Privacy Policy

This is a private website and not subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation, according to Article 2 (2) GDPR.

Nonetheless, since I value privacy and transparency, this page describes which personal data can be collected and why.


  • This website consists solely of static HTML pages and does not include external content or services like ads or trackers/analytics, social networks (esp. no “Like” buttons and such). Only the »SVG Icons« page (found in »Web Design Resources«) connects to Pixabay in order to include Icons I've published on that service.

  • When you visit this page, I don't collect any personal data of yours. If you contact me by email, on the other hand, your mail (containing personal data like your email address and name) will be stored in my in-box.

  • The web hoster of this site temporarily collects data in log files, which includes your IP address.

  • This site stores a cookie (if you don't forbid your browser to do so) in order to store your font selection (see right-hand side of the top bar).

Collection of general data and information / log files

With every access to this site, the hoster (Strato AG, Berlin) automatically records general data and information. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

I can't use this information to obtain personal information about the visitor. Rather, this information is needed or may be used to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of this website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

External Content

This website is mainly independent and does not include external content or services except the following:

  • The »Disclaimer« link leads to an external page. If you follow that link, you'll visit another website which can record your visit (especially in a log file) and may include ads and store cookies.

  • The page »SVG Icons« found in »Web Design Resources« includes all my Icons I've submitted to the external image file hoster Pixabay. This is done via an API, a JavaScript in your browser will connect to in order to load the images. Therefore, may record your visit (in a log file).


This website does not include a contact form, but a mail-to link. If you send me an email, that mail, including personal data like your mail address and probably name, will be stored in my in-box on a mail server and will by downloaded to several terminal equipments (computer, smart phone, tablet) in order for me to be able to read and respond to your mail.


This website uses a cookie. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

These pages give you a choice of fonts (see title bar): embedded fonts or system fonts. Your selection is stored in a cookie (provided you did not forbid your browser to store cookies from this site). This enables the pages of this site to retain your selection if you switch pages (follow links) or return to the website later – within a year: One year after your last visit, the cookie will be invalidated and deleted by your browser (if you didn't already delete it ealier yourself). The cookie is only evaluated locally on your host in your browser via the JavaScripts of this web page.

You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through this website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, your font selections are not permanent.

Formerly registered shareware customers

On this site, I once used to offer shareware, i.e paid softare. Customers had to register when buying the unlimited version. This shareware service has been shut down. The software is now available as freeware, also for previous customers, without any more need for registration. Customer data has been or is being deleted, any paper files destroyed.

Your rights

You may enquire if I've still stored any personal data about you (i.e. eails you've sent me or data you provided if you have once registered shareware of mine), and you may request erasure of such data if still present.

Changes to this privacy policy

This privacy policy may be changed any time, for example due to changes in laws or changes to the services provided.

Whenever you visit this site again, the policy served here on the date of your visit will apply.
