Provision prescribed or necessary:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is not required by law or contract. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. In addition, individual services may not be available or may be restricted. For this reason an objection is excluded.

On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter “YouTube”). When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This will tell YouTube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube can be found in the provider’s data protection declarations, where you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy (https://policies.google.com/privacy). Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework

The legal basis for the integration of YouTube and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

Recipient:

Calling YouTube automatically triggers a connection to Google.

Storage period and withdrawal of consent:

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to reckon with any such cookies even when watching YouTube videos.

We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider by a 2-click solution. In order to activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only when the plugin is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data via the social plugins or their use.

We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how this data is used by the service provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services will be established and at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. It is also possible that the service provider will attempt to store cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. On the basis of the use of the website and the Internet, further associated services are then to be provided.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device.
