Our website uses plugins from the Google-operated YouTube site. The website is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. If you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers will be established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Further information on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube's privacy policy at:

The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only starts storing user information when the video/s is/are played back. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider “YouTube” uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from “YouTube”, these serve, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behavior. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want your YouTube profile to be assigned, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalized advertising, market research and / or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube to exercise them.
Regardless of whether the embedded videos are played back, a connection to the Google “DoubleClick” network is established each time this website is accessed, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.
Google is certified for the US-European data protection convention “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
