This website is operated by me, Sven Koschnicke, and I am responsible in terms of data protection rights (see my full address on the about page).
When using this website, no personal information about you is stored by me.
When your browser-software requests a part of this website, it sends some request information to the server providing the website. This request information includes:
- your current IP-Address over which you are connected to the internet
- name and version of your browser software and operating system
- website, from which you reached the requested website if using a hyperlink (the so called referer-URL, it's misspelling originated in the original proposal for the HTTP specification)
- date and time of the request
The request information is required by the server to process your request of the website (Article 6.1(f) GDPR) and is discarded as soon as this request is fulfilled.
Your privacy is very important to me. For this reason, I do not use any third party services on my website, which would receive your request information. I also do not set any cookies which would allow to track you navigating my website. My website is only available over TLS, the standard for encrypted HTTP (called HTTPS), preventing other from seeing or changing the requested sites (only the hostname, www.gfxpro.com, for the request is not encrypted, which is a feature of the SNI extension to TLS and allows the server to serve more than one website over TLS).
When you contact me, I store the personal information which is provided along with your message to me. I keep this data as long as necessary for our conversation (Article 6.1(b) GDPR) and as required by law (which is six years for business correspondence in germany, Article 257(4) german commercial code, HGB). Conversations over e-mail are not encrypted by default and you should use PGP to encrypt e-mails. You can find my PGP-key at keybase.io.
In any case, I follow industry standards of technical, physical and administrative security to safeguard your personal information.
If you want to access or change your personal data that I store, you may contact me. You have the right to disclosure, correction, deletion or constraint of your personal data, if permitted by law.
If you are unhappy about how I handle your personal data, you may complain to any data privacy authority. For example to the Independent Centre for Privacy Protection Schleswig-Holstein.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
