Plug-ins from YouTube, YouTube-Videos and Channels

On our websites we use plug-ins from – represented by Google Inc. – which are operated by YouTube, LLC, Cherry Ave., USA (hereinafter referred as “YouTube”). Plug-ins can be recognized by the YouTube Logo (white “Play” Symbol on a red background or “YouTube” lettering in white with “Tube” on a red background). When you open websites with such a plug-in on our website, a connection to the YouTube server will be established and the plug-in will be shown through the website on your browser.

The YouTube server will automatically receive information which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube or Google at the same time, YouTube will allocate this information to your personal YouTube accounts. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking on the start button of a video or making a comment), this information is also assigned to your e.g. personal YouTube account. You can only prevent this from happening by logging out before using the plug-in. Consequently, we have no influence on the extent of the collected data by YouTube with the help of this plug-in and we therefore inform you according to our information status. More information on the exaltation and usage of the date through the platforms and plug-ins by YouTube you may find here

Many of our websites contain so called embeddings of videos on YouTube or videos from our YouTube channel. Furthermore, these embeddings only enable a connection to YouTube. YouTube is a trademark from Google Inc. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the ongoing processing and use of the data by YouTube as well as your rights and setting options related to this to protect your private sphere are shown in the YouTube data protection information (

Plug-ins from Facebook, corporate profiles

On our websites plug-ins of the social network, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, are applied. Additionally, we have set up different Facebook profiles for our company. The plug-ins are identified on our website by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, a “thumbs-up” sign or a “like” button). Here you can find a selection of all the Facebook plug-ins.

When you visit our website the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Through plug-in integration, Facebook receives information that you have accessed the corresponding page from our website. If you interact with the plugin, by using the “Like-it-Button”, for example, while you are logged on to your Facebook account, you may link our content to your personal Facebook profile. Therefore, Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook account. Consequently, we would like to point out that we – as the provider of the website – have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and their use by Facebook. For further information please refer to the data protection declaration of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to allocate the collected data via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our website.
