to improve user-friendliness and to avoid improper actions. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account when

(even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you
must contact YouTube to exercise this right. When using YouTube, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point a GDPR. Without this consent, Youtube-Videos will not be used during
