Specifically, this requires the IP address of your computer, Date and time of access, Name and URL of the accessed file, Browser used, Number of bytes transferred, Status of the page retrieval, Session ID, Referrer URL.
Content Management System
We use the Content Management System (CMS) of Wix.com LTD to publish and maintain the created and edited content and texts on our website. This means that all content and texts submitted to us is transferred to Wix. This represents a legitimate interest.
Content Delivery Network
We also use the Content Delivery Network (CDN) of Wix to distribute our online content. Our CDN is a network of regionally distributed servers operated by our technical service providers that are interconnected via the Internet. When you visit our website, your device's browser transmits information to these service providers, which is collected in corresponding server log files. The server log files are usually anonymized and then transmitted without personal reference. The server log files include in particular i) information on the browser and operating system used, ii) the previously visited pages (so-called referral URL), iii) the IP address of the device used, iv) the name of the Internet provider, and v) the date, time of all page views including the amount of data transferred.

Cookies may be small files or other types of information storage. There are different types of cookies: a) Essential Cookies. Essential cookies are cookies to provide a correct and user-friendly website; and b) Non-essential Cookies. Non-essential Cookies are any cookies that do not fall within the definition of essential cookies, such as cookies used to analyse your behaviour on a website (“analytical” cookies) or cookies used to display advertisements to you (“advertising” cookies).

Third-party services and content
We use content or service offers of third-party providers on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to integrate their content and services.This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content.
The following provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, together with links to their privacy policies, which contain further information on the processing of data and so-called opt-out measures, if any,
Analytics: Google Analytics by Google LLC,

If you do not wish to participate in our advertising personalisation or retargeting/tracking you can object to behavioural advertising at the following websites: Your Online Choices, Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, Network Advertising Initiative or AdChoices.
Links to other websites
We have integrated components from YouTube. The integration requires that YouTube can perceive the IP address of the user. The IP address is required in order to send the video content to the user's browser. If you click on a YouTube component (video) on our website, your internet browser will be prompted by the component to download a corresponding representation of the component. In this way, YouTube knows which specific sub-pages you have visited. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest and your consent.
Data we collect directly
If you contact us, we store and process the following data from you: Name, e-mail address, telephone number as well as other personal data that you provide when contacting us. This data is collected and processed exclusively for the purpose of contacting you and processing your request and then deleted, provided there is no legal obligation to retain it.

We are present on social media. If you contact or connect with us via social media websites, we and the relevant social media website are jointly responsible for the processing of your data and enter into a so-called joint controller agreement. The legal basis is our legitimate interest, your consent or, in some cases, the initiation of a contract.
When using our services
The protection of your Personal Data is particularly important to us in the performance of our services. We therefore only want to process as much Personal Data (for example, your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) as is absolutely necessary. Nevertheless, we rely on the processing of certain Personal Data, to fulfil our contractual obligations to you or to carry out pre-contractual measures and in the context of administrative tasks as well as organisation of our business, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving.
Administration, financial accounting, office organisation, contact management
We process data in the context of administrative tasks as well as organisation of our business, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In this regard, we process the same data that we process in the course of providing our contractual services. The processing bases are our legal obligations and our legitimate interest.
We use the service of Acuity Scheduling for the simplified bookings and availability checks. By using this service, data (Name, e-mail address, telephone number, address and your event details) is transferred to Acuity Scheduling. The processing of the data entered via Acuity Scheduling is thus based on our legitimate interest and the preparation of a contract.
If you make a purchase or request payout of your earnings your payment will be processed via our payment service providers Klarna or Stripe. Payment data will solely be processed through Klarna or Stripe and we have no access to any Payment Data you may submit. The legal basis for the provision of a payment system is the establishment and implementation of the contract.
Within the Testimonial section, we may display certain Personal Data, share certain details, knowledge and insights. When you approve and submit your Testimonial to us your consent is obtained, and you have choices about the information in your Testimonial.
The storage of Testimonials is based on your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
We use the rating and review system of REVIEWS.io to constantly improve our service, we offer our customers the opportunity to rate us via an independent portal, without us being able to influence this in any way. For this purpose, some data is transmitted to REVIEWS.io. The integration is based on our legitimate interest, and we have no influence or control over the data collected and processed by REVIEWS.io.
Insofar as you have given us your separate consent to process your data for marketing and advertising purposes, we are entitled to contact you for these purposes via the communication channels you have given your consent to.
You may give us your consent in a number of ways including by selecting a box on a form where we seek your permission to send you marketing information, or sometimes your consent is implied from your interactions or contractual relationship with us. Where your consent is implied, it is on the basis that you would have a reasonable expectation of receiving a marketing communication based on your interactions or contractual relationship with us.
Direct Marketing generally takes the form of e-mail but may also include other less traditional or emerging channels. These forms of contact will be managed by us, or by our contracted service providers. Every directly addressed marketing sent or made by us or on our behalf will include a means by which you may unsubscribe or opt out.
Economic analyses and market research
For business reasons, we analyse the data we have on business transactions, contracts, enquiries,browsing behaviour etc., whereby the group of persons concerned may include contractual partners, interested parties, and users of our services.
The analyses are carried out for the purpose of business evaluations and market research. The analyses serve us alone and are not disclosed externally and processed using anonymous analyses with summarised and or anonymized values. Furthermore, we take the privacy of users into consideration and process the data for analysis purposes as pseudonymously as possible and, if feasible, anonymously (e.g., as summarised data).
Principles of processing Personal Data
Storage and Retention
As far as necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract.
In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result from the minimum statutory retention periods in accordance with Companies House and HMRC among others. The retention and documentation periods specified there are two to six years.
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us. We have also implemented numerous security measures (“technical and organisational measures”) for example encryption or need to know access, to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Data processed through our website.
Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. And databases or data sets that include Personal Data may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion. Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose Personal Data may have been compromised as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered.
Special Category Data
Unless specifically required when using our services and explicit consent is obtained for that service, we do not process special category data.
