In order to present our contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory it is possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo can associate your surfing behavior with you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when watching Vimeo videos. However, Vimeo also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.
