As there is currently no comprehensive definition of lobbying expenses, we are guided by the applicable transparency requirements and publish the lobbying expenses in Brussels (in accordance with the "Agreement between the European Parliament and the European Commission on the transparency register for organizations and self-employed individuals engaged in EU policy-making and policy implementation" -> https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/de/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2014.277.01.0011.01.ENG ) and in Washington for T-Mobile USA (in accordance with the "Lobbying Disclosure Act [LDA]" -> https://lobbyingdisclosure.house.gov/ldaguidance.pdf ).

We are guided by the principle of respecting the independence and integrity of our political interlocutors. For this reason, we welcomed the creation of a European lobbying and transparency register from the outset and were one of the first companies to register. We support the introduction of a transparency and lobbying register for the German Bundestag and the German government. As soon as requirements are defined for Germany, we will publish corresponding information.

We want to create a safe and positive online experience for children and young people. We offer them attractive, exciting content on age-appropriate websites.
Supporting standardized child protection offers
We became a member of the non-profit organization JusProg e.V. in 2016. Its software protects children and young people on the internet by blocking certain content.
This software has been officially recognized as a general child protection program in Germany in accordance with statutory requirements (JMStV). The software was most recently evaluated in March 2017.
We donated the rights to the program codes behind our child protection software (Windows) and our child protection app, Surfgarten, (iPhone/iPad) to JusProg e.V.
Commitment to FSM
We are a founding member and part of the executive board of FSM, the Association for the Voluntary Self-Monitoring for Multimedia Service Providers. The association published the “Index for Youth Media Protection” for the first time in 2017. The 2018 youth media protection report specifically addressed teachers and educational specialists.
