When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube's servers. The Youtube server will be informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you can allow YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

        Our website uses social plugins ("Plugins") from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").

The functions assigned to the links to the respective networks/services (Facebook, YouTube and Instagram), in particular the transmission of information and user data, are not activated simply by visiting our website, but instead only after clicking on the corresponding link. If these links are followed by clicking on them, the plugins from Facebook, YouTube and Instagram are activated and your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective network/service, i.e. Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. If you follow the links during your visit to our website and are logged into the respective network/service over your personal user account (Facebook, YouTube and Instagram), the information that you have visited our website will be forwarded to the respective operator (Facebook, YouTube and Instagram). The respective operator (Facebook, YouTube and Instagram) can assign the visit to the website to your account. This information is transmitted to the operators (Facebook, YouTube and Instagram) and if applicable stored there. In order to prevent this, you must log out of your account before clicking on the link. You can find additional information regarding the saved information under the following links:

        Even if you are not a member of the aforementioned social networks/services, there is a possibility that they will obtain your IP address over the social plugin and if applicable store it. Details regarding the purpose and scope of the processing, collection, and use of data on the part of Facebook, YouTube and Instagram and your rights and setting options with regard to this can be found under the following data protection statements:
