4. Embedded Third-Party Services and Contents
Third-party content may be embedded on this Website, e.g. videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other web pages. This requires always that the providers of such content (referred to as "third-party providers" below) can detect the user's IP address, since without the IP address they cannot send the content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore required to view such content. We endeavor to only use the content of providers who use the IP address only for sending content. However, it is beyond our control that third-party providers may store the IP address, for example, for statistical purposes. We will inform our users about such a situation as far as we know about it.
