Protecting personally identifiable information (PII) under GDPR

General Data Protection Regulation Compliance (GDPR Compliance)

My websites are prepared to meet the requirements of the GDPR, the new data protection law coming into force on May 25, 2018. It affects European and non-European businesses using online advertising and measurement solutions when their sites and apps are accessed by users in the European Economic Area (EEA). As new obligations are placed on all organizations that offer goods and services online I have decided against using measurement services, online advertising services or Cloud services. That simple.

Commitment to privacy

To help protect your privacy I strive to explain my online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

Thomas Winterstetter declines any liability with regard to information or material that is put on one of the sites linked to from this website. The fact that a link is created to a website of a third party or that a third party website is allowed to contain a link to this website does not mean that Thomas Winterstetter approves or recommends the products or services offered, nor does it give an implicit or explicit judgement in relation to the accuracy and / or reliability of that information which, directly or indirectly, can be found on the websites of third parties or with regard to the reliability and / or decency of third parties.

Use of Cookies

This website (notably its content management system) may serve cookies. No third-party cookies are served though (third-party cookies are cookies set by a website other than the one you are currently on). Cookies are text files stored in the memory of your browser to facilitate your visit to this website (e.g. language choice). These cookies are read each time you visit this website. The information stored in cookies is not private and might also be read by third parties. If you do not want cookies to be stored on your system, please adjust the security and privacy settings in your browser.

Your consent

Continued use of my websites constitutes an agreement to the processing of collected data. “Processing” means using or touching the data in any way, including collecting, storing, deleting, using, combining, and disclosing data, in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Your rights

You may exercise your right to access your personal information and right to rectify it by sending me an email. I may need to verify your identity prior to disclosing any personal information in order to ensure that I am not disclosing personal information to, or about, the wrong person.


I use certain efforts to secure my websites such as firewalls and authentication protection. I will periodically review my security policies and implement changes from time to time. However, the Internet is not a risk-free place for communication and for that reason, I cannot and do not guarantee complete security, as it does not exist on the Internet. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adequate anti-virus software, firewalls, and protection in place.

Legally required disclosures

I may be required, by applicable law, subpoena, court order or other legal processes, to disclose your personal information to a third party (such as a regulator or proposed purchaser of my business and its advisors), and it is my policy to comply with any such requirements to the extent permitted by applicable law.
