Embedding Videos GDPR friendly (Two-Click Mode)

Aimy Video Embedder has used the "enhanced privacy for embedded videos" for quite a long time. This option is provided by YouTube to prevent the setting of cookies unless the user watches the video. With the two-click mode in the PRO version you can enhance privacy even more.

Usually, if you embed a video from a platform like YouTube on your website, data of your visitors is transferred to the platform directly when going on that page - even if the user does not watch the video. According to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation / EU privacy law) a user should be informed about that — at best before data is transferred.

With the two-click mode the video is replaced by a placeholder, that is located on your server. This way, the visitor has to click once to load the video and once to play it (two click activation). Within the placeholder you can give information on your privacy policy.

Placeholder of two-click privacy mode of Aimy Video Embedder

Aimy Video Embedder provides a default placeholder in English. You may enter an individual text and/or an image that is shown instead of the video.

GDPR Privacy Policy

Whether you use the two-click mode, just the no-cookie option of YouTube or embed the video without any privacy settings: According to the GDPR you have to provide a page about your privacy policy in any case and include a paragraph on embedding videos.

*Hint on "GDPR friendliness"
Technical possibilities or requirements are not finally defined by the law - we assume the two-click mode as GDPR friendly. But we are webdevelopers - not lawyers or privacy experts. In doupt, please make use of a professional consulting.
