Scope of application

This data protection declaration informs users about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider [see imprint] on this website (hereinafter offer).

The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

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

Use of Facebook social plugins

This website uses social plugins (plugins) from 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 terms like, like or a thumbs up sign) or are marked with the addition Facebook Social Plugin. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user accesses a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, their browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to its level of knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the website. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out their IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them via this website and link it to their membership data stored on Facebook, they must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

In particular, individual tweets can be integrated into the website as additional content.

When a user accesses a web page of this website that contains such a web page element, their browser establishes a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The content of the website element is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Twitter collects with the help of the website elements and informs users according to its level of knowledge. According to this, only the user’s IP address and the URL of the respective website are transmitted when the button is accessed, but are not used for purposes other than displaying the website element.

Privacy policy for the Facebook pages Kitty & Mike Stone, Coyote – Author, Ice Cold Retribution – Erotic Dark Fantasy Book Series, Dark & Deadly – Dark Romance Book Series and The Dark Side of Romance

Status: 10/14/2019

The operators Kitty Stone and Mike Stone of the Facebook pages Kitty & Mike Stone, Eiskalte Vergeltung – Erotische Dark Fantasy Buchreihe, Dark & Deadly – Dark Romance Buchreihe and The Dark Side of Romance* and Mike Stone of the Facebook page Coyote – Autor use the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered here. We would like to point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).

When you visit our Facebook pages, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more information on this under the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. What information Facebook receives and how it is used is described by Facebook in general terms in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and the settings options for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy

You can find Facebook’s complete data policy here: https://de-defacebook.com/full_data_use_policy

Facebook does not conclusively and clearly state how it uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, and we are not aware of this.

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for German IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. as part of the login notification function); Facebook may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is stored on your device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons integrated into websites enable Facebook to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to tailor content or advertising to you.

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the stay logged in function, delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that can be used to identify you directly. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. If you access interactive functions on the page (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After logging in, you will once again be recognizable to Facebook as a specific user.

Information on how you can manage or delete existing information about you can be found on the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy#

As the provider of the information service, we also collect and process personal data via these fan pages in the following cases:
In the case of competitions, we require the contact details of participants for the purpose of distributing prizes, e.g. to be able to carry out a prize draw.
Depending on the type of prize, we require data for sending the prize. This may involve e-mail or postal addresses. This data will be passed on to the extent necessary, e.g. to a parcel service. Beyond this, the data is neither passed on to third parties nor stored outside our sphere of influence (Facebook and external user file). The data is only stored for the period required for processing (including any complaints).
Upon request, all personal data that does not have to be archived for legal reasons can be deleted. This does not include the complete chat history but only the personal data collected by me (e.g. address data).
This applies accordingly to free promotions that are called for via this fan page.

External links / affiliate links:
If we link to external sites, the IP address and possibly other personal data will be transmitted to the respective site operator via Facebook. By clicking on this link, you give your consent to this.
We participate in the partner program AmazonPartnerNet of Amazon EU S.a.r.l., 5 Rue Plaetis, L-2338 Luxembourg. In this context, advertisements are placed on this fan page as links that lead to offers on various Amazon websites. Amazon uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored on your end device so that the origin of orders generated via such partner links can be traced. In this way, Amazon can recognize, among other things, that the partner link used on this Facebook page has been clicked. This information is required for payment processing between us and Amazon. The above applies to chargeable orders.
Information on the use of data by Amazon can be found here (Amazon privacy policy): https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=footer_privacy?ie=UTF8&nodeId=3312401
