The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR).

By visiting the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be mapped directly to your account

Google stores your data as user profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or customizing the design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for unlogged users) for the provision of demand-oriented advertising and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this.

5. Embedded YouTube Videos

Some of our webpages contain embedded YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereafter “YouTube“). Your visit of a page with the YouTube plugin sets up a connection to the YouTube servers whereby YouTube is being told which pages you are looking at. When you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube is able to allocate your surf conduct to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account prior thereto.

When a YouTube video is started, the advertiser uses cookies to collect information on user conduct.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube can be found in the data protection statements of the advertiser; there, you will also find information on your protection-related rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy.

Calling up YouTube automatically triggers a link to Google.

Users who have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad Program need not expect any such cookies when watching YouTube videos.
