Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

You should check the privacy policies at the websites of the content publishers of such embedded content.

  1. Embedded YouTube-Hosted Videos 

Content on certain web pages on our Websites includes embedded video content hosted on YouTube, operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. 

Each time you view one of the web pages on our Websites that include such embedded YouTube video content, your Internet browser will be automatically prompted to load the corresponding YouTube-hosted content (subject to any content controls that you have set up for your browser). Each time you load such content, YouTube and Google obtain information about the specific webpage of our Websites from which you loaded YouTube-hosted content. 

If you start to play a YouTube video from our Websites, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified as to which of our web pages you have visited to view YouTube-hosted video content. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, as you are viewing YouTube-hosted content, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device. With the assistance of these cookies, YouTube will be able to obtain information about you. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user-friendliness of the Website that you are visiting and to prevent attempts to commit fraud. These cookies will stay on your device until you delete them.

Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube-hosted video, which are beyond our control. This means that the sharing of data with YouTube partners cannot be ruled out. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.

We invite you to share certain content from our Websites (e.g., blog posts) on your Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), and/or LinkedIn social media accounts.
