5.5.1 YouTube and Double-Click
To view the videos on our website, we use an offer from YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Therefore, when opening a video sequence, the website of Youtube is called. The use of Youtube takes place in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The videos are all embedded in the "advanced privacy mode", which means that if you do not play the videos, you will not transfer any data about you as a user to YouTube. Only when you play the videos, the following data will be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer.
By opening the video sequence YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This happens regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account that you are logged in to, or if there is no user account. When you're logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want to associate with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before opening the video sequence. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and / or customization of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide appropriate advertising and to inform other users of the social network about their activities on our website.
When you play the YouTube videos included on our site, Google also uses its DoubleClick service to show you ads that are relevant to you. We have no control over the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purpose of the processing or the retention periods. Below, we'll let you know how DoubleClick's data processing works to our current knowledge.
A Google DoubleClick cookie (see also the Google Analytics section above) will associate your browser with a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to check which ads have appeared in your browser and which ads have been viewed. When calling up a YouTube video, so-called Google Dynamic Remarketing can also be used. It's designed to serve ads promoting the products and services you've viewed on other websites. By incorporating such features (eg AdWords), Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website. If you're registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find and store your IP address.
