Privacy policy declaration

For the use of this web-application, data on the farm and the biogas plant are requested (e.g. type of farming, amount of electricity feed-in, installed nominal power of the CHPU). The data is needed to calculate the greenhouse gas emissions. With the termination of the page visit or the closing of the application, this data expires irrevocably and cannot be restored. The data is not stored or passed on to third parties.
For technical reasons, each page visit is temporarily logged by the web server. This logging includes:

  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • Name and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file/webpage
  • Webpage from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Amount of data transferred

For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to individual users. The data is processed exclusively for this purpose and in anonymized form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data or passed on to third parties, even in excerpts.


Under certain circumstances, anonymized status information is stored on your computer in the form of cookies. This status information is required for technical reasons for a short period of time to control the process. It loses its relevance after you have visited the webpage.


Despite careful examination, no guarantee can be given for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information offered. The use of this web-application does not establish a contractual relationship between user and publisher. Notwithstanding the provisions of § 675 section 2 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the following limitation of liability applies to the information provided: We are not liable for any damages arising from the use or non-use of this Internet offer. We are not liable for any damage caused by malware or the installation or use of software when calling up or downloading data. This exclusion of liability does not apply

  • in the case of intentional or grossly negligent causation of damage or in the case of injury to life, limb, or health by employees of the Free State of Bavaria
  • to the extent that the provisions of Section 839 of the German Civil Code (liability for breach of official duty) are relevant
  • for information falling within the scope of the European Services Directive (Directive 2006/123/EC - DLRL). For this information, the accuracy and timeliness is guaranteed.

We expressly reserve the right to change, supplement or delete individual web pages or the entire offer without prior notice, or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently. This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain uninfluenced by this fact.

Hyperlinks and references

A distinction must be made between our own content and cross-references ("external links") to the websites of other providers. Through these cross-references, we provide access to the use of "external content". In the case of cross-references to "external content" ("external links"), a new window opens. We are not responsible for such "external content" in accordance with § 8 of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz), as we did not initiate the transmission of the information and did not select or change the addressee of the transmitted information or the transmitted information. Also an automatic short-term intermediate storage of these "foreign contents" does not take place due to the selected call and linking method, so that thereby no responsibility for these "foreign contents" results for us. When first linking to these Internet offers, we have checked these external contents to see whether they could trigger a possible civil or criminal liability. However, we cannot constantly check these external contents for changes and therefore cannot assume any responsibility for them. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and especially for damages resulting from the use or non-use of information provided by third parties, the respective provider of the site is solely liable.

Active components

Active components in the form of JavaScript are used in our offer. This function can be switched off by you through the settings of your Internet browser. The offer cannot be used error-free without active components.

Electronic mail

Information that you send to us unencrypted by electronic mail (e-mail) can possibly be read by third parties during transmission. As a rule, we are also unable to verify your identity and do not know who is behind an e-mail address. Legally secure communication by simple e-mail is therefore not guaranteed. Like many e-mail providers, we use filters against unwanted advertising ("SPAM filters"), which in rare cases automatically classify even normal e-mails as unwanted advertising by mistake and delete them. E-mails containing harmful programs ("viruses") are automatically deleted by us in any case. Requests and responses to or from other users regarding a link in their own content (participation in initiatives, indication as a partner, etc.) will be indicated by unencrypted e-mails.
