Liability for content
As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages according to Section 7, Paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which knowledge of a specific infringement of the law is known. As soon as we become aware of any violations of the law, we will remove this content immediately.

Liability for links
Our offer contains links to external websites over which we have no influence. Therefore we cannot assume any liability for this external content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.

The content and works on these pages created by the site operator are subject to German copyright law. The duplication, editing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content on this site was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are observed. In particular contents of third parties are marked as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we ask that you inform us accordingly. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such content immediately.

Data protection

Thank you for visiting my website. Safe handling of your data is important to me  . I would therefore like to inform you in detail about the use of your data when you visit my website.

I. Responsible body

Responsible for:
Sabine Schoder
c/o literary agency Christiane Düring
Lowengasse 27B
60385 Frankfurt
Telephone: +408946137948
Email: info(at)agentur[minus]duering(dot)de

Please read this privacy policy carefully. You will be informed here about the processing of personal data of persons using this website.

Personal data is any data with which you could be personally identified. This individual information includes, 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 General Data Protection Regulation is abbreviated to GDPR.

II. What data is collected on this website?

Access data and log files

When using this website, only data that your browser transmits to our server for technically necessary reasons is collected. When you visit my website, the following data is collected, which is technically required to display the website to you:

  • IP address (network address)

  • Address of the website you came from

  • Address of retrieved files

  • Amount of data sent

  • Date and time of a retrieval

  • Name of your internet service provider

  • and, if applicable, the operating system and browser version of your end device

The collection of data initially only means that I (or my server) can actually gain knowledge of this data. Collection does not mean storing data. However, some of the data just mentioned is stored in log files. This does not include the IP address.

If your network address would not be transmitted to my server, it would not know who to show the website to. This is analogous to a letter: If the sender is missing, the recipient cannot reply.

IP addresses are stored, if at all, only for the specified purposes and for a specified duration. Unless otherwise stated, the duration is a maximum of five days. The purposes are only those that are in my legitimate interest to ensure the operation of this website. This includes defending against malicious attacks or excessive use of my offer.

When using this data, I do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, the information collected is only required for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection to the website

  • Providing a comfortable use

  • Evaluation of system security and stability

  • other administrative purposes.

The statistical analysis of anonymous data records remains reserved. This means, for example: I would like to know which post on my website was viewed how often.

What I don't do is fingerprinting because it would be tantamount to tracking your activity. Fingerprinting is the evaluation of your digital fingerprint, which can be derived from the above-mentioned data that is transmitted when you visit a website.

The legal basis for my data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. The legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. The anonymously collected data of the server log files are always stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person. A merger is not possible.


Cookies are used on this website to enable the use of certain functions and to make visiting this website practical. A cookie is a small piece of data that is created when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on the website user's system. If the server of this website is called up again by the user of the website, the browser of the user of the website sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The server can evaluate the information obtained through this process. In particular, cookies can make it easier to navigate on a website. Cookies are required in particular to enable the functionality of this website (the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO, the protection of the legitimate interests of the operator of this website - I only use cookies in agreement with Art. 5 Para. 1 a GDPR, i.e. according to the principles of lawfulness, processing in good faith, transparency). Unless they are technically necessary cookies (which are kept purely local and are not analyzed further), you will be asked for your consent to the setting of cookies. The use of cookies serves my overriding legitimate interest in an optimized presentation of my offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Website hosting

As part of processing on my behalf, a third party based 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. In doing so, I or my hosting provider process all data that arises as part of the use of my website. This is inventory data, content data, usage data, meta and communication data from interested parties and visitors to my online offer. The processing takes place on the basis of my legitimate interest in making this online offer available efficiently and securely (Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR). We have concluded an order processing contract (AVV) with the third party mentioned above. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that the personal data of our website visitors is only processed according to our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

plugins and tools

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content. The address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://".

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

III. How long is your data stored?

The data processed by me will be processed, deleted or their processing restricted by me in accordance with Art. 17 and Art. 18 DSGVO. I only store your personal data that is generated when you use this website for as long as this is necessary for the above-mentioned purposes. However, if the deletion is opposed to statutory retention requirements, the processing of the data is only restricted, i.e. it is blocked for further use and cannot be processed for other purposes.

The following proof and storage obligations are particularly relevant: 6 years according to Section 257 Paragraph 1 HGB (for trading books, inventories, opening balance sheets, annual accounts, commercial letters, accounting documents, etc.), 10 years according to Section 147 Paragraph 1 AO (books, records , accounting documents, commercial and business letters, documents relevant to taxation, etc.). In addition, it may happen that personal data is kept for the time in which claims can be asserted against me (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).

IV. What do I process your data for (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

I process the data generated by visiting this website or using the contact options offered in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Depending on the issue for which you contact me via the website, there are different legal bases for this. The specific legal basis for data processing depends on the context and purpose for which I receive your data. As a rule, the legal basis for data processing results from the following options:

Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which I obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. A given consent can be revoked at any time.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR.

If I am subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 c DSGVO.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail.

V. Disclosure of your personal data to third parties

IP addresses are automatically transmitted to the server on which the website is operated when you visit a website. These IP addresses are always passed on to third parties when a third-party component (a script, an image, a font, another digital resource) is integrated into the website. The components included on this website are listed in this data protection declaration. The recipients of your IP address or categories of recipients can also be derived from this.

Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. I only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR,

  • the transfer according to Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,

  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for the transfer according to Art. 6 Para. 1 c DSGVO, as well as

  • this is legally permissible and necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you according to Art. 6 Para. 1 b DSGVO.

VI. What data protection rights do you have?

You have the right:

  • to request information about your personal data processed by me in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO. In particular, you can obtain information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to correction, deletion, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a Right to complain, the origin of your data, if not collected from me, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if necessary, meaningful information about their details;

  • in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, to immediately request the correction of incorrect or incomplete personal data stored by me;

  • According to Art. 17 GDPR, to request the deletion of your personal data stored by me, unless the processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfill a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims is required;

  • pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse to delete it and I no longer need the data, but you use them to assert, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR;

  • in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR, to receive your personal data that you have provided to me in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request transmission to another person responsible;

  • pursuant to Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR, to revoke the consent you have given me at any time. As a result, I am no longer allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent for the future and

  • According to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or work or the location of the place of the alleged violation if the data subject believes that the processing of personal data concerning them violates the GDPR.

Revocation of a consent given by you

A given consent can be revoked at any time. Please note that the revocation only applies to the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.

VII. What should be considered with links to other websites?

My website contains links to third party websites or to other websites under my responsibility. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that I accept no responsibility or liability for these policies. Please review this privacy policy before voluntarily providing any personal information to these websites.

Only when you click on an external link will data be transferred to the link target.

This is technically necessary due to the protocol on which the Internet is based (TCP – Transfer Control Protocol). The data transmitted is in particular: your IP address, the time at which you clicked on the link, the page on which you clicked on the link and other information specified under Section II No. 1 of this notice.

Individual links can mean a data transfer to non-European countries. As a result, it may be possible for foreign third parties, authorities or secret services to receive connection data. If you do not want the data mentioned to be transferred to the link destination or to the third parties mentioned or to be accessed by others, do not click on the link.

VII. Objection to promotional e-mails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published as part of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising being sent, such as spam e-mails.

IX. Changes to this Privacy Policy

I reserve the right to change this data protection declaration if the legal situation or this online offer or the type of data collection changes. However, this only applies to declarations on data processing. If the user's consent is necessary or parts of the data protection declaration contain a regulation of the contractual relationship with users, the data protection declaration will only be changed with the consent of the user. If necessary, please inform yourself about this data protection declaration, especially if you provide personal data.
