5. Plugins and tools
YouTube with extended data protection
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The website is operated by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. We use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not save any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily preclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. For example, regardless of whether you’re watching a video, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network. As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can receive information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them. If necessary, further data processing processes can be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.

Google Maps (with consent)
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

A direct connection to the Google servers will only be established if you activate Google Maps yourself (consent according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). This prevents your data from being transferred to Google the first time you enter the page. After activation, Google Maps will save your IP address. This is then usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transfer after activating Google Maps.
