As a result, complete films, television shows, music videos, trailers and even videos produced by users themselves can be accessed on the Internet portal. The operating agency of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland.

Every access to one of the individual pages of this Internet site operated by the parties responsible for processing and containing an integrated YouTube component (YouTube video) causes the Internet browser on the information technology system of the accessing person to automatically download the displayed matter of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube by way of the particular YouTube component.

This information is collected by YouTube and Google and attributed to the corresponding YouTube account of the accessing person.

From the YouTube component, YouTube and Google receive information that the accessing person has visited our Internet site if the accessing person is also logged into YouTube at the time they accessed our Internet site. This happens whether the accessing person has clicked on a YouTube video or not. If such a transfer of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the accessing person, the person can preclude this transfer by logging out of their YouTube account prior to accessing our Internet site.
