Legal note

For the German folks, here is the voluntary legal note (Impresum) for the websites, and


by hak the lawyer

Since this website is private, for free, for informational purposes only, and not targeted to a specific audience, country or region, the following legal note is provided voluntaryly.

This voluntary legal note serves two purposes: (i) transparency - to provide you with information about the author of this website, i.e., hak the lawyer, and (ii) precaution - because there are always people lawyers on the dark side, such who send warning letters to others alleging missing legal notes.
