8.1 Use of videos (YouTube)
This website contains at least one plugin from YouTube, belonging to Google Inc., based in San Bruno/California, USA.
We use the YouTube function No-Cookies, i.e. we have activated Extended Data Protection, videos are not accessed via youtube.com, but via youtube-nocookie.com.
YouTube itself provides this and thus ensures that YouTube does not initially save any cookies on your device. However, when the pages in question are called up, the IP address and the other data mentioned in point 6 are transmitted and thus, in particular, information is provided as to which of our Internet pages you have visited. However, this information cannot be assigned to you if you are permanently logged into YouTube or another Google service when you access the page.
As soon as you start the playback of an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only saves cookies on your device through the extended data protection mode, which do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.
According to information from Youtube, these are used, among other things, to record video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behaviour.
Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established each time this website is called up, which can trigger further data processing procedures without our influence.
