Social extensions

The website uses a so-called social extension to a third-party (YouTube) social plugin. Third-party applications are subject to the third party’s terms of use and other conditions. The online service uses a no-cookie solution for YouTube videos, which means that user information is transferred to the YouTube service only when viewing a video.
