Right to revoke your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out prior to such revocation remains unaffected by such a revocation.
Right to data portability

If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Right of appeal to the designated supervisory authority

These videos are all embedded in “extended data protection mode”, which means that no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will data be transmitted.
We use the Google service reCaptcha to determine whether a human or a computer is making a certain entry in our contact or newsletter form. Google uses the following data to check whether you are a human or a computer: IP address of the device used, the website you visit with us on which the captcha is embedded, the date and duration of the visit, the recognition data of the browser and operating system type used, the Google account if you are logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas and tasks that require you to identify images.
