Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data from which website an user came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The software is operated on the server of our webhoster, the data protection sensitive log files are stored exclusively on this server.

The purpose of Matomo is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, we use the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports showing the activities on our website.

Matomo sets a cookie on the device of the website-user. By setting the cookie, we are enabled to analyze the use of our website. Each time you visit one of the individual pages on this website, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically led by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process, we gain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which among other things serves to help us understand the origin of visitors and clicks.

12. Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font. The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data. The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

13. SSL encryption
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.

14. Rights of the user: information, correction and deletion

As a user, you will receive, at your request, free information about which personal data has been stored about you. If your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain data (eg data retention), you are entitled to correct incorrect data and to block or delete your personal data.

15. Length for which the personal data are stored 

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

16. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

The provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with this person. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact us. We will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.

17. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
