This WordPress instance has been re-designed to get rid of all trackers, cookies, links to “social” networks and other corporate interests (e.g. the Facebook button or the infamous Google font cookie ). We are constantly updating and improving the CMS to create an even better data-protected view and user experience for you. As a journalist, our Founder Markus Feilner has accompanied major players during the creation of the European Data Protection Rules (esp. the GDPR, see photo to the right).
However, some links (e.g. to Youtube videos or similar, sometimes bring in their own “stuff” – we are striving to remove these from linked content, too!). Thank you for your patience, please keep us updated if you notice unwanted behaviour.
And here’s the lawyers’ stuff:
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.
All IPs logged by our monitoring systems are instantaneously anonymized — too bad for us and the SEO specialists, but good for you.

2. The rights of users and data subjects
With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right to:

- to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users have a right to information about these recipients.

In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.
