Integration of services and content of third parties

It may happen that, within this online offer, third party content such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites is integrated. This always requires that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party") is aware of the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, they are unable to send content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of such content. We endeavour to only use content, whose respective providers use the IP address merely for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence over the third-party provider should they store the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as is known to us, we clarify this to the users.

The list and the look of Facebook Social Plugins can be seen here:

When a user requests a web page from this service that contains such a plugin, their browser opens a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser which then embeds it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence over the extent of the data that Facebook collects using the plugin and informs the user therefore according to their knowledge:

By integrating the plugin Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the service. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the request to their Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example clicking the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transferred from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is nevertheless the possibility that Facebook acquires and stores their IP address. According to Facebook, in Germany only anonymised IP addresses are stored.

Likewise, it is possible to block Facebook social plugins by using browser add-ons, like the "Facebook Blocker".

+1 Button Google+

This service uses the "+1" button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button is identifiable by the "+1" sign on a white or coloured background.

When a user requests a web page from this service that contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection to the Google servers.
