Inte­gra­tion of services and content of third-parties

It may happen that third-party content such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are inte­grated in this website Offer. This always presup­poses that a provider of such third-party content (hereinafter referred to as “Third-party provider”) takes notice of the IP address of a user, since the IP address is required for sending such third-party content to the browser of the respec­tive user. Thus, the IP address is required for displaying such content. We strive to only use content where the use of an IP address by the respec­tive Third-party provider is limited to the deli­very of the respec­tive content. However, we have no control over Third-party provi­ders, if they store IP addresses, for example, for statis­tical purposes. We shall advise users accord­ingly insofar as this is known to us.
