Integration of third-party services and contents
It may be the case that contents by third parties are integrated within this WEBSITE -for instance YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS-Feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires that the provider of these contents (hereafter referred to as „third-party provider“) detects the IP address of the USER, as without the IP address it would not be possible for the third party provider to deliver the contents to the browser of the USER. Hence the IP address is required in order to visualize the abovementioned contents. We strive to only integrate such contents for which third-party providers use the IP addresses to the only scope of delivering the contents themselves. However, we do not have any influence on the fact that third party providers may save the USER´s IP address, for instance, for statistical purposes. As far as this should be known to us, we will clarify it with the USERs accordingly.
