Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)
To show our content across various different browsers in a correct and graphically attractive fashion, we use script libraries and font libraries on our websites such as e.g. Google web fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transmitted into the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support or blocks access to the Google web fonts, the content will be displayed in a standard font.
Accessing script or font libraries will automatically trigger a connection to the library provider. Here, there is the theoretic possibility of the provider collecting data, although we do not know whether or for what purposes this will happen.
The data protection guidelines of the Google library provider can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites you will find embedded YouTube video. Provider of the respective plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. Every time you visit a website with the YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is effected. Thus, YouTube will learn what sites you are visiting. When you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube is able to allocate your surfing habits to your very person. You can prevent this from happening by logging off your YouTube account first.
Those who deactivated the storage of cookies for the program Google Ad, should not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also includes non-personal user information in other cookies. To prevent this, you have to block the storage of cookies in your browser.
