YouTube functions for the display and playback of videos are integrated in the PDM technology website. These functions are offered by YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066 USA. Further information can be found in the YouTube privacy policies.

The enhanced privacy mode is used here, which, according to the provider, starts recording user information only upon playback of the video(s). When the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, YouTube uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to YouTube, this is used among other things to record video statistics, increase user-friendliness and prevent misuse. Independently from the playback of the embedded videos, a connection to Google’s ‘DoubleClick’ network is established each time the PDM technology website is called up, which may trigger additional data processing operations outside the influence of PDM technology.
