B. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right:

to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Article 15 GDPR);

The legal basis for this storage is Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR.

The data will be deleted within no more than thirty days, unless continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from deletion until the investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.

On our website we use the Internet video portal YouTube. The operating company of YouTube is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, United States (hereinafter referred to as "YouTube"). The YouTube LLC is a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter referred to as "Google").

We use YouTube in its "advanced privacy mode" to show you videos. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website.

The legal basis is Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR.

According to YouTube, the "advanced privacy mode" means that the data specified below will only be transmitted to a YouTube server if you actually start a video.

Without this advanced mode, a connection to a YouTube server will be established as soon as you access any of our web pages on which a YouTube video is embedded. This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website within your browser. YouTube will record and process at a minimum your IP address, the date and time the video was displayed, as well as the website you visited. In addition, a connection to the DoubleClick advertising network of Google can be established.

If you are logged in to YouTube when you access our site, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. To prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our site or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube account.

For the purpose of functionality and analysis of usage behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your device via your browser. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. In addition, you can delete already set cookies at any time via your browser or other software programs.

If you prevent or restrict the installation of these cookies, not all functions of YouTube may be fully usable.
