The protection of your personal data is very important to me. I therefore process your data solely based on the applicable Legal provisions: EU General Data Protection Regulation, Austrian TKG 2003). In this data protection information, I inform you about the most important aspects of data processing in the context of our activities.

The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. If you enter personal data, e.g. for the purpose of contacting us or subscribing to a newsletter, I will pass on the necessary information to companies that process data on my behalf (e.g. send the newsletter). I only commission companies that are subject to the GDPR.

Encrypted data transfer

This web site uses SSL encryption in order to ensure safety and privacy. This prevents third parties to intercept or read data you entered on my web site during transmission to or from my site. You can confirm the active encryption by checking the lock symbol in the address bar of your browser.

If you contact me using the contact form, by E-mail, phone or any other means, I store the data provided for one year in order to answer your questions and prepare for follow-up discussions. In case we enter a contract, the statutory retention periods apply.

You may subscribe to my newsletter via our website. For this I need your e-mail address and your consent to receive the newsletter.

As soon as you have registered for the newsletter, I’ll send you a confirmation e-mail with a link to confirm your registration.  The data processing is therefore based on § 96 para 3 TKG and Art 6 para 1 lit a (consent) of the DSGVO.

You can cancel the newsletter at any time. Please send your cancellation to studio (at) or use the corresponding link at the end of the newsletter. I’ll then immediately delete your data in connection with the newsletter dispatch.

The newsletter is sent by “Sendinblue”, a service of Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany. Sendinblue processes your contact information (such as e-mail address and telephone number), personal information (such as first and last name, date of birth, gender), the date of your registration and the IP address used. Sendinblue uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on my behalf.

I have signed a data processing agreement with Sendinblue. You can find Sendinblue’s privacy policy here:
