We take data protection seriously: As a matter of principle, we only process personal data if it is necessary for the provision of a service or offer or if you provide it voluntarily. In addition, we protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons with the help of technical and operational backups. We regularly review and update these precautions.

General information on data processing

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behavior. Information where we cannot (or only with a disproportionate effort can) establish a connection to your person, e.g. by anonymizing the information, is not personal data. We collect personal data as far as this is necessary for us to - to be able to make our digital offers available (__guarantee of functionality__) - to analyze what reach our website has and how we can optimize our products for customers (__product optimization__), - to conduct events, - to get in contact with the customers.
Personal data are processed by us __for the fulfilment of contractual obligations__ according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. This includes in particular: - guarantee of functional safety - the processing of orders such as subscriptions, purchases in our stores, booking of advertisements, etc. - the creation of a user account - the provision of services within the scope of the orders, such as redirection requests, renewed placement of advertisements, repeat orders, changes of address, complaints, etc. - to provide you with relevant information about your orders - for establishing contact with you, as far as a permanent business relationship with you or your employer exists or is intended (business contacts) In addition, we process your data __to safeguard our legitimate interests__ in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, - for the purpose of compiling statistics to improve products and services - for the purpose of preventing, investigating and reporting crimes, e.g. fraud, e.g. credit card misuse, identity theft, obtaining special conditions or rates - for the assertion of legal claims including collection and defense in legal disputes - for auditing purposes - for advertising, as long as you have not objected to the use of your data - for the purpose of compiling statistics to improve products and services. In individual cases, we form user groups for this purpose by processing order and usage data; however, these groups are immediately made anonymous and are not used to analyze or predict aspects relating to your personal preferences. We process your data __on the basis of your consent__ in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a) DSGVO for specific purposes, in particular - for the purpose of compiling statistics to improve products and services - for personalized use of the website and personalized offers as well as optimization of the web offer - to the newsletter dispatch with regular offers - to receive special information and offers from us and our partner companies - to market research - to the customer survey - to support website usage processes with reminder functions and live chats - for analytical purposes in order to optimize our offer for you. A given consent can be revoked at any time in the data protection settings. The revocation of a consent is only effective for the future and does not affect the legality of the data processed until the revocation. If cookies, device identifiers or other information are stored or retrieved on your terminal device for processing, the legal basis for this is the European Cookie or e-Privacy Directive in conjunction with the German Telemedia Act (§ 12 ff. TMG) or the Basic Data Protection Regulation (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO and Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO).

Data deletion and storage duration

We delete or make anonymous your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or used. However, we may have to continue to store your data until the expiry of the retention obligations and periods stipulated by law or supervisory authorities, which may result from the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code and the Money Laundering Act (generally 6 to 10 years). In addition, we may store your data until the expiry of the statutory limitation periods (i.e. as a rule 3 years; in individual cases, however, up to 30 years), insofar as this is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Afterwards, the corresponding data will be deleted.

Data security and security measures

We are committed to protecting your privacy and treating your personal data confidentially. In order to prevent the manipulation, loss or misuse of your data stored with us, we take extensive technical and organizational security precautions, which are regularly checked and adapted to technological progress. These measures ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of your data. This includes the use of recognized encryption methods (SSL or TLS) and pseudonymization. However, we would like to point out that due to the structure of the Internet, it is possible that the rules of data protection and the above-mentioned security measures may not be observed by other persons or institutions not within our area of responsibility. In particular, data disclosed in unencrypted form - e.g. when sent by e-mail - can be read by third parties. We have no technical influence on this.

Use of service providers

When processing your data in connection with our services and products, we use service providers or transfer this data to companies that support us, for example, in processing payment orders. These service providers process the data exclusively within the scope of our instructions and are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. All service providers have been carefully selected and are only granted access to your data to the extent and for the period of time required to provide the services or to the extent that you have consented to the processing and use of your data. Service providers in countries such as the USA or in other countries outside the EU or the countries of the European Economic Area are subject to a data protection regime which generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union. If your data is processed in a country outside the EU/EEA that does not have a recognized high level of data protection like the European Union, we will ensure that your personal data is adequately protected by means of contractual arrangements or other recognized instruments.

