Integration of Third Parties’ services and contents
It may occur that third-party contents, such as YouTube videos, card material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated into this online offer. This presupposes that the content providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) seize the users’ IP address because they cannot send the contents to the browser of the respective user without their IP address.
