Connecting to third-party services and content

Third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map data from Google Maps, RSS feeds or diagrams from other websites, may be found embedded within this website. This assumes that the providers of said content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") gain knowledge of the user's IP address. This is because without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to a user's browser. Hence, the IP address is necessary in order to display the above mentioned content. We make every effort to use only content from providers who use the IP address solely for purposes of delivering the content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider stores the IP address for e.g. statistical purposes. If we have any knowledge of such behavior, we shall inform users of it.
