Beware of Tripadvisor – An Update

Let me get a little bit off-topic today: After my earlier experience with Tripadvisor not willing to delete a negative false review having been posted to my business (check my earlier post for this story), I meanwhile had plenty more very annoying experiences on top, making me highly doubt in ever using them again when […]

We love to believe in the value of change.

Destruction gives place to new.

New often mistaken for better.

Nature, monuments, traditions – nothing sacred.

No questions. No balance.

Emotions and senses vanish.

Lost vocabulary: dignity and respect.

Priceless universal goods traded for profit.

Temptations plentiful.

Consequences ignored.

Our grandchildren will hold us responsible.

Acting today impacts the future.

We shall better preserve.

We shall better take care.

Irreversible destruction is everlasting.

Send me a message and I'll get back to you shortly. Please double-check your email address entered!

Cameras, lenses, and accessories are tools for creating visions, not more and not less. Each tool has pros and cons in handling and capabilities, each has its raison d’être for different projects; no ideology wars. The following selection simply reflects personal preferences for my photographic workflow, style, and philosophy.

Information is collected in several ways. For example, some personal information is gathered when you checkout for payment filling in shipping and billing information. You may as well be asked for your email address. If you contact me I may keep a record of that correspondence.

For analytical purpose data such as approximate location (country, city), visited pages on the website, and technical data about the devices visiting the website can be collected. Using anonymized and aggregated data ensures that a single user will not be singled out.

For shipping reasons your address information can be passed to a delivery service. In case other companies are hired to provide limited services like packaging and processing only the information needed to deliver the service will be provided, and any partner is contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Beyond that no information will be disclosed except having your permission or under special circumstances, such as when believing in good faith the law requires, or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed.
