Your rights in detail:

Your right to withdraw your consent to data processing

Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent (e. g. processing a message that you have sent via the contact form). You can withdraw your given consent at any time. All you need to do is send me an e-mail to let me know.

In addition, you can request the correction, blocking or deletion of your personal data at any time. If you wish your personal data to be deleted, I will delete all personal data relating to you without delay. Since your personal data may be inseparably linked to data relating to your projects, I ask for your understanding that I may not be able to provide information to you about services already provided for you or requested by you after you initiated the deletion of your complete personal data. Alternatively, you can opt for the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For example, you can allow me to continue to store your data in order to keep the project information associated with the data, but object to the use of your data for availability information. You will then no longer receive any availability information from me, but your personal data and the associated project information will remain stored in my system.
