Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated into this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the users’ IP address. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the respective user's browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if third-party providers store the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform users about it.

We use the so-called “two-click solution”. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially transmitted to the plug-in providers.

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles; to exercise this you must contact the respective plug-in provider.
