  4. Cookies

    To make the use of our website attractive and facilitate the use of certain functions, we use so-called Cookies on various pages. These are small text files which are stored on your end-device.

  5. Use of videos (e.g. Youtube, Vimeo)

    This website uses the Youtube-embedding function for the display and replay of videos from the provider “Youtube”. Hereby the extended data protection mode is used which according to the information from the provider only initiates any storage of user information after the video begins playing. Once the replay of an embedded Youtube-video is started, the provider uses “Youtube” Cookies in order to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from “Youtube” these serve among other things to record statistics about videos, improve user-friendliness and prevent abuses. Regardless of whether an embedded video is played or not, a connection with the Google-network “DoubleClick” is established evert time this website is called up, which can trigger data processing procedures beyond our influence.
