Inclusion of third-party services and content
Content from third parties, for example YouTube videos, material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may occasionally be included within this online offer. This always requires the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) to detect the IP address of the user, because without it they would be unable to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus required for this content to be displayed. We endeavour only to use content from providers who use the IP address for the sole purpose of content delivery. However, we have no influence on decisions by third-party providers to save the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. We will inform users if we become aware of this.

Data protection pattern of lawyer Thomas Schwenke - I LAW it
We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities. The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.
