Web Fonts

This website uses external fonts, so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google. Google Fonts is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. The integration of these web fonts is done by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This transmits IP-related data to Google.

The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at and in the Google privacy policy

Embedded YouTube videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function to enable UAS to display and play image or study information videos. The provider of this service is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When embedding, the extended data protection mode is used, which, according to the provider, only initiates storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider "Youtube" uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from "Youtube", these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behavior.

We also use the "2-click solution" to prevent the immediate and unintentional transfer of personal data. When you click on the preview image of the video, a notice appears that data is transmitted to "Youtube" by activating the video. Only when you play a video, this connection can trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

We would like to point out that if you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

For more information on data protection at "YouTube", please refer to the provider's privacy policy at:

Legal basis: The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO)

Google Analytics

We use functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will use this information within the scope of our agreement on commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO in order to evaluate the use of our online offer by the users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with further services associated with the use of this online offer and the use of the Internet. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data from Google.

The data processing is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). This is the improvement of our online offer with the help of the collected anonymized data.

You can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the online offer to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by clicking on the link below. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to this website.