Online events

To offer our events online we use the following tools:

Zoom

We use the Zoom tool (Zoom Video Communications, Inc., 55 Almaden Blvd, Suite 600, San Jose, California, USA) to conduct conference calls, online meetings, video conferences, webinars or other events. If we want to record online events, we will inform you transparently in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed in the zoom app. If it is necessary for the purpose of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case. In the case of webinars, we can also process the questions asked by webinar participants for the purposes of recording and follow-up of webinars. When using Zoom, different types of data are processed. The extent of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an online event. The following personal data are subject to processing: - user data: First name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail, password (if SSO is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional) - Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information - for cloud recordings (optional): Mp4 of all video, audio and presentations, M4A of all audio recordings, text file of all in meeting chats, audio log file - IM Chat Logs - Telephony usage data (optional): call in number, call out number, country name, IP address, 911 address (registered service address), start and end time, host name, host e-mail, MAC address of the used device - Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display and, if necessary, log them in the "online meeting". In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the zoom applications - location data. In order to participate in an online event or to enter the "meeting room", you must at least provide information about your name. The data processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO. Your personal data, which is processed in connection with your participation in our online events, is generally not passed on to third parties, unless it is specifically intended to be passed on. The service provider Zoom necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data to the extent that this is provided for in our contract processing agreement with him. If you are registered as a user at Zoom, reports on online events (meeting meta data, data on telephone dial-in, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored at Zoom for up to one month. Furthermore Zoom reserves the right to pass on your data to third parties with your consent. Since Zoom is based in the USA, we have concluded a contract with Zoom that meets the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO. An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed on the one hand by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contract clauses. As additional protective measures, we have also configured our Zoom in such a way that only data centers in the EU, the EEA or safe third countries such as Canada or Japan are used for "online meetings". You can find further information in Zoom's data protection notice: https://zoom.us/de-de/privacy.html

GoToMeeting

For our online events we use LogMeIn's GoToMeeting software (LogMeIn Ireland Limited, The Reflector 10 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, D02R573, Ireland. To participate in an online event, you will receive an email from us containing an invitation link. We have either received your e-mail address from you or have collected it during the registration process for an online event. In order to join an online event, it is necessary to provide a name. You can also choose a pseudonym. It is not necessary to provide an e-mail address. A given e-mail address is not visible to the other participants. Your data will be temporarily stored in your browser and used for future online events. Your details will be stored in reports about online meetings that have taken place in our administration area. In addition, technical device identification and traffic data such as MAC and IP address, unique device identification data and data on the browser and operating system used are processed. If you activate access to the microphone or video camera of the terminal device used, sound and video data are processed and played back in the online meeting. You can deactivate access at any time by clicking on the buttons with the respective icons. Participation is also possible if you deactivate access. It is also possible to exchange text messages in a group chat. The messages are visible to all participants of the online meeting. If you select the "Transfer screen" function, your screen content will be displayed to all other participants in the online meeting. Before using this function, you should therefore ensure that no sensitive data is displayed on your screen. You can deactivate the function at any time by clicking the corresponding button. If online meetings are being recorded, a red symbol in the lower left-hand area of the screen will indicate this. In this case, all video and audio data will be saved by us. Note: If you visit the provider's other websites or install the provider's application on your device, the processing of personal data is governed exclusively by the provider's data protection regulations, which can be accessed at https://www.logmeininc.com/legal/privacy. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Online meetings are only recorded if we have informed you of this in advance and you have agreed to the recording. The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. We store your personal information in a form that permits identification only for as long as it is needed for the business purposes for which it was collected, or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Personal data processed in connection with a contract with you will be retained by us for the duration of the contract and for a reasonable period thereafter to the extent necessary to establish and settle any related claims. Where our processing of your personal data is based on legitimate interests or on compliance with legal obligations, it will be deleted as soon as the applicable, underlying purpose ceases to apply. Personal data processed on the basis of your consent will be deleted if you revoke this consent. Unless earlier requested or if a shorter retention period is defined in applicable Security and Privacy Operational Controls (SPOC), your account will be deleted or made anonymous no later than twenty-four (24) months after the date of Service termination, expiration, or non-use. For specific details regarding the periods of retention of data for your Account and the information LogMeIn maintains about you on your behalf, please refer to Section 5 of the applicable Service Documents or the Suite-specific SPOC in LogMeIn's Trust & Privacy Center (see "Product Resources" section). Information about your device, operating system and browser used is used on our behalf by LogMeIn only for the purpose of providing, optimizing and securing the GoToMeeting service. Your participation information provided will be used for identification purposes in the online meeting. E-mail addresses provided will not be processed. Transmitted video and audio data will be processed for the purpose of conducting the online meeting and, subject to your consent, for recording it. You will be informed about the purpose of the recording before the recording starts. LogMeIn may also process your data in third countries. The transfer is based on EU standard contractual clauses. We store your participant data such as the name and e-mail address provided for one month in reports on the use of the software. Data on your device will remain until your browser data is deleted. You will be notified of the storage period of recorded online meetings before recording begins. If you withdraw your consent, we will delete the data recorded about you. You can object to the processing of your data at any time by leaving the online meeting. If you object to the storage of your data in reports, please inform us by sending a message to the contact details provided. Any consent to the recording of online meetings can be revoked at any time. You can also reach us at the contact details provided. Revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing that took place up to the point of revocation.

