3) Use of Youtube videos

This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and playback videos of the provider "Youtube". For this purpose the extended data protection mode is used which, according to the information supplied by the provider, does not start storing the user information until the video is played back. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started the provider "Youtube" uses cookies to gather information about the user's behaviour. According to information provided by "Youtubeā€¯ these serve, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user friendliness and prevent abusive practices. Regardless of the playback of the embedded videos, each time this site is accessed a link to the Google Network "DoubleClick" is recorded, which can trigger further data processing operations which we have no influence over.

For more information on "YouTube" privacy, see the provider's privacy policy at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

 

4) Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and Conversion Tracking as part of Google AdWords. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages of this site and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through the AdWords customers' websites. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers will see the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been redirected to a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can disagree with this usage by simply turning off the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your Internet browser under User Preferences. You are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics.
