Social sharing buttons

Our Sharing Buttons of the social networks do not use social plugins of the corresponding services (Facebook, Twitter etc), but are merely references to the respective services.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
