When a YouTube video is started, the advertiser uses cookies to collect information on user conduct.

6. Social Plugins

Our webpages use social plugins of the advertisers quoted below. You can recognize these plugins by their distinctive logo.

Under certain circumstances, these plugins can transmit data which may also include personal data to the service providers who may subsequently make use of them. We prevent the unwitting and unintended collection and transmission of data to the service providers by a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding switch. Only this activation of the plugin triggers the logging on information and its transmission to the service provider. We ourselves do not collect any personal data by means of social plugins or their use.

We have no control over which data are logged by an activated plugin and how these are used by the advertiser. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the advertiser is built up and that as a minimum the IP address and device-specific information is logged and utilized. It is also possible that the service providers will attempt to store cookies on the accessing PC. To learn which actual data are logged and how they are used, please see the data protection statements of the respective service provider. Note: If you are simultaneously registered with Facebook, note that Facebook may identify you as visitor to a specific webpage.

7. Google AdWords

Our website employs Google conversion tracking. The service provider of Google AdWords is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. If you reach our website via an advert inserted by Google, Google Adwords places a cookie on your PC. The conversion tracking cookie is deposited when a user clicks on an advert inserted by Google.

If a user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie is not yet expired, we and Google are able to determine that the user has clicked on the advert and was subsequently re-routed to the said page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information obtained by the conversion cookie serves to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who have clicked on their ads and were re-routed to a webpage bearing a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which would permit identifying a user personally.

The legal basis for the integration of Google AdWords and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

With every visit of our website, personal data including your IP address are transferred to Google in the USA. These personal data are stored by Google. Through technical processes, Google may transmit collected data to third parties. Our Company receives no information from Google which would allow identifying the person concerned.

These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify a visitor.

Google processes your data in the USA and is committed to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

If you wish to opt out of tracking, you may refuse setting the cookie required for this purpose, e.g. by a setting of your browser which generally disables the automatic placement of cookies or you can adjust your browser in such a way that cookies from the ”googleleadservices.com“ domain are blocked.

Please note that you must not delete opt-out cookies as long as you want to prevent the recording of measuring data. If all cookies in your browser are deleted, the respective opt-out cookie must be placed once again.

The supply of your personal data is voluntary and occurs solely on the basis of your consent. However, if you wish to stop access, this may entail functional restrictions on the website.
