    YouTube Videos

    We use the YouTube video platform on our websites, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. We have integrated YouTube videos into our websites, which are stored on www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our websites. They are embedded in "enhanced privacy mode", which means that no information about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos.
    As soon as you start an embedded video on one of our websites, the embedded YouTube player connects to YouTube so that the video file can be transferred and played. This also transfers data to YouTube as the responsible party. We are not responsible for the processing of this data by YouTube and have no influence on this data transfer.

    YouTube is used in the interest of a comfortable and easy use of our website. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

    Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube can be found in Google's privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy and the YouTube terms of use at https://www.youtube.com/t/terms.
    Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
