The plug-in we use from Google is based on a 2-click system. When you open a website, only a placeholder is loaded for YouTube videos and no actual connection is made automatically to YouTube itself. This connection is only initiated when you click on the appropriate button to view the video. In order to enable you to view the video, the website uses a plug-in from the Google-owned service YouTube. The operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you are also logged into your YouTube account while visiting our website, whenever you play a video you also allow YouTube to associate your surfing behaviors with your personal profile. However, you can prevent this from happening by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
When you view
the video, a connection is made to the servers of YouTube. This
simultaneously informs the YouTube server which of our pages you are visiting
and have already visited.
We integrate the maps of the work “OpenStreetMap” https://www.openstreetmap.org, which are offered on the basis of the Open Data Commons Open Database license (ODbL) by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF). Data protection declaration of the OSMF.
As far as we know, the data of the users are used by OpenStreetMap exclusively for the purpose of displaying the map functions and temporarily storing the selected settings. This data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually carried out as part of the settings of their mobile devices).
The social media buttons provided on our website for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are “share” buttons or hyperlinks to the respective social media channel. They do not create an automatic connection to the various platforms, which distinguishes them from “like” buttons, which are not used on this website.
