Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that content or services from third-party providers, such as city maps or fonts from other websites, are integrated within our online offer. The integration of content from third-party providers always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the user, since without the IP address they could not send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of the third-party content can set their own cookies and process the users’ data for their own purposes. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content in a data-saving and data-avoiding manner as far as possible and select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in part already mentioned here, opt-out options:
