Please note:

  1. We expressly point out that content from various social media providers (including Google/YouTube, Facebook) is embedded in the online courses offered via the OPEN vhb platform. If you are logged in to the platform and call up a page with embedded content from a social media provider, a direct connection will automatically be established between your browser and the servers of the respective social media provider without further inquiry. This may result in cookies being set by the service providers and user data being transmitted to the service providers. For a complete list of those social media providers whose content is embedded on the platform/in the online courses, please see our Privacy Policy, especially the "OPEN vhb" and "Social Media" sections.
  2. Your acceptance of our Regulations of Use and of our Privacy Policy is required each time we make changes to the underlying documents. If necessary, this dialogue will therefore be displayed again at a later date.
