3. Integration of third-party services and content

It may be the case that contents from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) will know the IP address of the user, since without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to the browser of the user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. We strive to include only those contents whose providers use the IP address only for the distribution of the contents. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to us, we inform users about it.

Further information on the use of IP addresses can be found on the websites of the respective providers.
