Data Transfers to Third Parties

Use of YouTube videos
We use embedded YouTube videos in the extended data protection mode. YouTube is a service from Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. YouTube makes this extended data protection mode available and thus ensures that YouTube saves no cookies with personal data on your computer. When calling up the website and to embed the video, the IP address is transferred. This address cannot be correlated provided you have not logged in to YouTube or another Google service prior to calling up the site or if are permanently logged in. As soon as you start playing an embedded video by clicking Start, the extended data protection mode means that YouTube only saves cookies on your computer that contain no personally identifiable data. These cookies can be prevented with the relevant browser settings and extensions (source: YouTube “Activate the extended data protection mode for embedded videos”).

In order to display fonts in a unified manner, this website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google. Upon accessing a page, your browser will load the required Web Fonts into your browser cache in order to correctly display texts and fonts. If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font of your computer is used.
