Privacy Information & Data Protection

Use of Matomo as Web Analytics Tool

On this website, data is collected and stored based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. This is done via the web analysis solution Matomo, a service by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand (hereinafter “Matomo”). For the same purposes, these data may be used to create and analyze pseudonymized user profiles. In order to do so, cookies may be used. Cookies are small text files which are stored locally in the temporary storage of your browser when you visit certain websites. Amongst others, cookies allow your browser to be recognized at a subsequent visit. The data collected by the Matomo solution (including your pseudonymized IP address) are processed on our servers.

The information in the pseudonymized user profile created by the cookie will not be used to personally identify any visitor of this website and will not be merged with personal data of the subject behind the pseudonym.
If you do not agree with the storage and analysis of these data from your visit, you may object to it at any time with a simple click. In that case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, inhibiting Matomo from collecting any session data. Please be aware that deleting all your cookies will delete the opt-out cookie as well, meaning you will have to reactivate it.

Data Protection

A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.

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.
