Integration of third party services and content

It may happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map data from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, for examples, are integrated into this online offering. It is always assumed that the provider of this content (hereinafter referred to as the "third party provider") will intrinsically receive the user's IP address, since the content  could not be send to the respective users' browsers without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required in order to display this content. We make every effort to only use such content where the actual provider only uses the IP address in order to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third party provider stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Where we are aware of this, it will be made clear to the user.

Google will use this information on behalf of the provider in order to analyse the use of this website by the users, to compile reports regarding the website activity and to provide other services relating to the use of the website and use of the internet to the website provider.

The IP addresses transmitted as part of Google Analytics from your browser will not be combined with other Google data.
