The controller has integrated the matomo component into this website. matomo is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, gathering and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data on the website from which a data subject came to a website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of time a sub-page was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The software is operated on the controller’s server, the privacy-relevant log files are stored exclusively on this server.
The purpose of the matomo component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, the controller uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports showing the activities on our website.
matomo sets a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, we are able to analyse the use of our website. Upon each visit to one of the individual pages on this website, the internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically triggered by the matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process, we gain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which among other things serves to help us understand the origin of visitors and clicks.
The cookie stores personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of visits to our website. Upon each visit to our website, this personal information, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not share this personal information with third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as already indicated above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently prevent the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent matomo from setting a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by matomo can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the recording of the data generated by matomo on the use of this website.
If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reset an opt-out cookie. By setting the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the controller’s website is no longer fully usable for the data subject.
