However, we have embedded our YouTube videos with the extended data protection mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts Google’s Double Klick service, but personal data is not evaluated in the process, according to Google’s privacy policy). This means that YouTube no longer stores information about visitors unless they watch the video. When you click on the video, your IP address is transmitted to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have viewed the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information is also assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video).
