Integration of YouTube-Videos

We have integrated YouTube videos into our online service, which are stored at and are accessible directly from our website. All videos are integrated into the “advanced data protection mode”, meaning if you do not play a video, no personal data about you will be transmitted to YouTube. Only if you play videos, the data mentioned in paragraph 2 will be transmitted. In addition YouTube receives the information that you visited the correlating subpage on our website. We have no control over this data transmission. This happens whether this third-party supplier offers a user account into which you are logged in, or if no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, the data will be assigned to your account. If you do not want an association between your profile and YouTube you should log out before pressing the play button.

YouTube stores this data in user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of their website. This analysis happens especially (even for users not logged in) to provide demand-actuated advertising and to inform other users on social media about your activities on our website. You have the right to object the creation of a user profile, which you have to address directly to YouTube.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data is section 6 paragraph 1 littera f) GDPR. By the means of plug-ins we give you the option to interact with social media and other users, so that we can improve our service and make it more interesting for you.
