Contact & Legal


I do not allow using my contact data (including email address and phone numbers) for sending me marketing flyers, general prospects, etc. without my explicit authorization. As an exception to this, you may send me IT-related product or company information one single time only and I'll try responding you appropriately; please allow a short delay depending on current project requirements.

You may ask for validation, review or comment on your programs, products and technologies (without liabilities or further obligations) but this must be based on full functional product versions (or NFR). Any trial, ad-ware or time-bombed software product will be sent to trash immediately without response.


Please choose your preferred contact method. I suggest using email, if you dislike my answering machine.

Electronic signatures  Key

It's still complex to use data encryption within email, but for certain confidential information you might require an appropriate level of trust. So choose one of my public keys for PGP transmission.