Hopin

For our online events we use the online event platform Hopin (Hopin Ltd of Seedcamp Office, 5 Bonhill Street, Shoreditch, London, England), which is operated on the website hopin.to, for the purpose of handling the registration process, the organization, implementation and possibly also for billing of the event. The following personal data are subject of the processing: - user data: first name, last name, phone (optional), e-mail, password (if SSO is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional) - Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information - for cloud recordings (optional): Mp4 of all video, audio and presentations, M4A of all audio recordings, text file of all in meeting chats, audio log file - IM Chat Logs - Telephony usage data (optional): call in number, call out number, country name, IP address, 911 address (registered service address), start and end time, host name, host e-mail, MAC address of the used device - Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "event". In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the "event" and, if necessary, to log them.

You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the zoom applications. In these cases, we process your personal data on the basis of the consent given during registration for participation in an event (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO) or on the basis of the event contract concluded with you (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO). We will store your data until the event has been fully processed and settled and until no more claims can be made under the participant contract, i.e. until the statute of limitations. As a rule, the statute of limitations shall apply within three years from the end of the event, starting on 31 December of the year in question. If you have given your consent, we will store the data until you revoke this consent, which you can do informally at any time with effect for the future. As a rule, however, we delete such data after a maximum of three years if there has been no further contact between us during this period.

Embeds

We use embeds to optimize our offers and provide you with interesting content. These are not loaded without your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR) in order to protect your data. Some content also originates from social networks or other companies in the USA. By integrating their content, cookies and similar techniques may be used by them and data may be transferred to them in the USA (e.g. your IP address, browser information, cookie ID, pixel ID, page accessed, date and time of access). The transfer of data to third countries is based on EU standard contract clauses.

YouTube

The embedding of a YouTube video is done by the technical process of so-called framing. Framing involves simply inserting an HTML link provided by YouTube into the code of a website to create a playback frame on the third-party site, thus enabling the video stored on YouTube servers to be played. We use the generated framing codes in the so-called "extended data protection mode", so that the cookie activity and the data collection initiated by it is only linked to the use of the playback function of the video itself. Against this background, the collection of data by merely using the website with framed content is prevented. The playing of the videos and the analysis and optimization of our video offer is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO to a secure and efficient provision of this service. In order to generate the embedding link based on the extended data protection mode, a click on "Share" below the desired embed and then on "Embed" is required. The adoption of this link ensures that cookies are only set when the embedded video is played by the user YouTube videos from the social network of YouTube, (Google Inc., Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). [Here](http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy) you will find more detailed information on the purpose and scope of data processing by Google and the settings you can make to protect your privacy.

