Privacy Statement

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data is very important to us; therefore, we treat your personal data confidentially, in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy statement.

The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. If personal data (for example name or e-mail addresses) are requested on our website, the provision of such data is always voluntary, as far as possible. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. Hereby, we would like to point out that the transmission of data on the Internet (for example in the case of communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data from access by third parties cannot be guaranteed by us.

Server log files

We store information in server log files that your computer or browser automatically transmits to us. These are, for example, the IP address of the accessing computer, time and date of the request, name and address (URL) of the retrieved file, the website from which the access takes place (so-called referrer URL), the browser used (including the version), the operating system (including the version) of your computer and the name of your Internet provider. The data mentioned are processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensure the comfortable use of our website
  • Guarantee the smooth connection of the website
  • Capture system security and system stability
  • As well as for other administrative purposes

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. An aggregation of data with other data sources will not be not made.

Personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. These include, for example, name, e-mail address or telephone number. If you provide us with personal data, for example in the course of a contact request, we store these data exclusively for the use in the context of our existing customer relationship with you. Your data will be used solely by us. We will only pass them on to public authorities entitled to information if we are obliged to do so by legal regulations. We also take corporate privacy very seriously.


On this website, we offer you the opportunity to contact us by e-mail and/or via the contact form. If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there for processing the request and in case of follow-up questions, will be stored with us. This information will not be passed on to third parties.

Registration for our newsletter

At irregular intervals, Mechthild Scheffer provides news about her work through a newsletter. You can subscribe to the newsletter on our website. We need your e-mail address for sending the newsletter. For mailing the newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, which means that after entering your e-mail address, we will send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm by clicking on a link that you wish to receive the newsletter in the future. You will only sign up for the e-mail newsletter once you have explicitly confirmed to us by clicking on the link that you agree to the mailing of the newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration, in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later point of time. This serves as a legal protection for the person responsible for processing the data.

The personal data collected in the context of the subscription for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. There is no transfer of personal data collected in this context to third parties.

You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which you have sent us for mailing the newsletter, can be cancelled at any time. For the purpose of cancellation, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. In addition, you may also terminate the newsletter mailings at any time by informing the person responsible for processing referred to in this privacy statement. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately from our e-mail distribution list.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive contents, such as the requests you submit via the contact form.
