Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or transfer viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate your navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Use of script libraries
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loads. If the browser does not support Google web fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

Anyone who has deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to expect any such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
