We have integrated YouTube videos in our website which are saved at www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. The videos are only activated if you specifically request this. These videos are also integrated in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user is sent to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play a video is the data transferred as specified in the next clause. We do not have any influence on this data transfer.

When you play the video, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the relevant subpage of our website. In addition, data is collected which your browser sends to YouTube. This includes IP address, date and time of the request, amount of data transferred, operating system and the user interface, language and version of the browser software.

This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you are logged in or no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data is attributed directly to your account. If you do not want the data to be attributed to your YouTube profile, you have to log out before activating the button. YouTube saves your data as use profiles and uses it for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or the needs-oriented design of its website. Such analysis (also in the case of users who are not logged in) serves the purpose of providing needs-oriented advertising and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. In order to exercise any rights such as a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, you must contact Google.
For further information on the purpose of data collection and its processing by YouTube, see the Google Privacy Policy. Here you will also find further information about your rights as well as settings options to protect your privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has agreed to accept the EU-US-Privacy-Shield.
