Integration of third-party services and contents

toggle accordeon

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e., our interest in the analysis, optimization, and economical operation of our online offerings in accordance with Article 6 section 1(f) of the GDPR), we use contents and services provided by third parties, integrating such contents and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to as "contents"), into our website. Such integration of contents always necessitates disclosure of the user’s IP address to the third-party providers, who would not be able to transmit the contents to the user's web browser without the IP address, which therefore is required for the display of such contents. We make every effort to use only such contents whose providers use IP addresses solely for the delivery of the contents. Moreover, third-party providers may use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as web beacons) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags may be used to evaluate information such as the user traffic on the pages of this website. Pseudonymous information including, but not limited to, technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time and duration of visit, and other information on the usage of our online offerings may furthermore be stored in cookies on the user's device and may be correlated with similar information from other sources.

For the integration and display of video contents, this website uses plugins provided by YouTube. The video portal's operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When the user accesses a page with an integrated YouTube plugin, their device connects to YouTube's servers, allowing YouTube to learn which of our pages they have accessed. YouTube can directly associate your visit to pages on our website to your personal profile if you are logged in to your YouTube account. You may prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting our site. We use YouTube's services in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offerings. This is a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 section 1(f) of the GDPR. For details on the use of users' data, please see YouTube's privacy policy.
