Privacy Policy

This is a private site with no commercial interests whatever. I do not give any information about your visits to anyone else, and have no intention to do so in the future.

My website is hosted by IN-Berlin, a noncommercial organization that offers high-speed DSL lines with fixed IP addresses. Since I do like to know about the popularity of my pages, I have put small images into each page that refer back to my home site, where Apache does keep the usual logs. Such small images have become known, and abused, as "web bugs" but I do not use them for an evil purpose. (I get about 1000-1200 page downloads per day; not counting cached retrievals and people who disable web bugs.)


Copyright (C) 1995-2014 by Thomas Driemeyer

Oh no, a copyright, is that really necessary? Not really, because all publications fall under a default copyright. Mine grants rights not granted by the default one. You are free to copy or reprint any of my pages as long as two conditions are met: I am clearly identified as the author, and there is an URL in an obvious visible location that points back to the original URL at

The idea is that I spent considerable time and effort to create all these pages, and all I get in return is recognition of my name, and discussions about the contents that I enjoy. I want this to stay that way and would feel ripped off if the pages were used without attribution.

I often get asked whether it's ok to link to my pages. Yes, sure, go ahead and link all you like. Occasionally I search for links to my pages and consider the number of links I find an indication of their value.

If you have problems with this copyright, tell me, we'll come to an agreement.


German law requires that the maintainer of a web site supplies information about the maintainer. I think that only applies to commercial sites, but I got this free template so here we go:

Anbieter: Thomas Driemeyer
Adresse: Linienstraße 215, 10119 Berlin
Telefon: 030-89377331
Umsatzsteuer-Identifikationsnummer entfällt; dieses Angebot ist eine private Homepage und ich habe keine USt-Nummer.

Inhaltlich Verantwortlicher gemäß §10 Absatz 3 MDStV: Thomas Driemeyer (Anschrift wie oben).

Sperrerklärung: Bitte keine amtlichen Dokumente per Email schicken, sondern den Schriftweg einhalten. Ich bekomme täglich Tausende von Spams, und Mail kommt oft garnicht oder stark verspätet an.

Haftungshinweis: Trotz sorgfältiger inhaltlicher Kontrolle übernehme ich keine Haftung für die Inhalte externer Links. Für den Inhalt der verlinkten Seiten sind ausschließlich deren Betreiber verantwortlich.
