4. third par­ty content 

We have inte­gra­ted You­Tube vide­os into our online offer, which are stored on http://​www​.You​Tube​.com and can be play­ed direct­ly from our web­site. The vide­os are all inte­gra­ted in “exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user is trans­mit­ted to You­Tube if you do not play the vide­os. Only when you play the vide­os will the data men­tio­ned in the next para­graph be trans­fer­red. We have no influence on this data trans­mis­si­on. By visi­ting the web­site, You­Tube (You­Tube LLC, 901 Cher­ry Ave., San Bru­no, CA 94066, USA) recei­ves the infor­ma­ti­on that you have acces­sed the cor­re­spon­ding sub-page of our web­site. In addi­ti­on, the data men­tio­ned under II. of this decla­ra­ti­on is trans­mit­ted. This occurs regard­less of whe­ther You­Tube pro­vi­des a user account via which you are log­ged in or whe­ther no user account exists. If you are log­ged in to Goog­le, your data will be direct­ly assi­gned to your account. If you do not want your data to be asso­cia­ted with your You­Tube pro­fi­le, you must log out befo­re acti­vat­ing the but­ton. You­Tube stores your data as usa­ge pro­files and uses them for the pur­po­ses of adver­ti­sing, mar­ket rese­arch and/​​or desig­ning its web­site in line with requi­re­ments. Such an eva­lua­ti­on is car­ri­ed out in par­ti­cu­lar (even for users who are not log­ged in) to pro­vi­de needs-based adver­ti­sing and to inform other users of the social net­work about your acti­vi­ties on our web­site. You have the right to object to the crea­ti­on of the­se user pro­files, and you must cont­act You­Tube to exer­cise this right. This pro­ces­sing is based on Art. 6 (1) sen­tence 1 lit. f DSGVO. By embed­ding such vide­os, we pur­sue our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in enhan­cing your user expe­ri­ence and opti­mi­sing our ser­vices.

We con­trac­tual­ly obli­ge the­se con­trac­tors in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.

5. trans­fer of per­so­nal data to third countries 

Within the scope set out abo­ve, we may trans­fer your per­so­nal data to other count­ries (inclu­ding count­ries out­side the EU) whe­re data pro­tec­tion stan­dards may dif­fer from tho­se in your coun­try of resi­dence. Plea­se note that data pro­ces­sed in other count­ries may be sub­ject to for­eign laws and may be acces­si­ble to local govern­ments, courts, law enforce­ment and regu­la­to­ry aut­ho­ri­ties. Howe­ver, when trans­fer­ring your per­so­nal data to such count­ries, we will take appro­pria­te mea­su­res to ade­qua­te­ly secu­re your data. When trans­fer­ring per­so­nal data to Event­bri­te in the US, the trans­fer is pro­tec­ted by an ade­quacy decis­i­on of the Euro­pean Com­mis­si­on in con­nec­tion with the EU-US Pri­va­cy Shield.

6 Security 

We have appro­pria­te, sta­­te-of-the-art secu­ri­ty mea­su­res in place to pro­tect your infor­ma­ti­on from loss, misu­se and altera­ti­on. For exam­p­le, our secu­ri­ty poli­ci­es and pri­va­cy state­ments are regu­lar­ly review­ed and impro­ved as neces­sa­ry. In addi­ti­on, only aut­ho­ri­sed employees have access to per­so­nal data. Alt­hough we can­not gua­ran­tee or war­rant that loss, misu­se or altera­ti­on of data will never occur, we do ever­y­thing in our power to pre­vent it. Plea­se remem­ber that data trans­mis­si­on over the Inter­net is never com­ple­te­ly secu­re.
