Enquiries on data protection matters can be addressed to our data protection officer:

Making contact

When you make contact with the memorial via the website (for instance via contact form or e-mail) the personal details of the user are stored in order to process the request and in case there are subsequent enquiries.

Incorporation of services and content of third parties

It may be that third party content is incorporated within these web pages, such as videos by Vimeo, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) have access to the IP address of the users, since this is needed for presentation of some of this content. We try to only use content whose providers only use the relevant IP addresses to provide the content. However we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP addresses, e.g. for statistical purposes. 

Online presence in social media

We maintain an online presence on social networks and platforms in order to communicate with users who are active there and to be able to inform them there about our services. When you call up the relevant networks and platforms the terms and conditions and data protection regulations of the relevant operators apply.

Provided our privacy statement does not contain information to the contrary, we process users’ data if they communicate with us within the social networks and platforms, e.g. add comments on our online sites or send us messages.

Rescission, changes, corrections and updates

We only store personal data for as long as we are entitled to do so and the purpose of the processing is still valid. For the duration of the storage of personal data the relevant legal storage time limit applies. After expiry of the time limit the relevant data is routinely deleted if it is no longer needed for contractual fulfilment or contractual preparation.

The user has the right to receive information free of charge on the personal data which is stored about him or her. In addition the user has the right to correction of incorrect data, blockage and deletion of his or her personal data provided no statutory retention duty prevents this.
