We have integrated components from YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate, and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why entire movies and TV shows, music videos as well as trailers or videos produced by users themselves may be accessed via the Internet portal. The purpose of the integration is our legitimate interest in being able to present videos to you on our website (Art. 6(1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation).
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”). YouTube is a subsidiary of Google.
Each time you access a single page on which a YouTube component (YouTube player) is integrated, the web browser on your computer is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. The YouTube videos on this website are embedded in "enhanced privacy mode." Accessing the pages leads to a connection with YouTube and the DoubleClick network. Clicking on the video may trigger additional data processing procedures over which we no longer have control. Additional information on YouTube is available at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/ . As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google receive information about the specific subpage of our website that you are accessing.
By accessing a subpage that contains a YouTube video, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website you are visiting when you are logged in to YouTube at the same time. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your respective YouTube account.
Via the YouTube component, YouTube and Google obtain information that you have visited our website whenever you are logged in to YouTube at the same time as you visit our website, regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, you may prevent this transmission by logging out of your YouTube account prior to visiting our website.
You may also prevent the establishing of an automatic connection at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the web browser that you are using; you will then still be able to use our site, although without videos.
Recipients of the data are the web administrator, the hosting service provider that we use, as well as external programmers, who each work on our behalf. Personal data from the cookies will not be transmitted to other recipients.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of your web browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. In addition, cookies that have already been set may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs. This feature is available in all common web browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in your web browser, however, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.
We intend to erase the aforementioned data after the end of the respective browser session.
A transfer to third countries outside the European Economic Area is not intended.
