- Embedding of YouTube videos
(1) We have embedded YouTube videos on our website, which are saved on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. [These are all embedded in “enhanced data protection mode”, meaning that no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos is the data specified in paragraph 2 transmitted. We have no influence over this transmission of data.]
(2) By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. The data specified under Section 3 of this policy is also transmitted. This occurs irrespective of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in to, or not. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want data to be assigned to your profile with YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as a usage profile and uses it for advertising and market research purposes and/or for designing its website in line with demand. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (including for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activity on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. You must address YouTube to exercise this right.
