2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. I treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various pieces of personal data will be collected. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what information is collected and what it is used for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via e-mail communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.

Notice concerning the party responsible for this website

The party responsible for processing data on this website is:

Birte Mirbach
Aeußere Kanalstrasse 243
50827 Cologne
Germany
Telephone: +49 (0)221/53 97 998
E-Mail: post@birtemirbach.de

www.birtemirbach/impressum

The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal e-mail making this request is sufficient. The data processed before I receive your request may still be legally processed.

 Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities

If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which my company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links- node.html.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which I process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

 SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to me as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://”, and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact me at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

Opposition to promotional e-mails

I hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as e-mail spam, is received.

3. Data collection on my website

Cookies

Some of my web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make my website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies I use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie.

Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider, Strato AG, Pascalstraße 10,10587 Berlin, automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to me in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Conclusion of a contract for contract data processing

I have entered into an agreement with Strato AG for the outsourcing of my data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Strato.

4. Analysis tools

 Statisfy

This website uses the tool Statisfy to statistically evaluate visitor access. Statisfy does not process or store any personal data, including IP addresses, and does not set any cookies. Statisfy counts page views and not users.

Use and application of functions of the collecting society VG WORT

I use so-called “session cookies” from VG Wort, Munich, to measure access to texts in order to measure the likelihood of them being copied. Session cookies are small pieces of information that a provider stores in the main memory of the visitor’s computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. A cookie also contains information about its origin and the storage period. Session cookies cannot store any other data. These measurements are performed by INFOnline GmbH according to the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM). They help to determine the likelihood of individual texts being copied in order to compensate authors and publishers for legal claims. No personal data is collected via cookies.

It is also possible to use my website without cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to inform you as soon as cookies are sent.

Data protection declaration for the use of the Scalable Central Measuring Method

My website and my mobile website use the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM) of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) to determine statistical parameters for determining the probability of texts being copied.

At this, anonymous measuring values are collected. The access number measurement alternatively uses a session cookie or a signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser, to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymized form.

The procedure was developed with data protection in mind. The sole aim of the procedure is to determine the likelihood of individual texts being copied.

Individual users are not identified at any time. Your identity is always protected. You will not receive any advertising through the system.

INFOnline’s current data protection regulations can be found at https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz/

6. Special terms of use
