The plugins are indicated by a YouTube logo, for example in the form of a “YouTube camera” or a “Play” button. The integration of these plugins by us is done by means of the so-called two-click method to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.

Through this integrated plugin, 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 in to YouTube.

When you interact with the plugins, for example operate the “YouTube” button, this information is also transmitted directly to a YouTube server and stored there. Furthermore, the information is published on your YouTube account and shown to your contacts there. If you do not want YouTube to immediately link the data collected about our web appearance to your YouTube account, you must log out from YouTube before activating the plugins with YouTube.
