IV. Embedded YouTube-Videos

We embed YouTube videos on our website. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can track your surfing behavior to you. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

If you have deactivated cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

When users leave comments on the site, in addition to this information, the time of their creation and the username and email address and IP previously selected by the website visitor are stored. This is for our security, as we can be prosecuted for illegal content on our website, even if it was created by users.

An anonymized string may be created from your email address (also called a hash) and given to the Gravatar service to verify that you are using it. The privacy policy of the Gravatar service can be found here: After your comment is approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible in the context of your comment.

For the comment function on our site, we use the wpDiscuz plugin.

This allows users to publish comments under different posts without having to wait for a new activation.

VI. Social Plugins

On our website we offer you the possibility to use so called “Social Media Buttons”. To protect your data, we use a solution called “Shariff”. Hereby the share buttons are implemented as static images, which contain a link to the corresponding social network site. If you click on such a button, you will be redirected to the respective social network site in the same way, as normal links would do as well. Only in that moment of time the provider of the social network site will get information about you, for example your IP address. If you do not click on such a share button, no data will be transmitted. Information about the collection and usage of your date on the social network sites can be found in the corresponding terms of use of the respective provider. More information about the plugin and the Shariff solution can be found here:
