4. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
If you have given your consent to the display of third-party content in the consent management, we will integrate content from other websites and providers on our website, each of which is responsible for the data processing thereby taking place in accordance with Art. 4 No. 7 DSGVO. Your end device establishes a direct connection to the server of the respective provider, whereby the provider at least collects and processes your IP address and telemetry data to establish the connection and play out the content. Insofar as this is a process requiring permission under data protection law, the legal basis is your consent to the display of the content.

The providers may, for example, monitor your behaviour and also create usage profiles, possibly also outside the EEA. You can decide at any time not to display third-party content in the future ("revocation") by setting the corresponding setting in the consent management.
