Additional embedding of third-party services and content
In order to analyse and optimise our online service and operate it cost-effectively, we use content or services from third-party providers on our web pages in order to embed their content and services, e.g. videos and fonts. This always requires the third-party providers of this content to use the IP address of users as they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is thus necessary to display this content. We will strive only to use content from providers who supply content solely through the IP address.
