Liability for the content

As the website operator, I am responsible for the content of my website in accordance with general legal regulations. All information and notes have been compiled with the greatest care based on my many years of experience and correspond to the current state of knowledge about European tortoises. Nevertheless I cannot take responsibility for the correctness. 

All texts and pictures come from me.

Liability for links

My website does not normally contain links to third party websites. I don't run a guest book either, so there are usually no links to other sites  can be integrated by third parties. Should I nevertheless notice such links or other legal violations or become aware of them, I will delete them immediately.

The Testudo-Farm homepage, including all of its parts, is protected by copyright. Any use outside the narrow limits of copyright law without my consent is inadmissible and punishable by law. This applies in particular to duplication  Translations, microfilming and the storage and processing in electronic systems. Downloads and copies are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.

Data protection

1. Collection and processing of http protocol data

When visiting my website and each time a file is called up, the web server collects log information about these processes (e.g. browser type, date and time of the call). These are not personal data. It is therefore not possible for me to assign the recorded data to a specific natural person.

All of this information is evaluated by me exclusively for statistical purposes. It will not be passed on to third parties. I do not link this data with other data. The data is also regularly deleted within one week after a statistical analysis.

2. Use of personal data

In principle, you can visit my website without personal data being collected from you. Personal data will only be collected by me and only to the extent that you make them available to me with your knowledge. In particular, this personal data is only used for advertising / market research purposes and to design my services if you have given your express consent.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

The purposes of processing are stated in the relevant places on my website and are not subject to any subsequent change.

The data will only be passed on to third parties without your consent if I am legally obliged to do so.

Cookies are data sets that are sent from the web server to the user's web browser and stored there for later retrieval. You determine whether cookies can be collected by setting your browser in such a way that you are informed before a cookie is saved and that it is only saved if you expressly accept this.

The data records do not contain any personal information. It will not be merged with any personal data you have provided.

4. Use of social plugins

My website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Facebook social plug-in” or “Facebook social plugin”. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance here:

When you call up a page on my website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of my website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can immediately assign your visit to my website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example press the "Like" button or leave a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information:

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via my website directly to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting my website. You can also completely prevent the loading of the Facebook plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker” ( ).
