It is free, if:

Is it possible to remove the text "guteurl.de" in the widget below the image next to "read full article her"?
Yes, it is possible for customers, who have th €7 or €19 subscription.
This must be requested per Email, then I can configure it.
I do not see the GuteUrl button when creating a new post anymore.
It works fine, but it seems to have disappeared.
Where is the button?
There could be two reasons:
The new Wordpress has exchanged the editor.
I haven't had the time to write a component for this new editor named "Gutenberg".
But I have two solutions for you:
Use the previous text editor.
Just search for the plugin "Classic Editor", install and active it.
Alternative solution: Keep using the new Gutenberg editor
and select "Edit as HTML".
Then you write
at the place, where you want the preview box to be.
In case the "Classic Editor" is active, perhaps the user clicked on the "Text" - Tab. In that case the "URL Box" item disappears.
If he clicks on "visual", then the button should appear again.
Do I need a "Private Policy" chapter / "Cookie" hint on my homepage?
if you link to a third party within the "GuteURL Preview Box" e.g. to Facebook or Twitter,
then the third party (e.g. Facebook/Twitter) will deliver the image and html snippets for
your website. They could set Cookies too, log your visitors and can track everything on your page.
Be aware of this and add this information to your "Private Policy" page.
