a) YouTube with expanded data protection
Our website uses plug-ins from YouTube. The operator of these pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

YouTube may also save cookies on your device after you start a video. YouTube can use these cookies to acquire information on visitors to our website. This information is leveraged to collect video statistics, improve overall usability and prevent fraud among other reasons. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
Gegebenenfalls können nach dem Start eines YouTube-Videos weitere Datenverarbeitungsvorgänge ausgelöst werden, auf die wir keinen Einfluss haben.
