13. Plugins from YouTube, YouTube videos and channels
13.1 Our website uses plugins from Youtube.de/Youtube.com which - as a subsidiary of Google Inc. - is operated by YouTube, LLC, Cherry Ave., USA (hereinafter designated "YouTube"). The plugins can be identified by a YouTube logo (for example a white "Play" symbol on a red background or the writing "YouTube" in white with "Tube" on a red background). When you visit a web page on our website that contains this kind of plugin, a connection is made to the YouTube servers, which then instructs your web browser to display the plugin on that web page.
13.2 This automatically passes information to the YouTube servers as to which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube or Google, YouTube links this information to your personal user account for these platforms. When you use these plugins e.g. clicking/play button on a video or sending a comment, this information is linked to, for example, your YouTube user account; you can prevent this by looging out of your account prior to using the plugin. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that YouTube collects via this plugin, and have compiled this information to the best of our knowledge. Information on the collection and use of data by the platform and plugins is available at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/
13.3 Various of our websites contain embedded YouTube videos or videos from YouTube channels operated by ourselves. However these only allow connection to YouTube. YouTube is a service provided by Google Inc. To find out more about the purpose and extent of data collection and its use by Google, as well as your rights and the settings available to protect your privacy as a YouTube customer, please refer to YouTube's data protection information YouTube's data protection information.
14. Plugins from Facebook, company profiles
14.1 Our website uses plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. We have also set up various profiles for our company on Facebook. The Facebook plugins can be identified by the Facebook logo (white "f" on a differently coloured background) or the "Like" button ("like" or "thumbs up" symbol) on our page. You can find information about Facebook plugins here.
14.2 When you go to a page on our website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. This gives Facebook the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like" button when you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link our site content with your Facebook profile. This means that Facebook can relate your visit to our website to your user account. Please note that as the operator of the website, we receive no information about the data transmitted nor its use by Facebook.

22. Offline and online competitions
Where entrants' personal data is recorded in the context of competitions held by us, this personal data is collected, processed and used exclusively for the purposes of administering the competitions.
23. Online polls, LamaPoll
23.1 The service provider that we engage stores all of the participants' answers and anonymous statistics relating, for instance, to response time or equipment. As we carry out our surveys anonymously, we only have access to the participants' results. Our service provider uses the data collected to convert the results of the survey into an export format and enable us to access them in their processed form. The process by which the results of the survey are gathered and presented to us is purely automatic. The results are not disseminated to any third party, nor are they used or processed by the service provider for any other purpose.
23.2 All surveys carried out by our service provider LamaPoll are essentially anonymous. No personal information is stored. IP addresses are encrypted (with a one-way function). With anonymous surveys, even by email invitation (see 23.3 and 23.4), it is impossible to attribute answers to individual participants. To protect participants in a poll, it is not possible to change the anonymity settings once the poll has been launched. If a poll is launched anonymously it is guaranteed that all survey results remain fully anonymous. We only carry out anonymous surveys.
23.3 As the creators of the survey, we have the option of carrying out non-anonymous surveys. With non-anonymous surveys, the email addresses of the participants can be linked to the answers (if, for instance, an invitation to a survey has been sent using the LamaPoll address book). Furthermore, the survey may request personal data which may subsequently be used to identify the participant.
23.4 In the case of an anonymous survey, we are obliged to obtain your specific consent to collect, store and use your personal data.
23.5 If we invite a participant via LamaPoll, all data that we have uploaded to the LamaPoll system are stored (generally email address, attributes, gender, depending on the state of the survey creator's/user's data availability). These data are only stored temporarily on the LamaPoll system. We can always remove any uploaded data and survey results. The rules in clause 23.4 also apply in this instance.
23.6 We have entered into the required agreement with our service provider LamaPoll regarding contract data processing in accordance with § 11 of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz: BDSG) in order to establish an adequate level of data privacy protection.
23.7 Further information about data protection is available from our service provider LamaPoll at: https://www.lamapoll.de/Support/Datenschutz
