Integrating services and contents of third parties

It may occur that within this online service the content of third parties such as videos from YouTube or tudou may be integrated. This is always under the premise that the providers of these contents (termed "third-party providers" below) register the IP address of the users. For without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for displaying these contents. We make an effort to use only such contents whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the contents. We have no influence however on whether the third-party providers save the IP address, for instance, for statistical purposes. Should this however come to our knowledge, we will notify the users accordingly.
