How we collect and use your data.

Analytics and tracking

The controller has integrated Matomo components into this website. Matomo is an open-source software tool for web analytics. Web analytics means the collection, compilation and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Amongst other things, a web analytics tool collects data on which website a data subject arrives at a website from (known as referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a sub-page was accessed. Web analytics is largely used for the optimisation of a website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The software operates on the controller’s server and the log data, sensitive to data regulations, is only stored on this server.

The purpose of the Matomo components is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Amongst other things, the controller uses the data and information collected in order to evaluate use of the website and produce online reports which demonstrate our website activity.

Matomo sets a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting cookies, we are able to analyse the use of our website. With every click on an individual page of the website, the internet browser on the IT system of the data subject automatically causes data to be sent to our server for online analysis, by means of the Matomo components. As part of this technological process, we receive information about the personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which helps us, amongst other things, to ascertain the origin of the visitor and the clicks.

Through the cookies, personal data is stored, for example the access time, the location from which the website was accessed and the frequency of visits to our website. On every visit to our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not share this personal data with third-parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website (as explained above) at any time by correspondingly adjusting the Internet browser setting they use; this then permanently blocks the use of cookies. Such an adjustment of the Internet browser used would also prevent Matomo from setting cookies on the information technology system of the data subject. Furthermore, cookies already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
