This at least presupposes that the third-party providers of these content or service offers receive the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browsers. The IP address is therefore required to display this content.

3.5. Embedded YouTube videos

Our website uses plugins from the video platform YouTube to integrate videos and play them directly on our website. The video platform is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA ("YouTube"). YouTube is a joint venture with Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").

The integration of YouTube videos is carried out in the so-called "extended data protection mode", which according to the provider's information, the storage of user information only starts when the video(s) is/are played. However, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily exclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. For example, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network, regardless of whether you are watching a video.

When you activate embedded videos on our website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and a data transfer is started. We have no influence on the scope and content of the data that is transmitted to YouTube and possibly other YouTube partners by activating the plugin. Among other things, the YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. According to information provided by YouTube, this information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behaviour. To do this, YouTube uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. The cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. You can prevent YouTube from saving cookies by making the appropriate setting in the browser software (see above).

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to assign your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before activating the play button.

YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of point (f) Article 6(1) of the GDPR.
