hello (at) sarah-schmitt.com
- Informational use of my website
If you use the website for informational purposes only, i.e., without logging in, registering or otherwise providing me with information to use the website, I do not collect any personal data, except for the following data your browser sends and that allow you to visit my website:
- IP address
- date and time of the request
- time zone difference
- content of the request (concrete page)
- access status/http status code
- amount of data transmitted in each case
- website from which the request comes
- operating system and its interface
- language and version of the browser software
Your data is stored in the form of log files for 6 months in order to be able to analyse and remedy any technical problems. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) f GDPR (legitimate interests). Due to the nature of the Internet, this data is inevitably processed on many servers until your request reaches my web server; therefore, it is also possible to collect and use this data in “third countries” (e.g., the USA). I do not have any influence on this process. Apart from these technical necessities, the provider of this website does not transmit any personal data to countries outside the scope of the EU data protection regulation or without an adequate level of data protection.
Your data provided is not given to third parties or third countries by me.
My website is hosted on the servers of ALL-INKL.COM – Neue Medien Münnich, owner: René Münnich, Hauptstraße 68, 02742 Friedersdorf, Germany.
In order to guarantee an excellent level of data protection, I have concluded a contract with the company ALL-INKL.COM that regulates the observance of all data protection regulations and prohibits the passing on of data to third parties.
- Contact form
When you contact me via the contact form on the website or via e-mail, I store your first and last name, e-mail address, the content of your message and files you may have uploaded or attached to elaborate a quote or reply to your questions.
Your message will be sent by e-mail via the mail server of the company ALL-INKL.COM – Neue Medien Münnich, owner: René Münnich, Hauptstraße 68, D-02742 Friedersdorf. I have concluded a data processing contract with my partner to guarantee an excellent level of data protection.
If you use the contact form to obtain information about my services, the processing of your personal data for this purpose is based on Art. 6 (1) b GDPR (performance of a contract).
In all other cases, I have a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR in data processing because I process the data in order to answer enquiries received via the contact form.
- Transfer to third parties
I use your data only within the scope of the consent. The data will not be passed on to third parties unless this is necessary to fulfil the contractual relationship with you or to provide the services you have selected or unless there is a legal or official obligation to do so.
To operate the website I use a hosting service provider. This results in data transfer and processing by ALL-INKL.COM (see section “Hosting” above).
As a data subject, you have the following rights:
- Right to access your personal data
- Right to request deletion, blocking, rectification and restriction of data processing
- Right to object to further data processing
- Right to revoke any consent you have given with effect for the future
- Right to transmit your data to another person
All requests for information, deletion and correction, requests for data transferability or to withdraw your consent should be addressed to:

Complaint to supervisory authority: You also have the right to submit a complaint to the competent supervisory authority in accordance with the statutory provisions.
This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies serve to make my offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
A distinction is made between so-called transient cookies (temporary use) and persistent cookies (use for a limited time). Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include particularly session cookies. These store a session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie.
However, this only applies if you never visit my website again. This is because each time you visit my website, the deletion period for persistent cookies is reset and starts running again from the beginning. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
You can deactivate the storage of cookies or delete stored cookies in your browser, but this may result in limited functionality, delays or uselessness of certain parts of the website.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to me as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Standard periods for the deletions and blocking of personal data
Your personal data will only be stored for as long as it is necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this is required or provided for by legal regulations. If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by law expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
I maintain up-to-date technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of processing to protect your personal data from risks during data transmission and from third parties gaining knowledge of them. These are adapted to the current state of the art, the need for protection of personal data and the risks to your rights and freedoms.
- YOAST SEO
For SEO optimisation purposes, this website uses the Yoast SEO plugin, a service provided by Yoast BV, Don Emanuelstraat 3, 6602 GX Wijchen, The Netherlands, on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. In your browser settings, you can prevent the setting of cookies if you do not agree to this. You can find further information at https://yoast.com/privacy-policy/.
- Akismet Anti-Spam
This website uses the “Akismet” service provided by Automattic Inc, 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. The use is based on our legitimate interests in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. With the help of this service, comments of real people are distinguished from spam comments. All comments are sent to a server in the USA, where they are analysed and stored for four days for comparison purposes. If a comment has been classified as spam, the data is stored beyond this time. This information includes the name entered, the email address, the IP address, the comment content, the referrer, information about the browser used, the computer system and the time of the entry.
Users are welcome to use pseudonyms or to refrain from entering their name or email address. You can completely prevent the transmission of data by not using our comment system. That would be a shame, but unfortunately we don’t see any other alternatives that work just as effectively.
Social Media plugins
This website uses functions of the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Each time one of our pages containing LinkedIn functions is accessed, a connection to LinkedIn servers is established. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website with you and your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn.
This website uses functions of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time one of our pages containing XING functions is called up, a connection to XING servers is established. As far as we are aware, no personal data is stored in this process. In particular, no IP addresses are stored, or usage behaviour evaluated.
My social media networks are linked to this website. By pressing the social media button, data will be processed.
My Whatsapp contact is linked to this website with a Whatsapp button. By pressing this button, data will be processed.
- Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps via an API to display interactive maps and to show my location and office. Google Maps is a map service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA.
By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function, may be transmitted to Google in the USA. The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
When you visit a website on my website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated into the website by it. I therefore have no influence on the extent of the data collected in this way by Google. To the best of our knowledge, this is at least the following data:
• Date and time of the visit to the website concerned;
• Internet address or URL of the website accessed;
• IP address, the (start) address entered during route planning.
I have no influence on the further processing and use of the personal data by Google. I am also not aware of the full scope of the collection of personal data, the purpose of processing, the period for which the personal data will be stored and the erasure of personal data.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Google’s data protection information (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en).
