Leanify may integrate third-party services and content into its website and associated services. Examples are YouTube videos, Google Maps services, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites.

Leanify strives to integrate only those contents and services whose third-party providers use the user’s IP address solely for sending their services and contents.
