Integration of services and content of third parties
This online offer may contain third-party content such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always assumes that the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") obtain knowledge of the user's IP address, since without the IP address they could not transfer the content to the respective user’s browser.
