7. Plugins and Tools

YouTube with extended data protection

My website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The operator of the website is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

I use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. This is how YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you are watching a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on my website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of my pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can receive information about visitors to my website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent attempted fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, further data processing operations can be triggered after starting a YouTube video, over which I have no influence.

The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of my online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR.
