Who we are
Our website address is: http://insidersguidetoenergy.com.
The operator of this website collects, processes and uses personal data of a user without further consent only to the extent necessary for the establishment and execution of contracts and for billing purposes.
Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (data subject).
In this respect, the collection of data means the acquisition of data by the data subject him/herself. In addition to storing and deleting, processing also includes changing, blocking and transmitting personal data. Use is any use of personal data that does not involve processing. If necessary, inventory and traffic data of the customer can be passed on to companies associated with the operator of the website. The operator of this website is entitled to provide information to law enforcement agencies and courts for the purpose of criminal prosecution in accordance with the applicable legal provisions. The operator of this website may evaluate the customer’s inventory and traffic data for market research purposes or have them evaluated by third parties. The customer can object to this by contacting the data protection officer.
The author reserves the right not to be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims regarding damage caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected. All offers are not-binding and without obligation. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the author without separate announcement.
Referrals and links
The author is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from his pages – unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site from viewing those pages. If any damage occurs by the use of information presented there, only the author of the respective pages might be liable, not the one who has linked to these pages. Furthermore, the author is not liable for any postings or messages published by users of discussion boards, guestbooks or mailinglists provided on his page.
The author intended not to use any copyrighted material for the publication or, if not possible, to indicate the copyright of the respective object. The copyright for any material created by the author is reserved. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author’s agreement.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Inventory data is personal data that is required to establish or change the contractual relationship between the operator of this website and the user. This includes, among other things, the name and address, date of birth, telephone, e-mail address and payment data of the user.
The operator of this website will only forward inventory data to third parties if this is necessary for the provision of the service.
The operator of this website will only process and use the inventory data for the purposes of advertising, customer advice or market research if this is necessary and the user has consented to this. The user can revoke this consent in writing at any time.
The provision in §29 BDSG permits the businesslike collection, storage or alteration of personal data for the purpose of transmission, in particular in connection with the activities of credit agencies. Credit agencies link personal data originating from different sources and transmit them to third parties. The operator of this website is obliged to provide such credit agencies with the necessary data.
Traffic data is data that is collected, processed or used in the course of providing a telecommunications service. The operator of this website or a third party used by the operator of this website to provide the telecommunication services collects traffic data in order to enable the use of these services and to be able to invoice the respective user. As a rule, the date and time as well as the time zone of the beginning and end of use, the volume in bytes, the IP address and the type of teleservice used are recorded. The aforementioned data is stored for up to six months after the invoice has been sent, unless longer storage is provided for within the scope of the statistics functions activated by the user. Insofar as billing with other companies or with other service providers or legal regulations require, the operator of this website may use, store and transmit traffic data.
