Use of YouTube Videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function for display and playback of videos

To this end, the extended data protection mode is used to ensure, according to provider

started. When the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider sets "YouTube"
cookies in order to collect information about user behavior. According to indications from
YouTube, the use of those cookies is intended, among other things, to record video statistics, to
improve user-friendliness and to avoid improper actions. If you are logged in to Google, your
information will be directly associated with your account when you click on a video. If you do not
wish to be associated with your profile on 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 according to Art. 6 (1) point f
GDPR, on the basis of the legitimate interests of Google in the insertion of personalized
advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right
to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise
this right. When using YouTube, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google
LLC. in the USA.

Regardless of whether the embedded video is played back, a connection to the Google network
"double click" is established when visiting this website. This may trigger further data processing
beyond our control.

In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC. based in the United States,
Google LLC. is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which
guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. An up-to-date

The conversion tracking cookie is set on a user’s browser, if he clicks on an ad delivered
by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These
cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If
the user visits a certain page of this website and if the cookie has not yet expired, Google and
we will be able to recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Each
Google Ads customer gets a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be traced via the website of
Google Ads customers. The information collected by the conversion cookies is used to provide
aggregate conversion statistics to Google Ads customers who have opted-in for conversion
tracking. Customers are informed about the total number of users who clicked on the ad and
were forwarded to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not get any information
enabling them to identify users personally. If you do not want to participate in the tracking
program, you can refuse the use of this program by deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking
cookie via your Internet browser through the user settings. In this case, you will not be included
in the conversion tracking statistics. We use Google Ads on the basis of our legitimate interest in
targeted advertising in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR. When using Google Ads,
personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC. based in the United States,
Google LLC. is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield",
which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. An
up-to-date certificate can be viewed here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list..

cannot be assigned to the individual user and which documents the affiliate program of an
advertiser, the publisher, and the time of the user's action (click or view). AWIN also collects
information about the mobile device from which a transaction is executed, e.g. the operating
system and the calling browser. If the information also contains personal data, the described
processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate financial interest in the processing of
commission payments with AWIN pursuant to Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR.
If you do not wish cookies to be stored in your browser, you can do this by setting your
browser accordingly. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your respective browser under
tools/internet options, limit them to certain websites or set your browser so that it notifies you
as soon as a cookie is sent. Please note, however, that in this case you must expect a limited
display of online offers and limited user guidance. You can also delete cookies at any time. In
this case, the information stored in it is removed from your mobile device. For more information

processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR, on the basis of our
legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing
purposes.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile
reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and internet
use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not
merged with other Google data.
