In case you visit our YouTube channel, YouTube and its parent company Google collects your IP address and other personal information using cookies.

This information is retrieved during subsequent visits to the website and enables the website to recognize the user device.

As the operator of the YouTube channel, we are therefore involved in the determination of the purposes and means of processing the personal data of the visitors to our profile and are therefore joint controllers with YouTube (and therefore Google) for this processing in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR.
