We strive to ensure that the information on this site is up to date, accurate and complete. Errors may nevertheless occur. For this reason we cannot guarantee the completeness, accuracy and absolute up-to-dateness of the content. We appreciate being informed of errors. The publisher may change this Web site at his own discretion at any time and without warning. He is, however, obligated to keep the content of the Web site up to date.
The user accesses and uses this Web site at his own risk. The Commissioner is not liable for any damages, including direct, indirect, incidental, special and consequential damages that may allegedly occur in connection with access to and/or use of this Web site.
The Federal Commissioner for the Records of the State Security Service of the former German Democratic Republic (BStU) offers as a service, not only his own Web site, but also references (hyperlinks) to external content. Access to this external content has been facilitated by the BStU Web site, but not appropriated as its own.
Links are included on the Web site only when the Web site editors deem their content at the time of incorporation to not be in violation of German law.
Despite regular examination of foreign content, it may occur that occasional unlawful or criminal content appears on the site or that you are referred directly or indirectly to pages with illegal content.
Access data may be stored when contents are requested. This includes data about the page that sent the request, the name of the requested file, the date, time and length of the request, the amount of transferred data and the access status (for example file transferred, file not found). This stored date is evaluated solely for statistical purposes and under no circumstances will it be transferred to a third party.
If the opportunity is given to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses), the input of this data is provided by the user expressly on a voluntary basis.
The BStU takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we collect data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data privacy rules are observed not only by our agency, but also by external service providers.
