Incorporation of services and content of third parties

Our Website might contain content from third parties such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other Websites. This requires that the providers of this content ("third-party providers") be aware of the IP address of users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send content to users' browsers. The IP address is thus required in order to display this content. We strive to only use content of this type from providers who only use the IP address to deliver content. However, we have no influence on whether third-party providers save your IP address for statistical purposes, for example. If this is known to us, we make users aware of it.

We hereby dissent to the sending of advertising material and information material that we have not expressly requested using the contact data that we are obliged to publish due to our obligation to provide a legal notice for this Website. The operators of these pages reserve the right to take legal action if faced with the unsolicited sending of advertising information in the form of spam e-mails etc.