Vimeo

We use Vimeo videos from Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York 10011, USA, for video playout. These are downloaded from or transmitted through Vimeo. Vimeo processes IP addresses and device information to enable video downloads/reproductions and to determine statistical data, such as download numbers. We have integrated this service in so-called "do-no-track" mode, which means that Vimeo prevents cookies from being set. The playing of the videos and the analysis and optimization of our video offer is carried out with your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. [Here](https://vimeo.com/privacy) you will find more information about the purpose and scope of data processing by Vimeo and your options for adjusting your settings to protect your privacy.

Google Maps

On some pages we use Google Maps (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) to display maps and geographical positions. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the indicated locations and is done with your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. af DSGVO. When you call up a website with a map from Google Maps, your browser automatically transfers data to Google Maps. This data is collected and used by Google. Google uses cookies. [Here](http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy) you will find more detailed information on the purpose and scope of data processing by Google and your options for setting your privacy.

Google reCaptcha

We use Google reCaptcha to determine whether a person or computer is making a certain entry in our contact or newsletter form. Google (Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043. USA) uses the following data to determine whether you are a human or a computer: IP address of the terminal device used, the website you visit with us and on which the captcha is integrated, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the type of browser and operating system used, the Google account if you are logged in at Google and mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas. Based on this data, reCaptcha analyzes your actions on the website and evaluates them with a score between 0 and 1. The lower this value is, the more likely reCaptcha considers the respective user to be a bot. Legal basis for the described data processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. We use reCaptcha solely for the purpose of ensuring the security of our websites, to protect us from automated input (such as bot attacks) and to ensure an exclusively private, non-commercial use by human users. You can find the opt-out for this under [this link](http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout). You can find Google's privacy policy [here](https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de).

We need these data for the initiation of a contract or for the fulfilment of the contract, so that Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO is the legal basis for this processing. After termination of the contract, we will delete your data or block it, unless we are legally obliged to retain this data. Deletion usually takes place after ten years. We pass on some of your data to our external or internal payment, sales, marketing and service providers (for example, for printing, delivery and telephony), who support us both in fulfilling the contract and in customer service. We contractually oblige these service providers neither to use your data for their own purposes nor to pass it on to others, and we regularly monitor compliance with data protection regulations.

Payment processing BS Payone

We transmit your data (name, address and, if applicable, date of birth) to infoscore Consumer Data GmbH ("ICD"), Rheinstr. 99, 76532 Baden-Baden, Germany, for the purpose of credit assessment, obtaining information to assess the risk of non-payment based on mathematical-statistical methods using address data, and to verify your address (check for deliverability). The legal basis for these transmissions is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, because only by transmitting and checking the data can we assess whether the payment obligations can be met, so that we can carry out the contractual activities in a secure manner. Transmissions on the basis of these regulations may only take place if this is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or third parties and does not outweigh the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned, which require the protection of personal data. Detailed information on the ICD in the sense of Art. 14 DSGVO, i.e. information on the business purpose, on the purposes of data storage, on the data recipients, on the right of self-disclosure, on the right to deletion or correction etc. can be found under [this link](https://finance.arvato.com/icdinfoblatt "Privacy BS Payone").

