Thus YouTube makes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network, independently of whether you watch a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection is made to the YouTube servers. Thus the YouTube server is notified of which of our sites you visited. When you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surf behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

In addition, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. Using these cookies, YouTube can receive information about the visitors of our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user friendliness and prevent attempts at fraud. The cookies stay on your end-device until you delete them.
