On this website, data is evaluated for statistical purposes and to improve the offer using technologies of the statistics tool Matomo and then deleted. Data is not used in any other way or passed on to third parties.

Every time a user accesses the website and every time a file is retrieved, data about this process is temporarily stored and processed in a log file. Before storage, each data record is anonymised by changing the IP address. After anonymisation, an assignment to the requesting computer or connection is no longer possible according to the current state of technology. The information generated by the cookie is only passed on to the internally operated server. It is not passed on to third parties. The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f) EU-DSGVO with the legitimate interest of usage analysis to improve the web offer. It is possible to object to the processing of user data for the analysis of user behaviour. In the right-hand column, you as a user have the option of deactivating the collection of user data.

In detail, the following data is stored for each access/retrieval:

  •  technical characteristics of the browser used,
  •  anonymised IP address,
  •  date and time,
  •  page accessed/name of the file accessed,
  •  amount of data transferred,
  •  message as to whether the access/retrieval was successful.

When calling up individual pages, so-called temporary cookies are used to facilitate navigation. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the site visitor's internet browser. These session cookies do not contain any personal data and expire at the end of the session. Techniques such as Java applets or Active-X controls, which make it possible to track the access behaviour of users, are not used.