Advertising by e-mail, phone or letter

For advertising purposes, we will only use your contact data beyond the contract-related use if you have consented to this (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO), and for direct advertising for our own and related products if you have indicated this when ordering or registering. If you no longer wish to receive advertising, you can revoke your respective consent or object to direct advertising at any time - by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of the mail - by mail to datenschutz@sv-veranstaltungen.de - in writing to Süddeutscher Verlag Veranstaltungen GmbH, Datenschutz, Justus-von-Liebig-Straße 1, 86899 Landsberg am Lech (please include your e-mail address and the name from the registration/login) - or by phone at 08191/125-570. Your personal data will be passed on to our external and internal marketing and newsletter service providers, provided they support us in data processing. These are contractually obliged by us neither to use data for their own purposes nor to pass it on to others. We will not pass on your data for commercial use without your express consent. The data processed by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any legal storage obligations. Deletion usually takes place after two years of inactivity.

Newsletter

You will receive newsletters from us with news and current announcements from our editorial staff as well as on our product range if you order these newsletters explicitly via a so-called "double opt-in procedure", i.e. the entry of your e-mail address will be checked with the help of a confirmation e-mail to this address. A processing of your personal data will then take place with your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. This also includes the use of search agents, for example on our marketplaces. If you have consented, we will evaluate your clicks in newsletters with the help of so-called tracking pixels, i.e. invisible image files. These are assigned to your e-mail address and are linked to a unique ID to clearly assign clicks in the newsletter to you. The usage profile is used to tailor the newsletter offer to your interests. We record when you read newsletters and which links you click on and use this information to create an interest profile. Your data will not be processed outside the EU or EEA. Your data will be deleted at the end of the year in which you have unsubscribed from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from each newsletter at any time and revoke your consent to the dispatch and evaluation by clicking on the corresponding link at the end of the respective newsletter or by emailing datenschutz@sv-veranstaltungen.de - however, you will then no longer receive any newsletter.

Marketing for own products

In order to show you advertising for our own products, we use the services of advertising partners or cooperate with advertising partners and advertising networks. These use cookies, pixels or similar technical means to display and evaluate advertisements. Advertisements may be customized for each user, for example, by using browser usage information (such as pages visited, hours of use, length of stay). However, user-related advertisements are also possible. Furthermore, evaluations of the range or for billing purposes can be carried out in pseudonymized form. The details of the services used, cooperation partners and individual possibilities of objection are described below. This advertising takes place with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

LinkedIn Insight-Tag

Within our online offer we use with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO) the Insight tag of the social network LinkedIn (LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA, or, if you are resident in the EU, LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland), in order to analyze and optimize our online offer and to be able to operate it economically. The LinkedIn Insight tag enables us to track transactions made after a click on one of our ads and to retarget our site visitors. This is done by targeting users who have already been to our websites and have thus shown interest in our products. This function helps us to evaluate and analyze our advertising activities. Furthermore, the pixel enables the collection of data on visits to our website, including URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics, and timestamps. All this data is encrypted or shortened and the direct IDs of the members are removed within seven days to pseudonymize the data. This pseudonymized data is then deleted within 90 days. In evaluations and reports we cannot see any personal data, but only summaries of website target groups and advertising performance. The processing of data by LinkedIn takes place within the framework of LinkedIn's [Data Use Policy](https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy "DSE LinkedIn"). For specific information and details about LinkedIn Insight tags and how they work, please refer to the LinkedIn help section (https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/65521). You can control the collection through the LinkedIn Insight tag and the use of your information to display LinkedIn ads in [your account settings](https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/advertising "Optout LinkedIn").

