5) Use of social media: Videos

Use of YouTube videos
This website uses the YouTube integration function to display and play back videos from the provider “YouTube”, which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Republic of Ireland (“Google”).

The expanded data protection mode is used in this connection, which according to disclosures from the provider only starts to store user information in the event of the playback of the video(s). If the playback of an integrated YouTube video starts, the provider “YouTube” places cookies that collect information about user behaviour. According to information from “YouTube”, these are used for purposes such as recording video statistics, improving user friendliness and preventing misuse. If you are logged on to Google, your data will be allocated directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want an allocation to be made to your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google will store your data (even for users who are not logged in) as a usage profile and will evaluate these. Such an evaluation will be carried out in particular as per Art. 6 (1) f GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interest of Google to insert personalised advertising, market research and/or needs-oriented design of its website. You can object to the formation of this user profile. You must direct your objection to YouTube. Within the scope of using YouTube, personal data may be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Regardless of any playbacks of integrated videos, every time this website is called up a connection will be made to the Google network, which may initiate further data processing procedures without our influence.

If personal data is transmitted to Google LLC., with its registered office in the USA, Google LLC. has certified the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level that applies in the EU. A current certificate can be viewed here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list

The full IP address will only be transmitted to a server of Google LLC. in the USA and shortened there in exceptions. In these exceptions, this processing is carried out as per Art. 6 (1) f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in statistical analysis of user behaviour for the purposes of optimisation and marketing. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities and to provide further services associated with website use and internet use to us.
