whether you have already accessed my Website, or are a new user; or I use them to find out which of the functions on my site are of particular interest to you. Cookies can facilitate “online life”, for instance, by having a certain website “remember” your password and your viewing preferences whenever you access it.

Most Internet browsers are configured to accept cookies. The “Help” function on the menu bar of most Web browsers contains more information about this, how you may prevent the browser from accepting new cookies, how you may be informed of new cookies, and how to deactivate existing cookies. Please be informed, however, that by not accepting cookies, you may not be able to use all the functions on my Website.

To whom do I transmit the personal data?

The personal data of our Website’s users are neither sold nor shown to other parties.

I may transmit your personal data to service providers whom I have put in charge of providing services in my name. These parties are only given the personal data they require to carry out their function, and they may only use and make that personal data public whose publishing is absolutely necessary to perform the services in my name or to comply with legal provisions.

Besides, I may disclose your personal data

(i) if I am compelled to do so by law or within the framework of a court proceeding,

(ii) to law enforcement officials and other governmental agencies, or

(iii) if I believe that disclosing the personal data is necessary or appropriate in order to avoid physical harm or financial losses, or within the context of an investigation into alleged or proven illegal activities.

Links to other websites

My Website may contain links to other websites – this is so you can access them easily and to provide you with more information. These websites operate independently of www.juergenkatzenberger.com. Linked sites also have occasionally their own privacy policy statements. I recommend urgently that you read these should you access a linked site. If you access the linked websites that are not operated by www.juergenkatzenberger.com,  I will not be held liable for their content, care or availability.

How do I protect personal data?

I have set up administrative and technical security measures for this Website in order to help prevent loss, abuse or unauthorized access to personal data, as well as disclosure, alteration or deletion of personal that you leave at www.juergenkatzenberger.com.

Access and corrections

I allow users of the Website reasonable access to the personal data they leave at www.juergenkatzenberger.com, as well as access for checking and correcting data (e.g. correction of the data that was given in connection with an enquiry). Queries about access should be sent to juergen at juergenkatzenberger dot com.

You have the choice

If you would like to look at the personal data regarding yourself that I have processed, or revise or communicate your contact data and preferences, or you no longer wish to have me process your personal data, you should send an e-mail to juergen at juergenkatzenberger dot com.

If you request that I no longer use your personal data in the future, I will accede to that request. Nevertheless, I will store the file with your personal data according to the current legal regulations.
