Data collection

Contact form and email

Some data is collected when you provide it to us, e.g. by using the contact form or sending us an email. We use this data only to communicate with you and will delete it, as soon as we no longer need it for that purpose. We will not pass on this information to others without your permission. Data collected through the contact form is only processed with your expressed consent. You may revoke that consent at any time (please refer to your rights).

Automatically collected data

When you write us an email, our hosting provider will automatically collect the following data: sender, recipient, date and time of receipt, ip-address and size of the email. This data is stored in so-called server log files and is used by our hosting provider to maintain and improve their service as well as being able to prosecute violations. These log files are not combined with data from other sources and are automatically deleted after 3 days unless they are needed as proof to prosecute violations.
