Embedded YouTube Videos
Nature and Purpose of Data Processing:
In some parts of our website, we embed YouTube videos. The respective plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter "YouTube"). When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to YouTube's servers. It tells YouTube which pages you visit. Should you be logged in to your YouTube account while visiting our website, YouTube may personally associate your browsing behavior with you. This can be prevented by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
Legal basis is your consent to the involvement of YouTube and the associated data transfer to Google (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
The access of YouTube automatically triggers a connection to Google.
Storage duration and revocation of consent:
Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to expect any such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage data in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser itself.
Third country transfer:
Google processes your data in the US and has submitted itself to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
The provision of your personal data is voluntary and solely occurs on the basis of your consent. Functional restrictions on the website may result should you not authorize access to personal data.
