SSL/TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential information, for example orders or inquiries that you send to us as site owner, this site uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection by noting that the address in your browser’s address bar has changed from from “http://” to “https://”, and a padlock icon is visible to the left of the address.

6. Plugins and tools

YouTube with enhanced privacy

Our website uses YouTube plugins. YouTube, LLC is the owner and is located at 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

We use YouTube in enhanced-privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube records no data about visitors to this website before they watch any videos. Data forwarding to YouTube partners, on the other hand, is not entirely excluded by enhanced-privacy mode. For example, YouTube – regardless of whether you watch a video – establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This means that YouTube’s servers are informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged on to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to directly associate your browsing behavior with your profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your device once you have started watching a YouTube video. YouTube can use these cookies to collect information about visitors to our website. This information is used, for example, to record video statistics that help to improve user friendliness and prevent fraudulent activity. These cookies stay on your device until you delete them.

Other data-processing procedures, which we cannot influence, may be activated once you start watching a YouTube video.

We use YouTube to make our online offering more attractive. This represents a legitimate interest as defined in Article 6, Para. 1, Point f of the GDPR.
