Data protection provisions about the application and use of Matamo.

Here you can learn how we set up and use Matomo and how to prevent any data collection on our website.

On this website, we have integrated the Matomo component. Matomo is an open-source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, gathering and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors from Internet sites. A web analysis tool collects, inter alia, which pages of the website were accessed or how often and for which period of time a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

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

The purpose of the Matomo component is the analysis of the visitor flows on our website. We use the obtained data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports, which show the activities on our Internet pages.

Matomo is set up to use no cookies. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, your internet browser on your device is automatically through the Matomo component prompted to submit data for the purpose of online analysis to our server.

Through your browser, personal information such as the access time, the location from which access was made, including the IP address of the Internet access used by you, are transferred to our server. These personal data will be stored anonymized by us. We do not forward this personal data to third parties.

Matomo is processing the following data:

  • Anonymized IP-address by removing the last 2 bytes (so 198.51.0.0 instead of 198.51.100.54)

  • Pseudo-anonymized Location of the user (generated from the anonymized IP-address)

  • Date and time

  • Title of the page being viewed

  • URL of the page being viewed

  • URL of the page that was viewed prior to the current page (if the page allows it)

  • Screen resolution

  • Time in local timezone

  • Files that were clicked and downloaded

  • Link clicks to an outside domain

  • Pages generation time

  • Country, region, city (low resolution based on IP-address)

  • Main Language of the browser

  • User Agent of the browser

You haves the possibility of objecting to a collection of data relating to a use of this Internet site that are generated by Matomo as well as the processing of these data by Matomo and the chance to preclude any such. For this, you must set a “Do Not Track” option in the browser (we set up Matomo to respect this setting). If you do not want this for whatever reason, please uncheck the box below—this will set a Matomo cookie to remember your setting.

You can always come back to this site and revoke your settings. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Matomo may be retrieved under https://matomo.org/privacy/.
