8. Social media offers of our website

We have incorporated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on and can be viewed directly from our website. These are all part of the “extended data protection mode”, which means that no data is transmitted to YouTube about you as a user if you do not view the videos. Only when you view the videos is the data transmitted without our influence.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the respective subpage of our website.  In addition, the data stated in the section above “Gathering personal data when visiting our website” is transmitted.  This occurs independently of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in, or whether there is no user account.  When you are logged into Google, the data is attributed directly to your account.  If you do not wish the attribution to your profile on YouTube, you must log off before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website according to requirements.  Such an evaluation occurs in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to present customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.  You have the right to object to the compiling of these user profiles. To exert this you must contact YouTube.

Further information about the purpose and scope of data gathering and its processing by YouTube is available in the data protection declaration.
