Use of videos (YouTube)

This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider "YouTube". The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only triggers the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider "Youtube" uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from "Youtube", these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behavior. Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established each time this website is called up, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

Further information on data protection at "YouTube" can be found in the provider's privacy statement at:
