This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as visiting our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not.
