If you find this ridiculous, I couldn’t agree more. Unfortunately, while no legal expert can really tell for sure what GDPR exactly implies for persons operating a website at the moment I am writing this, it appears one has to make something like following statements:
holm-huemmler.de is a private homepage by a German individual and therefore has to adhere to German and European privacy regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR/DSGVO), the German data protection law (BDSG) and the German tele media law (TMG). Regarding all privacy issues, please contact me. My address is on the start page.
This page is hosted by Strato AG, Berlin. To ensure quality and safety of their service, Strato keeps log files of any access to the page. In these log files, the host names and IP addresses of accessing computers can be stored for a maximum of 7 days. In addition, these log files contain the time and date of access, files accessed, amount of data transferred, transfer success information, country, operating system, browser, internet provider and referring page. I have no access to these non-anonymized log files, and I cannot edit or delete any data stored by the provider. For any information regarding the data stored by the provider, please contact Strato AG directly. What I can access are anonymous, statistical evaluations of website access and log files in which host names and IP addresses are anonymized. Thus, the addresses cannot be directly linked to a specific computer or user.
