“Get involved” Contact Form
Participating in the “Get Involved” interview is voluntary. You can use my website without taking part in the project. However, if you decide to respond to the questions and send it to me, I require an E-mail address in order to get in contact with you in relation to the interview. I will not add you to my newsletter without your consent.
In addition, by submitting this contact form you agree for your text to be altered from its original in order to fit the format of this project. You can always contact me to request a change or the deletion of your interview form my website.
Newsletter & Contact Forms
If you have signed up or agreed to receive my newsletters or other update services, me and Mailchimp will process your contact data (e.g. name, e-mail) to provide you with our newsletter or other services. We use your name to personalise our services via E-Mail and to identify you, in case you would like to exercise your rights as listed above.
To further optimise the user experience and in particular to tailor the information provided to you, we process information on your specified preferences, if any, and in some instances, follow your consumption of material (user statistics). Therefore, in case you would like to receive our newsletter, you have to provide us with a valid e-mail-address and your name. Providing further information about yourself is optional.
To ensure that it was actually the owner of an e-mail address, who subscribed to my newsletter, I am using a so-called “double-opt-in” procedure. After subscribing to our newsletter, I send an automated e-mail to confirm the subscription, including a request to confirm the subscription. Additional to that, I do not collect more data during this process.
All newsletter activities and other update services serve marketing purposes and business development. To get unsubscribed, please send an E-mail to the Contact information at the bottom of this page.

5- How I protect your data
Encryption by SSL
For security reasons, this website uses SSL encryption (‘Secure Sockets Layer’). This protects transmitted data and cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize a successful encryption by the fact that the protocol name in the browser’s status bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and that a closed lock symbol is visible there.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
After concluding a contract with a fee (e.g. booking a workshop, purchasing a voucher), you have to provide your payment data (e.g. account number for direct debit authorization). This data is required for payment processing.
Payment transactions via the usual methods of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change of the address line of the browser from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. In the case of encrypted communication, your payment data cannot be read by third parties.
6. Changes Of The Privacy Notice
I reserve the right to change the privacy notice and adapt it to new standards. For each of your visits the current version of the privacy notice applies.
