5.1 This website uses the YouTube embedding function to show and play videos of the provider "YouTube". The advanced data protection modus is employed, which - according to provider information - starts saving user information only after playback of the video(s). Once the playback of embedded YouTube videos has commenced, the provider "YouTube" inserts cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to "YouTube" notices, this information is used to gather video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent inappropriate activities. Independently of the playback of embedded videos, every time this website is loaded, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established, which may cause additional data processing procedures that are beyond our control.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Vimeo server in the U.S. and saved there.
