Integration of Video Content
(see also https://vimeo.com/privacy)
Our website uses plugins by the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Every time that a page offering one or more Vimeo video clips is accessed, a direct connection is established between your browser and a Vimeo server in the United States. As part of the process, information regarding your visit and your IP address is stored there. Interacting with the Vimeo plugins (e.g. clicking the start button) causes this information to also be transmitted to Vimeo and stored there.
If you have a Vimeo user account and do not wish Vimeo to collect data on you via this website and associate it with your member data stored at Vimeo, it is necessary to log out of Vimeo before visiting this website.
The data protection and privacy statement for Vimeo containing further information on Vimeo’s collection and use of your data is available at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
In addition, Vimeo calls up the tracker Google Analytics via an iFrame, in which the video is retrieved. This involves Vimeo’s own tracking to which we have no access. You can prevent tracking by Google Analytics by using the deactivation tools that Google offers for a number of internet browsers. Moreover, users can prevent the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics relating to their use of the website (including their IP address) and the transmission thereof to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=gb
Hopefully that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren't sure whether you need or not it's usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.
