When contacting the provider (e. g. via contact form or e-mail) the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions.
The follow-up comments can be subscribed by users. The users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they are the owner of the entered email address. Users can unsubscribe from current commentary subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain information about this.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that its owner agrees to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected. This data will only be used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

Integration of services and third-party content
It is possible that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be included in this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on it if the third-party providers store the IP address, e. g. for statistical purposes. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.

Using Facebook Social Plugins
This offer uses social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook. com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the words “Like”,”Like” or a “Thumb up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user accesses a website that contains such a plugin, his or her browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is sent directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by your browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plug-in and therefore informs the user according to his knowledge:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or by submitting a comment, the relevant information is sent directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook can find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only one anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect information about him or her about this offer and associate it with his or her Facebook membership data, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and contradictions regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
Revocation, changes, corrections and updates
The user has the right to request free information on the personal data stored about him/her. In addition, the user has the right to correct incorrect data, block and delete his/her personal data, as long as there is no legal obligation to retain them.
