VI. Use and deployment of YouTube on our website
Elements of YouTube are embedded in this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, music videos, trailers or videos produced by users themselves can be called up through the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Whenever one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and in which a YouTube element (YouTube video) has been embedded, is accessed, the Internet browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube element to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube element from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. In the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is being visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting by calling up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube element that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this happens irrespective of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the data subject, he can prevent the transmission by logging out of his YouTube account before visiting our website.
VII. Use and deployment of Facebook
Elements of Facebook are embedded in this website. Facebook is a social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that standardly enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and network through friendship requests in particular.

Whenever one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook element (Facebook plug-in) has been embedded, is accessed, the Internet browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook element to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook element of Facebook. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. In the context of this technical process, Facebook is informed about which specific subpage of our website is being visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognises which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting with every visit to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook element and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks one of the Facebook buttons embedded in our website, for example the “Like” button, or makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Facebook receives information through the Facebook element that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens irrespective of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook element or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of his Facebook account before calling up our website.
The data policy published by Facebook which can be found at https://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject.
