On our website we use the video platform YouTube, which is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno CA 94066, USA ("YouTube"). YouTube is a platform dedicated to the reproduction of audio and video files. When you access a page of our internet presence, the integrated YouTube player on that page connects to YouTube in order to ensure the technical transmission of the file or audio file. When connecting to YouTube, data are transmitted to YouTube. We draw your attention to the fact that we have no knowledge of the content of the data transferred in this way or YouTube's use of the data.

Stored personal data is deleted whenever you revoke your consent to its storage, whenever knowledge of such data is no longer required for the purpose of meeting the purpose for which the data has been stored, i.e. when the process is completed and no statutory time limit for deletion mandates otherwise, or if the data cannot be stored for any other legal reasons. If the data cannot be deleted, they will be frozen for further processing until the statutory time limit for deletion has passed.
Links to other sites
The Hamburg Regional Court (Landgericht Hamburg) declared on 12 May 1998 – Reference No.: 312 O 85/98 – that a company / person assumes responsibility for the content of any third party websites which they link to unless the company / person expressly distances itself from the linked content. For this reason, STOPA Anlagenbau GmbH hereby expressly distances itself from the content of all linked websites. STOPA has no influence over the content of the sites linked to and therefore assumes no liability for the content being up-to-date, correct or complete, nor for its quality or future design. Sole responsibility for the content of any linked website lies with the providers of the linked website.
