5) Use of social media: Videos
Use of YouTube videos This website uses the YouTube embedding 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, Ireland (“Google”) . The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, does not start storing user information until the video(s) play. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider “YouTube” uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from “YouTube”, these are used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive practices. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish assignment of your profile to YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation takes place in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on Google’s legitimate interests in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. When using YouTube, personal data coming to the US may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. Regardless of whether the embedded videos are played, a connection to the Google network is established each time this website is accessed, which can trigger further data processing operations outside our control. Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy As far as legally required, we have obtained your consent to the processing of your data described above in accordance with Art . 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.

6) Web analysis services
Google (Universal) Analytics This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google (Universal) Analytics uses so-called “Cookies” are text files that are stored on your device and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server and stored there; it can also be transferred to the Google LLC server in the US. This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”, which ensures anonymisation of the IP address by shortening it and excludes any direct personal reference. As a result of the extension, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google LLC Server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics is not merged with other Google data. By a special function, the so-called “demographic characteristics”, Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors on the basis of an evaluation of interest-related advertising and with the help of information from third parties. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of target group-optimised alignment of marketing strategies. However, data records recorded via the “demographic characteristics” cannot be assigned to any specific person. All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for reading out information on the terminal device used, will only be carried out if you have given us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR your express consent to this. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your website visit. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, by which Google is obliged to protect data of our website visitors and not to pass them on to third parties. For transmission of data from the EU to the USA, Google relies on so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA.
