(f) "YouTube" is the YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When I am embedding YouTube videos on christophberg.com, I am using the so-called “Privacy-enhanced mode”. Thus, YouTube will not store any information about your visit to a page on this website that has a YouTube video embedded unless you interact with such videos. The legal basis is provided by Art. 6(1) lit. f) of the GDPR. My legitimate interest is advertising my own work. If you interact with the video, YouTube will receive the information that you have accessed the respective page on this website. In addition, further data may be transmitted to servers operated by YouTube. Should you be logged in to your YouTube and/or Google account, YouTube may associate your browsing behaviour with your personal profile. You can prevent YouTube and/or Google from doing so by logging off of your YouTube and/or Google account prior to interacting with a YouTube video embedded on christophberg.com.
