The webpages use so-called cookies in part. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.
This website uses features of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files saved on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the website.

Saving of Google Analytics cookies and use of this analysis tool take place on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize the website.
We use Google Analytics solely with activated IP anonymization. This means that users’ IP addresses are truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other contracting parties to the European Economic Area prior to being transmitted to the US. Through this, your IP address is truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other contracting parties to the European Economic Area prior to being transmitted to the US. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about the website activities and to provide additional services related to use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.

1. Scope of Processing Personal Data
On our website we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software places a cookie on the user's computer (see above for cookies). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:
(1) Two bytes of the IP address of the user's calling system
(2) The web page called up
(3) The website from which the user has accessed the website called up (referrer)
(4) The subpages that are accessed from the website called up
(5) The time spent on the website
(6) The frequency of visiting the website
Thereby, the software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The personal data of users is only stored there. The data shall not be passed on to third parties.
The software is adjusted so that the IP addresses are not completely stored, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer.
2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data
The legal basis for processing users' personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the analysis of surfing behavior and further development of the services provided (see 3.).
3. The Purpose of Data Processing
The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. We are in a position to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website by evaluating the data obtained. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, it is also in our legitimate interest to process the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, users' interest in protecting their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.
4. Duration of Storage
The anonymized data will be erased as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes.
5. Possibility of Objection and Elimination
In this way, another cookie is placed on your system, which signals to our system not to store the user's data. If the user erases the corresponding cookie from his own system in the meantime, he must set the opt-out cookie again.More information about the privacy settings of the Matomo software can be found under the following link: matomo.org/docs/privacy/.
