GDPR) we use content or service offerings of third parties to incorporate their contents and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "contents").
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of these contents perceive the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they could not send the contents to their browser.
