Among other things, the following information is collected and transmitted to Just Ebert Design: Date and time of the page view, a random ID, Consent Status. The website operator does not process the data itself; the data is stored as a log file. An access to the logfiles of our customers takes place only by previous arrangement and agreement of the customer. This data is not passed on to other third parties. Data processing is carried out to fulfill a legal obligation on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

Communication by e-mail    
We wish to point out that the data transmission on the internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) can have breaches or gaps in security. It is impossible to completely protect the data against access by third parties.

It is expressly opposed herewith for third parties to use the contact data, which has been published within the framework of the publishing duty, in order to send advertising and informational literature to you which has not been requested expressly. The operators of the pages on the web sites expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the case that advertising information is sent unsolicitedly, such as via span e-mails.

You Tube    
The person who is responsible for the processing has integrated You Tube's components into this internet site. You Tube is a video portal which enables various publishers of videos to insert their video clips on the internet and it also allows other users to view them, evaluate them and comment on them free of charge. You Tube permits all types of videos to be published, which is why not only complete films and television programmes but also musical videos and trailers can be called up on You Tube and various users can publish the videos that they have made themselves via this internet portal.

You Tube's operating company is called YouTube, of LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., of 1,600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The internet browser will be automatically configured by You Tube's respective components (You Tube's video) to download a representation of You Tube's appropriate components from You Tube onto the affected person's IT system when calling up one of the individual pages on this internet site which is being operated by the person who is responsible for the processing and into which one of You Tube's components (You Tube's video) has been integrated. Further information about You Tube can be called up at You Tube and Google will obtain information about the definitive sub-page of our internet site which is being visited by the affected person, within the framework of this technical procedure.

You Tube and Google will then always receive information via You Tube's components that the affected person has visited our internet site when the affected person is simultaneously logged into You Tube at the point in time of calling it up; this takes place irrespectively of whether the affected person clicks on one of You Tube's videos or not. If the affected person does not wish such information to be transmitted on YouTube and Google, then he can prevent this transmission through logging out of his You Tube's account before calling up our internet site.

The data-protection provisions that You Tube publishes - which can be called up at - give an explanation about how You Tube and Google collect or compile, process and use the personal data.
