Google is committed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
We have included YouTube videos in our online offering, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played direct from our website. YouTube is another Google service. YouTube videos are all embedded in the "extended privacy mode", which means that no user data is transmitted to YouTube if users do not play the videos. The following data will only be transferred if the user plays a video, and we have no influence over this data transfer.
When you visit the website, YouTube receives information when it plays a video that the user has accessed the corresponding subpage of our online presence. Additional information about the use of this online offer (including the user's IP address) will also be sent to and stored by a YouTube server in the United States. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which the user logged in or if no user account exists. If the user is logged into YouTube, their data will be directly linked with their account. If a user does not want to be assigned to their profile on YouTube, they must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores data as usage profiles and uses it for advertising, market research purposes, and/or to tailor its website offer. This evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about the activities of the user on our online offer. The user reserves the right to object to the creation of such user profiles and must apply to YouTube to exercise such rights.
Further information on the purpose and extent of the data collection and the processing of such by YouTube is contained in the Google data protection declaration, along with further information on rights and settings for the protection of your private sphere: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.
