Privacy

 

Liability:

1. Content warning
The free, freely accessible content on this website has been created with the utmost of care. The provider of this website, however, does not offer any guarantee for the correctness or currentness of the freely accessible journalistic advice and/or news provided free of charge. Content for which the source has been named represents the author’s opinion and not necessarily the provider’s opinion. Simply accessing freely accessible content does not form a contractual relationship between the user and the provider insofar as the provider has no intention to initiate legal relations.

2. External links
This website contains links to third party websites (external links). These websites are solely subject to the liability of the relevant operator. The provider checked the external content of the external link at the time of linking to establish any legal violations. There were no obvious legal violations at that time. The provider has no influence over the current or future design or content of linked pages. The use of external links does not mean that the provider is claiming the content accessible via the link as their own. It is not feasible for the provider to constantly review external links without specific suspicions of legal violations. If the provider becomes aware of a legal violation, the affected links will be removed immediately.

3. Copyright and intellectual property rights
The content published on this website is subject to German copyright and intellectual property law. Any use not permitted by German copyright and intellectual property law requires written permission in advance from the provider or relevant legal owner. This particularly applies to the reproduction, editing, translation, saving, processing and presentation of content in databases or other electronic media or systems. Third party content and rights are labelled as such. Reproducing or
passing on specific content or complete pages without permission is not permitted and may result in prosecution. Copies and downloads may be made for personal, private, non-commercial use.

This website may only be presented in external frames with written permission.

4. Privacy
The provider expressly states that data transfer on the internet (e.g. through email communication) runs the risk of security breaches and cannot be protected from third party access in full.

Use of contact details as provided in the legal notice for commercial purposes is expressly not desired, unless the provider has granted written permission or a business relationship already exists. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to their data being used or passed on for any commercial purpose.

Personal data
1. Scope of personal data processed
We only collect and use our users’ personal data insofar as necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services.

Exceptions are made in such cases where it is not possible to obtain consent in advance and the data must be processed to comply with statutory regulations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain consent from the affected person for data processing processes, article 6 paragraph 1 a of the EU’s GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

If the processing is required to uphold a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party that outweighs the interests, fundamental rights and basic freedoms of the data subject, article 6 paragraph 1 f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and duration of storage
The relevant person’s personal data shall be deleted or frozen as soon as the purpose of its storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if stipulated by European or national law in union law acts, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Data may also be deleted or blocked if required by the retention deadlines stipulated by such norms unless there is a requirement of further data storage to fulfil or conclude a contract.
