Thank you for visiting my website. The secure handling of your data is particularly important to me. I would therefore like to inform you in detail about the use of your data when visiting my website. However, there is actually nothing you really need to know. You have probably already read the data subject rights and the explanations about the newsletter or about technically necessary processing operations everywhere.

Who we are

The responsible body is Frank Rogall. Contact by mail at

Please read this privacy policy carefully. You are hereby informed about the processing of personal data of persons using this website.

Personal data is any data by which you could be personally identified. These individual details include, for example, your name or your contact details, such as telephone number, address and e-mail address, but also your network address (IP address).

In the following, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation will be abbreviated as DSGVO. The official abbreviation is DS-GVO, but it is a bit more bulky.

Access data and log files

During the mere informational use of this website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to me, only such data is collected that your browser transmits to my server for technically necessary reasons. When you access my website, the following data is collected, which is technically necessary to display the website to you:

  • IP address (network address) (anonymized)
  • Address of the website you came from
  • Address of the retrieved files
  • Amount of data sent
  • Date and time of a retrieval
  • Name of your Internet service provider
  • as well as operating system and browser version of your terminal device, if applicable


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Unless they are technically necessary cookies (which are kept purely locally and are not further analyzed), you will be asked to consent to the setting of cookies.

Embedded content from other websites

Article on this site uses Google Fonts.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Hosting of this website

In the context of processing on my behalf, a third-party provider located within a country of the European Union provides the services for hosting and displaying the website for me and provides infrastructure services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, maintenance services and security services for this purpose. In doing so, I or my hosting provider process all data that accrue in the context of the use of my website. This is inventory data, content data, usage data, meta and communication data of interested parties and visitors to my online offer.

The processing is based on my legitimate interest in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer (Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 28 DSGVO).

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
