Youtube

The TGAMET website uses the platform youtube.com by Google to integrate videos.

Youtube videos are only accessed by clicking on them separately. This technique is also called ‘framing’. In the event you click a link on such video or content integrated on the TGAMET website but stored on youtube.com Youtube stores the data (IP address) on its servers and in accordance with its own privacy guidelines and uses them for business purposes. As soon as you start playing the integrated video by clicking on it, YouTube only stores cookies on your device that do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions. Cookies are only placed with the consent of the user if legally required (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a) GDPR). Data processing may also be based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f) GDPR or TMG with legitimate interests of displaying videos/content on the involved websites.

For users who have their usual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited is the data controller for your data on Youtube. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google which is responsible for processing your data and complying with applicable data protection laws. Google LLC is certified according to the “Privacy Shield” agreement between the European Union and the USA and guarantees compliance with applicable European data protection regulations (see: www.privacyshield.gov/).

Storage period and erasure of data

We process personal data only as long as it is necessary to achieve the purposes or is prescribed by a legal obligation to store the data. The data will then be erased immediately. Data we store for legal reasons will be retained for as long as is required by law (up to ten years). However, data we collect in the course of litigation will be retained for as long as is legally permissible. This may be up to 30 years. Regarding protocols that store network data, we delete the data at regular intervals - the exact time varies according to configuration rules (which can shorten the protocols by size and not by a specified time), whether the data was part of a snapshot that landed in a backup, and whether the protocols are part of a set of protocols that are routinely forwarded to a central protocol repository, but never longer than two years. For details on data storage and deletion periods please also refer to the specific sections in this or our other privacy policies, as applicable.

Data security

TGAMET has implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures according to applicable data protection laws to ensure data security. The website is operated through a HTTPS-connection, which is a protocol used to encrypt the connection from your device to our servers.

Changes to our privacy policy

TGAMET reserves the right to change this privacy policy at any time, while TGAMET will always comply with the legal requirements for data protection. Therefore, TGAMET recommends that users regularly take note of the applicable privacy policy. TGAMET will inform users in advance of any further use of data.
