Use of Youtube Components with Extended Data Protection Mode
On our website we use videos of YouTube LLC, a company of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Here we use the option "extended data protection mode" provided by YouTube. When you access a page that has an embedded video, it connects to the YouTube servers and displays the content on the website by notifying your browser. According to YouTube, in "extended privacy mode" only data is transmitted to the YouTube server, especially which of our websites you visited when you watch the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information will be associated with your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.
