Videos from the YouTube video platform operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, are integrated into our website. YouTube is represented by Google.

The legal basis for this is the protection of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.

Google holds this certification (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
