2.1 Provision of the website

When you access our website, for technical reasons our server will record

  • Your IP address,
  • The respective web page called up from our website,
  • Time of access,
  • As well as the status of the respective access

on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) in providing our website until you leave our website.

2.2 Analysis services

We compile anonymous visitor statistics with your consent (Art. 6 para.1 lit. a DSGVO) using the application Matomo (formerly Piwik), which we host ourselves. This application causes two identification numbers (HTTP cookies) to be stored in your browser in order to distinguish between different users. In this context, your IP address is included anonymously in the evaluation by shortening it in such a way that it is no longer possible to assign it to you.

If you do not agree to your page views being included in the statistics, you have several options:

  • You can delete HTTP cookies in your browser.
  • You can set many modern browsers to signal to the site operators not to include them in such statistics (so-called "do-not-track"). We adhere to this default.
  • Lastly, you can also set specifically for our offer that your use is not included. For this purpose, Matomo will store an opt-out cookie with you that is valid for two years ("piwik_ignore") to turn off the collection.

You have the option to prevent analysis and linking of actions you take. This will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and improving the usability for you and other users.

Your visit to this website is currently collected by Matomo web analytics. Change this option here.


„Cookies“ are small text files that are stored by the visited website on your terminal device (e.g. smartphone, laptop, ...). A distinction is made between permanent („persistent“) and temporary („transient“) cookies. The temporary cookies (also called session cookies) are deleted directly after leaving a website and/or closing the browser. The permanent cookies remain stored on the end device for a longer period even after closing the browser. If a permanent cookie contains an indication of the lifetime, the cookie is automatically deleted by the browser after this lifetime.

A distinction is also made between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. The First-party cookies come from the website itself, whereas the Third-party cookies are set by third parties that are integrated into the website (e.g. embedded tweets or YouTube videos).

Cookies serve different purposes. In addition to saving e.g. view settings, cookies can also be used for
tracking or analytical purposes (see also section 2.2. Analysis Services of this DSE). You can set the extent to which your browser accepts cookies in the respective settings of the common browsers:

  • Do not accept cookies.
  • Only accept First-party cookies and no Third-party cookies.
  • For each cookie, ask how the cookie should be handled.

In addition, you can set your browser to delete all cookies (including permanent cookies) when you close your browser.
If all cookies are blocked, the use of a website may be restricted.
