We take data protection very seriously and have therefore implemented the social media plugins with a data protection-friendly solution.
The exact procedure is described below:

At least one plugin from YouTube (Google Inc., located in San Bruno/California, USA) is used on the websites operated by KNOTT GmbH. As soon as you visit pages of our website
equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which special page of our Internet presence you have visited. If
you are also logged into your YouTube account, you would allow YouTube to associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile. In addition, Youtube establishes a
connection to the Google double-click network (Google’s advertising network). As a partial solution, YouTube offers playback in extended data protection mode. This option has been
activated for our website.

exclusively for the purposes stated in each case.
