Usage and application of YouTube

This website integrates YouTube components. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows users to freely watch video clips from other users for free viewing, rating and commenting.

Each time you visit a page on our website that incorporates a YouTube component (YouTube video), your internet browser will automatically cause the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are aware of which specific subpage of our site you are visiting.

If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes by calling a sub-page containing a YouTube video, which specific subpage of our website you have visited. This information will be collected by YouTube and Google and associated with the concerned person's YouTube account.

YouTube and Google will always receive information through the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged in to YouTube at the time of accessing our website.
