Notes on the interpretation of the data protection laws in this privacy policy generator

We concur with the opinion of the Conference of Independent Federal and State Data Protection Authorities (Konferenz der unabhängigen Datenschutzbehörden des Bundes und der Länder – DSK) and have adapted our texts to the extent that Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR requires prior consent when using tracking mechanisms that make the behaviour of data subjects on the Internet traceable and when creating user profiles (see this position determination). Should you rely on another legal basis (e.g. legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR), we would like to make you aware of an existing warning and sanction risk. The technical implementation to obtain consent prior to using a cookie can be achieved, for example, by means of Cookiebot or a corresponding plugin in your CMS. We assume no liability for this.
