We, Reederei Riedel GmbH, Nalepastraße 10-16, 12459 Berlin, take our data protection very seriously and strictly follow the rules of data protection laws. Personal data will only be published on our website under conditions of technical necessity. Under no circumstance will personal data be sold, or distributed to a third party.
The following disclosure will provide you with an overview of how we handle our data protection, and of which types of data are used for what purpose.
The legal bases of data protection can be found in the German Data Protection Act (GDPA) and the German Telemedia Act (GTA).
Data processing on this website
Reederei Riedel GmbH gathers information sent to us through your browser, in our Server Log Files. These consist of the following:
• Browser type/ version
• Operating system used by the user
• Referrer URL (the website visited beforehand)
• Host name of the accessing computer (IP Address)
• Date and time of the server request
• Name of the accessed website.
• Transferred data amount
• Notification of successful access of website.
The provided information is not assignable to a distinct person. A unification of data with other data sources will not occur. The protocol data will only be used for the industry’s statistical evaluation, security, and optimization of marketing and will be deleted afterwards. However, the provider reserves the right to review the protocol, given there is a concrete reason for suspicion of right violations.
Handling personal data
Personal data is data, which distinguishes a distinct user, so information which can be traced back to a specific person. This information includes their name, email address, or telephone number. However, data about one’s preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites they have visited count as personal data.
Personal data will only be examined, utilized and distributed by Reederei Riedel GmbH, if this is legally permitted or if the user expresses consent.
While establishing contact with Reederei Riedel GmbH (via telephone, contact form, or email), that user’s information will be saved in order to process their request, and in case follow-up questions should arise.
Comments and contributions to SpreeDaily and similar social media channels
If users post comments on SpreeDaily’s website, their IP address will be saved. This ensure the provider’s safety, in case a user were to post comments or contributions of unlawful nature (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In that case, Reederei Riedel GmbH could face consequences, and is therefore interested in the user’s information. Integration of services and third party contents It could happen, that within our online offer, third party contents are to be found (for instance YouTube videos, Google-maps images, RSS-feeds or images from other websites). This always means that providers of such content (later referred to as “third-providers”) are aware of the users’ IP Addresses. This is because without their IP addresses, these providers could not send those contents to the corresponding users. Thus, the IP address is necessary for the presentation of such content. We are making an effort to only use contents, whose providers utilize the IP addresses solely for the purpose of displaying said contents. However, we do not possess any influence over whether or not the third-providers utilize the IP addresses for other purposes (for statistical evaluation for instance). As far as we are made aware of such circumstances, we will be sure to inform the users.
Utilization of Facebook Social Plugins
This offer utilizes Social Plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white „f“ on blue tile or a “thumbs up”- logo) or are designated with a “Facebook Social Plugin” addition. The list and view of the Facebook social plugins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If a user accesses a website of this offer, which contains such a plugin, their browser creates a direct connection to Facebook’s server. The content of the plugin is directly transferred to their browser and integrated into the website. Therefore, the provider has no influence over the range of contents, which Facebook applies through their plugins. The provider informs the user of their own status of current knowledge:
Through the integration of the plugins, Facebook receives information about a user having accessed the corresponding website. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can allocate their visit of the website to their Facebook account. If users interact with plugins, the Like-button or posting comments for example, their information will be transferred from their browser directly to the Facebook servers and stored there. Even if a user is not a member of Facebook, the possibility remains that their IP address be obtained and saved. According to Facebook in Germany, only anonymous IP addresses are saved.
Purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data, as well as the corresponding legal rights and settings pertaining to privacy can be found in their data

The contents of the Twitter button are provided by Twitter to the user’s browser directly. Therefore, the provider possesses no influence over the scope of the data, which Twitter gathers from users through their plugins.
