Social media plug-ins
We use social plug-ins of the social network YouTube on our website on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO in order to make our offer better known. The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation is to be ensured by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place by way of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to our website as best as possible.
Our website also uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from YouTube, which is operated by YouTube LLC, with headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
The plugins are marked with a logo, for example.
When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to YouTube’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by YouTube directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, YouTube receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a YouTube profile or are not currently logged into YouTube.
This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a YouTube server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to YouTube, YouTube can directly assign your visit to our website to your YouTube account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “YouTube” button, this information is also transmitted directly to a YouTube server and stored there.
The information is also published on your YouTube account and displayed there to your contacts.
If you do not want YouTube to assign the data collected via our website directly to your YouTube account, you must log out of YouTube before visiting our website.

Such content includes, but is not limited to, cloud recordings, chat/instant messages, voicemails uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards, and other information sha
red while using the Service.Furthermore, the provider of the tool processes all technical data required to handle the online communication.
