This privacy statement explains to users the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible Provider RDL Group, firstname.lastname@example.org, on this website (hereinafter the "Offer").
The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / Server Log files
The Provider (or his internet/web space provider) collects data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes:
Name of the requested Web page, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type plus version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The Provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and the optimization of the offer. The Provider reserves the right, however, at a later point in time to check the log data if due to concrete indications there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use
Handling Personal Data
Personal information is information that will help identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, the e-mail address or phone number. Data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone is also included in personal data.
Personal data will only be collected, used and passed on by the Provider if permitted by law or if the user consents to the data collection.
When you contact the Provider (for example, via the contact form or e-mail), your user information will be saved for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that related questions arise.
Comments and Contributions
When users leave comments or other contributions on the blog, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the Provider, in case someone writes illegal content in the comments and contributions (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In such cases, the Provider can be held liable for the comment or post and therefore has an interest in the identity of the author.
In our newsletter we inform you about our company and our products and special offers.
If you want to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address or that its owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. This data is used only to send the newsletter and will not be disclosed to third parties.
By registering for the newsletter, we save your IP address and date of registration. This storage is used solely as evidence in case a third party misuses an e-mail address and logs in without the knowledge of the person entitled to receive the newsletter.
Your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by notice provided to the above contact details
Integration of services and content of third parties
Within this online offer it is possible that links from other websites and third-party content, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics are included or integrated into the content. It is assumed that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party provider") can see the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, said content could not be sent to the browser of that user. The IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of that content. We strive to use only content of respective third-party providers which use the IP address solely for the delivery of content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider saves the IP address for statistical purposes. Insofar as is known to us, we inform the users about such use.

Use of Facebook Social Plug-ins
This offer uses social plug-ins ("Plug-ins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plug-ins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue tile, and the terms "Like", " Gefällt mir " or a "thumbs up" sign) or are identified by the words "Facebook Social Plug-in". The list and the appearance of Facebook social plug-ins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user visits a web page of this website/offer which contains such a plug-in, the user’s browser will create a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The contents of the Facebook plug-in are transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The Provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects via the plug-in and informs the user according to his knowledge.
By integrating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to the user’s Facebook account. When users interact with the plug-ins, for example by leaving a comment or pressing the Like Button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook learns its IP address and stores it. According to Facebook only an anonymous IP address will be stored in Germany.
For information regarding the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, and the respective rights and settings options for protecting the privacy of the user, the user can refer to the privacy policies of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and link this data to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log off Facebook before visiting the website.
+1 Button from Google+
This offer uses the "+1" button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The plug-in/button is identifiable by the "+1" sign on a white or coloured background.
When a user visits a web page of this website which contains such a button, the user’s browser will create a direct connection to the servers of Google. The contents of the "+1" button are transmitted by Google directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The Provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Google collects via the button/plug-in. According to Google, no personal data is collected without clicking the button. Only from logged in members will such data, including the IP address, be collected and processed.
The user can inform himself about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your related rights and settings options for protecting your privacy by referring to Google's data privacy information about the "+1" button:
This offer uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are connected to terminology such as "Twitter" or "Follow", and can be identified by a stylised blue bird. Using the buttons, it is possible to share a contribution of content or a page of this offer via Twitter, or to follow the Provider on Twitter.
When a user visits a web page of this website which contains such a button, the user’s browser will create a direct connection to the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to your browser. The Provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data that Twitter gathers via the plug-in and informs the user according to his knowledge. According to our knowledge, the IP address of the user is only transmitted with the URL of the respective website for the sole purpose of displaying the buttons.
