Involvement of services and third party content

From time to time, that third party content such as videos from YouTube, mapping material from Google-Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are directly involved inside this online presence. Prerequisite always is that the presenter of this content (later referred to as third-party provider) recognises the IP address of the user, because without the IP address, the content cannot be sent to the browser of the relevant user. The IP address is therefore necessary for realizing the contents. We take great care to use only such content whose individual presenter uses the IP address solely for the purpose of delivering the content. However, we have no influence in case the third-party provider saves the IP address for statistical purposes for example. If and when it comes to our knowledge, we clarify this with the user.
