Integration of services and content from third parties

It can happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as „third-party providers“) are aware of the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, you would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content.

We strive to only use content whose respective provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.
