Content from other providers

Although any links included on our website are carefully chosen, we have no influence on the content or design of other websites to which you may be referred either directly or indirectly. For this reason we accept no liability or responsibility for their correctness or completeness. This applies both to all links listed on our website and to the content of websites accessed through such links.

While all links posted on our website to the websites of other providers (“content from other providers”) have been scrupulously checked and are to the best of our knowledge complete and correct, we cannot guarantee that this is the case. The Federal Foreign Office has no influence over the current or future content of other providers’ websites or the content of websites to which we post a link. We therefore take no responsibility for the content of other providers’ websites to which we post a link.

This also applies to the content of other websites which are integrated technically into the Federal Foreign Office websites and are identified as such.

Please also inform us of anything that is erroneous, out-of-date, incomplete or unintelligible on our own website. You can use our contact form to advise us of such problems.

Own content

Anything posted on our website pertaining to laws and regulations, official notices and recommendations as well as all other information has been scrupulously checked and is to the best of our knowledge correct. Should you note any inconsistencies, however, the sole authoritative text is the currently applicable version published in the relevant official organ. Recommendations and information relating to legal matters are furnished without any guarantee; we do not provide a legal advice service.

Statement regarding the collation and use of personal data

Each time a user accesses the Internet content of the Federal Foreign Office or calls up a file, data on this activity is temporarily stored and processed in a log file.

Each item of data is anonymised before storage by changing the IP address.

Specifically, the following data is stored each time content is accessed:

  • anonymised IP address,
  • date and time,
  • accessed page/name of accessed file,
  • amount of data transmitted,
  • notification whether the process was successful.

This data is evaluated solely for statistical and quality‑related purposes and is subsequently deleted.

It is not used for other purposes or transferred to third parties.

Accessing individual pages generates so‑called transient cookies to facilitate navigation. These session cookies contain no personal data and are erased at the end of the session. Technology such as Java applets and activeX controls which allows user access behaviour to be monitored is not used.

Postal and email addresses supplied in connection with enquiries or requests for information material are used solely for correspondence and shipping respectively.

Feedback

We would be grateful if you could let us know if the content of websites to which we have posted a link is in any respect objectionable. Please let us also know of anything that is erroneous, out-of-date, incomplete, unintelligible etc. on our own website.
