Furthermore, in Germany the Telemediengesetz (TMG,
Collection of general information by the web server of the provider
The web server of the provider ( on which this website is hosted, collects the following information in a log file for a maximum of 7 days in order to identify cyberattacks and to act accordingly: IP address. We at AQUAD do not have access to these log files.
Website and Data Privacy
The programming of this website is to be separated from the collection of general information by the web server and thus the provider on which this website is hosted (see above).
This website itself does not collect any data or personal information, therefore does not store any, consequently does not evaluate any and therefore does not transmit any data to third parties for order processing (i.e. analysis, advertising, etc.).
The website also does not allow visitors to leave personal data (e.g. comment function). If you wish to contact us, please read the section about "secure contact" (mail, phone, encrypted email).
This website does not leave any cookies, does not collect IP addresses, has no affiliate links, does no user tracking and has no social platform buttons. Nor does it in any other way try to obtain information from visitors.
If you have the impression that this website is doing something that was categorically excluded in the description above, please contact us as described below under "Contact". On the Internet, there is always and on every website (whether encrypted or unencrypted) in principle the danger that despite careful maintenance and the installation of current security patches, unauthorized manipulations by third parties may happen. In that case, this would have to be checked and, if necessary, problems would have to be eliminated, so that we would take immediate action.
Contact If you want to contact AQUAD you are welcome to call us (tel. see above), write a letter or contact us via email (email address see above).
Please note that an unencrypted email can in principle be read by third parties and is therefore to be classified as insecure. Therefore we offer the contact via encrypted email via PGP standard. Please send us a formal contact request and attach your public key. With this we can send you back an email encrypted with your key including our own public PGP key. On this basis further communication can take place. Please keep in mind that you have to encrypt every email to us to ensure data security.
Please understand that we do not provide any computer-level support beyond that, especially how exactly the setup and usage of encrypted emails works and how it is implemented.
Due to the maximum uncertainty regarding data security when using social networks and the corresponding social networks and corresponding software for computers, tablets and smartphones, we do not communicate along these communication channels for the time being. When using these applications, it is not ensured that data is not passed on to third parties, that data will not be passed on to third parties (in fact, it is likely). Should you nevertheless communication channels; the responsibility for all consequences (especially data loss) lies with you.
Storage of data Data will be stored along the above described contact options (telephone, email, mail) for specific purposes and sparingly. Data is not stored in clouds, with external providers (companies or data centers, etc.).
We reserve the right to store all tax-relevant data (invoices as well as name, address, phone number, etc.) in the course of the establishment and existence of a business relationship to be able to comply with all legally stipulated tax-relevant requirements. These data, e.g. invoices and contact data, are stored within the framework of the statutory retention periods. At the same time they are due to the necessity of (repeated) communication within the framework of an existing business relationship and for organizational reasons (e.g. invoicing).
We reserve the right, following consent (see "Consent" below), to store all documents and information sent to us and verbally communicated to us that we require in order to be able to pursue this within the scope of a existing business relationship - in other words, to "do our job". This includes, for example, emails, drafts of research designs, handwritten notes in the context of telephone support, planning workshops, drafting articles or theses in the case of methodological consulting and content coaching, and data sent in the context of data analyses.
We assume no liability for unsolicited materials and documents sent to us.
None of this stored information or documentation will be passed on or communicated to third parties. Exceptions to this are generally criminal offenses (thwarting or prosecution of potential criminal acts as well as the protection of higher legal interests). In this case we have no influence on it, if a higher right is valid and is applied.
Emails are stored by us at the provider, as this is technically not possible otherwise. Therefore, please use only encrypted emails in contact with us, as these cannot be viewed by a provider and unauthorized third parties.
Right to erasure of data The legal situation of the DSGVO provides for a right to erasure of personal data. Upon request, we will of course comply with this immediately upon request. Exceptions are all those data that must be collected and stored due to tax law requirements and stored (including contact details, invoices, receipts). These are stored within the legal deadlines.
Regarding the request for deletion of data, you must notify us in writing. Please note that any further contact with us will then be made more difficult if important information is is lost and no longer available. The responsibility for all consequences resulting from this lies with you.
Information about stored data The DGSVO provides that everyone has a right to be informed about what information is stored about him/her.
For anyone who has never had any personal contact with us, the following applies: Since this website does not collect any data from visitors, you will receive an informal email from us, that no data is stored about you and therefore no further information can be given to you. For legitimate self-interest, we reserve the right to store this informal email in order to be able to prove that we have fulfilled our obligation to provide information.
The following applies to all persons who are in personal contact with us: Please contact us and send us an appropriate request. In return you will receive all data stored about you in the form of an encrypted .zip file.
Right of data portability Should you change within the scope of an existing business relationship to another provider (e.g. method consulting), you have according to DSGVO §20 the right to "take along" your data. In this case, please contact us in writing.
You will receive all data to be passed on according to valid law in the format in which you sent it to us and in which it is stored, or in the format in which you have already received any results (e.g. data analyses, corrections, etc.). Upon request, we will transfer this data to the new provider. To do this, you must release us in writing in advance from the obligation not to pass on data to third parties. You must also provide us with an exact contact address to whom the data will be sent. Data will then be transferred to the new provider in the same form as you receive it.
Consent Please note that all data collected and and stored will be used in principle and exclusively for the purpose of contacts with you to to your satisfaction.
If you do not agree with the above points for whatever reason, please contact us about it in order to clarify the open points. Otherwise it is up to you to refrain from communicating with us.
In the course of an incipient contact or an incipient business relationship we will ask you in writing to give us permission to collect and store data for the purposes described above. You can revoke this authorization at any time, which means, however, that any future contact will be made much more difficult, as we will then be lacking any purpose-related information.
