All images on my website are subject to copyright. In case you intend to use any of them for other than private, non-public purposes, you need my prior permission.


First of all I would like to assure that I do not have the slightest interest in your confidential data, so consequently I do not collect any. If you send me a mail I find out your mail address and in case you expect an answer, you need to let me know your name, because I do not talk seriously to persons who hide behind a pseudonym. That’s all, I prefer not to know more.


I use the open source software Matomo for statistical evaluation of this website. Provided that you set up your browser accordingly, it records your visit, which is commonly described as tracking.


All above described tracking works without cookies. The only cookie I set is a session cookie to enhance your convenience. Neither the cookie nor the associated session store any confidential data. Both will be deleted immediately after you close your browser. You can deny the acceptance of cookies in your browser settings, but you may notice a moderate of loss of functionality then.
