Legal basis for the processing is the necessity to perform pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. We will delete the data accruing in this connection after storage is no longer necessary or we restrict the processing if there are statutory retention obligations.

Embedding of YouTube videos
We have embedded YouTube videos in our website that are stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are embedded using the “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. The data mentioned in the next paragraph will not be transmitted until you play the videos. We do not have any influence on this data transfer.
When you visit the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with YouTube, you should log out before playing the video. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or for designing its website to meet your specific demands. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. YouTube videos cannot be displayed without the data transfer described above. It is therefore carried out with the purpose of making our online services more attractive by embedding videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you should log out before visiting our site. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its website.

We also use Google reCAPTCHA software provided by Google Ireland Limited on our website. ReCaptcha checks whether data entered on our websites is provided by a human being or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes your behavior as a website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically when you enter the site. For analysis purposes, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the site by the visitor or mouse ratings made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The purpose of the processing is to prevent the misuse of input masks by automated programs (bots).
