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 or in the online courses, please see our Privacy Policy, especially the "OPEN vhb" and "Social Media" sections.
  2. Use of Google reCAPTCHA when registering via web form (does not apply to registration via Facebook or Google):
    When registering via web form, we use Google reCAPTCHA to check whether the data input is carried out by a human being or by an automated program (for the security and protection of our data processing systems). To this end, Google reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor on the basis of various characteristics. You can find more information and links to Google reCAPTCHA in our Privacy Policy. If you decide to register via web form, you agree with the fact that data will be collected by Google reCAPTCHA as part of the registration process.

  3. Your acceptance of our Terms 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.
