Involving Third Party Services and Content

Occasionally an online offer or service might contain third party content such as RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires the service providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third party”) to note the user’s IP-address, since they would not be able to send this content to the respective user’s browser without the IP-address. The IP-address is thus required for the presentation of the content. The provider seeks to use only contents, the providers of which use the IP-address for delivering the content only. However, the provider of this site has no influence on whether the third party might save the IP-address e.g. for statistical purposes. Where this is known to occur, users will be informed accordingly.
