Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the plug-ins in question is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube servers. This tells YouTube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have disabled Google Ad programme cookies, no cookies of this kind will be installed when you watch YouTube videos. 

However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
Further information on data protection at YouTube can be found in the provider's privacy policy at
