§6 Integration of third-party services 

YouTube

(1) We have integrated YouTube videos in our online offerings and these are saved at www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all in the “expanded data protection” mode, i.e. no data about you as a user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only after you play the videos, will the data listed in paragraph 2 be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

(2) Through your visit to the website, YouTube will be informed that you have opened on the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data named in §3 of this declaration will be transmitted. This will happen regardless of whether you are logged in to a YouTube user account, or if there is not user account at all. If you are logged into Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your data immediately assigned to your account, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube will store the data as a user profile and use it for promotional purposes, market research and/or the user-friendly design of its website. Such assessments are primarily made to provide tailored advertisements (even for users who are not logged in) and to inform other users in the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of a user profile, however, you must address these objections to YouTube.

(3) You can find out more about the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by YouTube in the data protection declaration.

“Tailored Audiences” and “Conversion Tracking” by Twitter and LinkedIn offer the opportunity to target existing users and customers who have visited the Freudenberg website with relevant campaigns. This is done by Twitter and LinkedIn using a website tag to store anonymized user data. When a user visits our website, a Twitter or LinkedIn cookie is placed in the browser.

Freudenberg adheres to the guidelines for Conversion Tracking and Tailored Audiences of the company Twitter (https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172376#). Users who wish to deactivate interest-based advertising on Twitter can do so, for example, via the respective unsubscribe mechanism defined by Twitter (currently here: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20171528#).
