The personal data provided in this context will be used by us exclusively for the purpose of providing this service within the scope of the consent you have given for this purpose (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). Volkswagen Immobilien GmbH uses the so-called double opt-in procedure to confirm your request and e-mail address.

In connection with the double opt-in procedure, we document the IP address, date and time of the web form submission as well as the IP address, date and time of the confirmation of the double opt-in e-mail.
