Integration of services and contents of third parties

It may happen that within this online offer content of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS-Feeds or charts from other websites, are included. This implies that the provider of these contents (consecutively called third party provider) notices the IP address of the user. Without the IP address they could not send the contents to the browsers of the users. The IP address is therefor needed to display the content. We try to use only the content from providers which use the IP address only for transferring the content. We do not have influence in case third party providers save the IP address for e.g. statistical reasons. If we are aware about this we inform our users.
