Each visit to one of the pages of this website operated by the controller and incorporating a YouTube component (YouTube video) automatically causes the Internet browser on the subject's information technology system to be represented by the respective YouTube component to download an illustration of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will be aware of which specific bottom of our site the person is visiting.
If the person is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes by calling a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific bottom of our website the affected person visits. This information will be collected by YouTube and Google and associated with the affected person's YouTube account.
YouTube and Google will always receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of access to our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such information is not intended to be passed on to YouTube and Google by the person concerned, the latter may prevent the transmission from logging out of their YouTube account before calling our website.
