Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

Via these plugins, information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service operator and may be used by the operator.

Only when the plug-in is activated is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider triggered. We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or their use.

We have no influence on which data an activated plug-in collects and how it is used by the provider. It must currently be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services will be established and that at least the IP address and device-related information will be recorded and used. There is also the possibility that the service provider will try to save cookies on the computer used.

Through certification according to the EU-US data protection shield ("EU-US Privacy Shield")

This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your internet browser.

For the purpose of functionality and to analyze usage behavior, YouTube permanently saves cookies on your device via your internet browser.
