Although DemocracyNet takes all possible care to ensure the correctness of published information, no warranty can be accepted regarding the correctness, accuracy, uptodateness, reliability, and completeness of the content of this information.
DemocracyNet expressly reserves the right to change, to delete or temporarily not to publish the contents wholly or partly at any time and without giving notice.
DemocracyNet has not checked third party web sites, i.e., web sites not located on its servers or in its area of influence, that may be connected to this web site via links, and does not accept any responsibility for the contents or the services offered thereon.
The contents of this website, including texts and pictures, are protected by copyright.
Personal data (usually referred to just as “data” below) will only be processed by us to the extent necessary and for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website, including its contents, and the services offered there.
Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.
For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files may record the type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.
The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Newsletter, mailing list
If you register for our free newsletter or mailing list, the data requested from you for this purpose, i.e., your email address and, optionally, your name, will be sent to us. The data collected will be used exclusively to send the newsletter or mailing list and will not be passed on to third parties.
You may revoke your prior consent to receive this newsletter or mailing list with future effect. All you have to do is inform us that you are revoking your consent or click on the unsubscribe link on this page.
If you contact us via email or a contact form, the data you provide will be used for the purpose of processing your request. We must have this data in order to process and answer your inquiry; otherwise we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.
Your data will be deleted once we have fully answered your inquiry and there is no further legal obligation to store your data.
Social media links via graphics
We also integrate the following social media sites into our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective site. The use of these graphics stored on our own servers prevents the automatic connection to the servers of these networks for their display. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will you be forwarded to the service of the respective social network.
Once you click, that network may record information about you and your visit to our site. It cannot be ruled out that such data will be processed in the United States.
Initially, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and the page visited. If you are logged into your user account on that network, however, the network operator might assign the information collected about your visit to our site to your personal account. If you interact by clicking Like, Share, etc., this information can be stored your personal user account and possibly posted on the respective network. To prevent this, you need to log out of your social media account before clicking on the graphic. The various social media networks also offer settings that you can configure accordingly.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by linked graphics:
Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
