I take no responsibility for the Blog being temporarily unavailable due to technical problems beyond my control.

If not, I do not claim the copyright for these images, nor do I own them.

In case of an actual copyright infringement and after examining such a request the concerned pictures or content will be removed as soon as possible.


A cookie is a small file containing information that certain websites place on internet users’ computers. My Blog itself does not use any cookies. However, this site runs third-party advertising programs which may place cookies on the website and user’s browsers to collect non-personally identifying, anonymous information in order to display ads on this site.

Data Protection

The visit or use of my Blog is generally possible without the indication of personal data by its visitors or users. However, in case that personal data of the users of my Blog is collected in order for them to be able to use certain applications (e.g indication of name, e-mail address for the newsletter, or for posting comments, etc. see also in the next paragraph ), the collection of such data is carried out solely upon voluntary basis. Such data are furthermore not transferred to third parties without the express approval of its owner. As most blogs do, also my Blog’s web server collects anonymous statistical data such as number of visits, pages viewed, browser used, keywords typed, etc. The visitor’s IP address is collected for this purpose.

In order to post a comment, visitors are required to provide their email address and name (or pseudonym). Users’ email addresses will never be shared or sold to any third party unless required by law. Security measures such as passwords, firewalls and antivirus programs are in place to prevent any unauthorized access to this information. While every effort is made to protect users’ personal information, I cannot be held liable for any fraudulent access by an unauthorized third party. If you choose to disclose your personal information, you do so at your own risk. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages and I reserve the right to delete any message at our discretion.

The protection of personal Data and being compliant with applicable Data Protection Laws is very important to me. The use of personal data in this Blog is therefore treated in accordance to the applicable Data Protection Acts and Rules and the Telecommunications Act.


It is up to me to publish or delete any comments. If, in my opinion, comments are not appropriate to be published they will be deleted permanently without prior warning. Comments which purposely insult me as a person, my Blog or third parties, will also be deleted.


The Vienna Blog contains links to third-party websites. I have no control over the content or the availability of those sites and I am in no way liable for them. The inclusion of a link does not necessarily imply that I recommend the site linked to or endorse the views expressed within. The links placed on this Blog include links from affiliate partners.

Sponsors & Affiliate Programs

I do not claim to share the views or expressions of those companies I receive items from. Some of the links posted on this blog, Facebook page and Twitter may be affiliate links. I do not persuade my readers to buy these items. It is their own choice to visit these links. Posts that are sponsored or include affiliate links are categorized under “Sponsors & Affiliate Ads”.

**This information may be changed or updated at any time without prior notice.


Google Analytics

On my Blog I use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help me to analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of my Blog (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Blog, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Blog. By using this Blog, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Social Plugins (eg. Facebook, Twitter, …)

On my Blog I use social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo. When you visit a page of my Blog that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of this Blog. Thus I have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin. The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed via the corresponding page of this Blog. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is a possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook. For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook’s privacy policy: If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to my Blog with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering my Blog. The same may apply for other Social Plugins, such as Twitter or Instagram.