Gemeinsame Verantwortung bei Veranstaltungen

If you book and visit our events, we are responsible for processing your personal data together with Süddeutscher Verlag Veranstaltungen GmbH (contact details see above). If you participate in an event organized by us, we process your data in order to carry out the event and to enable you to participate. This also includes, if applicable, that we include your name, details of your company or institution and your current professional position in a list of participants, which is made available to the other participants of the event (if applicable also in electronic form), or, if applicable, we make your data (name, details of company/institution) available to the moderators of the event for the purpose of holding the event. In addition, we use this data to send you event-related materials (e.g. conference proceedings) produced after the event. Furthermore, we may pass on your data to cooperation partners if this is necessary to carry out the event and to enable your participation, e.g. external guest management. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b DSGVO. In addition, we use service providers (contract processors, e.g. dispatch service providers) in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO and subject to instructions, among other things for the postal or digital dispatch of invitations or within the scope of guest management. All processors will only have access to your data to the extent and for the period of time necessary for the provision of the services. If we organize an event together with one or more other event organizers, a possible transfer of data is justified by the fact that we have contractually defined the purposes and means of processing together as jointly responsible for data protection in accordance with Art. 26 Par. 1 DSGVO. We store the above-mentioned data for the purposes also mentioned above until you object, in order to be able to meet the justified mutual interest in communication or information.

Joint controllership with YouTube

We rely on the technical platform and services of YouTube, a Google company with headquarters at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. That is, if you are ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, unless otherwise specified in any Additional Terms, the Services are provided to you by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), a company incorporated and organised under the laws of Ireland. In accordance with the [Google Privacy Policy](https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de), we assume that any transfer of personal data, including the processing thereof, will also be made to servers of Google LLC in the USA. In its ruling in case C-210/16, the European Court of Justice decided that platform operators (here YouTube) and the operator of a channel located on the platform are jointly responsible for the data processing carried out via the respective channel. To this extent, platform operators and channel operators are to be regarded as joint responsible parties or joint controllers in accordance with Art 26 DSGVO. __Data processed by us__ Your personal data is processed for the purpose of market observation and user communication, in particular by initiating and obtaining user feedback. We process the following access data for the above-mentioned purposes: Access source, region, age, gender, subscription status regarding YouTube channel, subscription source, playlist, device type, YouTube product, live/on demand, playback location, operating system, subtitles, language for video information, translations used, element type, info card type, info card, where was shared. The above data processing can be legitimized according to art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO as well as our "legitimate interest". We have referred to the right of objection according to Art. 21 DSGVO (see below). Our legitimate interest lies in playing video content on YouTube with the widest possible reach. With the help of the data collected, the topics, design, length and play time of the videos can be better adapted to user behavior. If you, as a YouTube user, contact us directly, for example through inquiries, comments and feedback, this contact and the communication of your information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO). If necessary, we will forward your comments or reply to them or also write comments that refer to your account. The data you freely publish and disseminate on our YouTube channel will thus be included by us in our offer and made accessible to our followers and other users. In addition, we process the data that you voluntarily give us in the context of a personal message, if necessary to answer the message. __Data processed by YouTube__ For information about what data is processed by YouTube and the purposes for which the data is used, please see the [YouTube Privacy Policy](https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de). By using YouTube, your personal information will be collected, transferred, stored, disclosed and used by YouTube and transferred, stored and used in the United States and any other country in which YouTube does business, regardless of your residence. YouTube will process your voluntarily submitted personal information, such as your name and username, email address, phone number or the contacts in your address book when you upload or synchronize. YouTube also evaluates the content you share to determine what topics you are interested in, stores and processes confidential messages that you send directly to other users, and can determine your location using GPS data, wireless network information or your IP address to send you advertisements or other content. For evaluation purposes, YouTube may use analysis tools such as Google Analytics. If tools of this kind are used by YouTube for the channel by us, this is not done on our behalf. The data obtained during the analysis is not made available to us. We can only view the information on access activities listed under point 1. Finally, YouTube also receives information when you view content, for example, even if you have not created your own account. This so-called "log data" may include your IP address, browser type, operating system, information about the previously visited website and pages you viewed, your location, your mobile operator, the device you are using (including device ID and application ID), the search terms you used, and cookie information. You can restrict the processing of your data in the settings of your YouTube account and information about these options at https://support.google.com/accounts?hl=de#topic=3382296. In addition, for mobile devices (smartphones, tablet computers), you can restrict YouTube access to contact and calendar information, photos, location information, etc. in the settings of these devices. However, this depends on the operating system used.
