We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned in the next paragraph be transferred. We have no influence on this data transmission. The legal basis for the display of the videos is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the integration only takes place after your consent.

In addition, the data mentioned under "Web server usage data" in this statement, such as IP address, are transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in line with requirements.

The information collected is stored on Google servers, also in the USA.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, thus making it impossible to relate them to a specific person.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, the data transfer takes place on the basis of standard contractual clauses, which can be viewed at https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks.
