Google Maps

We integrate “Google Maps” services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA into our website. The data processed there may specifically include IP addresses and location data of the users, however, these are not collected without their consent (as a general rule, within the scope of settings on their mobile devices). The data may be processed in the USA. You can find the data protection and the opt-out opportunity here.

YouTube videos

We have integrated YouTube videos into our online service, which are stored on YouTube and are directly playable from our website. These are all integrated into the “extended data protection mode”, i.e. that no data about you as the user are transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. The data referred to in Section 2 may only be transferred once you play the videos. We have no influence over this data transfer.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-site on our website. Furthermore, the aforementioned data are sent. This occurs, irrespective of whether YouTube provides a user account, through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data are allocated directly to your account. If you do not want the allocation to your profile with YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising purposes, market research and/or needs-based design of its websites. Such an evaluation particularly occurs (even for users who are not logged in) for the provision of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to a right to object to the formation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube, in order to exercise it.

You can obtain additional information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by YouTube in the privacy policy.
