If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour. If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to expect any such cookies when watching Youtube videos.

Further information on data protection at “Youtube” can be found in the provider’s privacy policy.

Futouris uses Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). The Futouris Facebook page is linked to the Futouris website.

When you access the Futouris Facebook page, a connection is established between your browser and the Facebook servers. In the process, data is already transferred to Facebook. If you have a Facebook account, this data can be linked to it. If you do not wish this data to be associated with your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting our site. Interactions, in particular the use of a comment function or the clicking of a “Like” or “Share” button are also passed on to Facebook. You can find out more here.
