Embedding of third-party services and content

In some cases we embed content of third parties such as YouTube videos. This requires that the providers of these contents register the IP address of the user. Without the IP address they cannot send the content to the user’s browser, which is why this process is necessary for you to be able to view the video. We have no influence on whether the third-party provider stores the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes.
