Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as the IP address, browser used, operating system via your computer and your connection to the Internet.

 

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.

 

Under no circumstances will this data collected by us be passed on to third parties or associated with personal data without your consent.

Disabling cookies

 

Whether cookies can be stored and retrieved can be determined by the settings in your browser. For example, you may disable the storage of cookies altogether, restrict it to certain websites, or configure your browser to automatically notify you when a cookie is about to be stored and ask for your confirmation.

On our website we use videos from YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company of Google Inc, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

 

When you visit a website with YouTube content, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the content is displayed on the website by notifying your browser. This transmits the pages of our website that you have visited to the YouTube server.

 

If you use our website in languages other than German or English, videos from other services may also be included. In the Chinese language area we use videos from the company Youku. We strive to achieve the same level of data protection as for our German and English language offerings. We would be happy to provide you with further information on the collection and use of data in specific language versions upon request.

As a result of IP anonymisation enabled on this site, Google will truncate your IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
