We use within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), content or services offered by third-party providers in order to integrate their content and services. 

This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of your IP address, since the content or service could not send to your browser without the IP address.

The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website.
