Introduction to cookies
Strictly necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
Our use of strictly necessary cookies is based on Sec. 25 (2) No. 2 Data Protection and Privacy in Telecommunications and Telemedia Act (“TTDSG“).
We use the open source software tool Matomo on our website to analyse the web-browsing behaviour of our users. The software places a cookie on your computer. If individual pages of our website are called up, we store the following information: Two bytes of the IP address of the system you are visiting the website from, the visited website, the website from which you have reached the visited website (referrer), the subpages that are visited from the website, the time spent on the website and the frequency of website visits.
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website, so that your personal data is also only stored on our servers. Personal data is not passed on to third parties. The software is set in such a way that the IP addresses are not stored completely, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, matching the shortened IP address to the visiting computer is no longer possible.
The processing of the user’s personal data enables us to analyse the web-browsing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the personal data, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness.
This processing is based on your consent (Sec. 25 (1)TTDSG and Art. 6(1)(a)GDPR).
Our website uses plugins of the video portal YouTube. The provider is Google LLC. A connection to the Google servers is established when you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin and you have consented to this happening. In doing so, the Google server is informed that you have visited our site. In addition, Google obtains your IP address. The information collected by Google is transmitted to the Google server in the USA.
This processing of personal data is based on your consent (Sec. 25 (1) TTDSG and Art. 6(1)(a)GDPR).
