This website uses the Youtube embedding functions for display and playback of videos offered by "Youtube".

When the playback function of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider sets "Youtube" cookies in order to collect information on users. According to indications from "Youtube", the use of those cookies is intended to record video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to avoid improper actions. Regardless of whether the embedded video is played back, a connection to the Google network "double click" is established when visiting this website. This may trigger further data processing beyound our control.
Further information on "YouTube" data protection can be found in the provider's data protection statement at: http://www.google.co.uk/intl/en-GB/policies/privacy/
