7.  Statistical Evaluation of Your Use of Our Online Offering Using the “Matomo” Analysis Tool

In addition, we use the Matomo open-source software which enables us to statistically evaluate visitor traffic using cookies (for more details, see the “Cookies” section). The usage information gathered by Matomo through a cookie, including, in particular, the pages accessed by you, the browser used by you, the operating system of your computer, the referrer URL (previously accessed website), is used in anonymised form to carry out usage analyses and to continuously improve our services.

Your IP address is anonymised in this process, so that you, as a user, remain anonymous to us. You can, however, object to the gathering of your data by Matomo as follows:

  • You can prevent cookies from being saved in your browser by changing your browser settings accordingly; however, please be aware that if you do so, you may no longer have full access to all the functions of our Website.
  • By unchecking the following check box, you can prevent a web analysis cookie from being placed in your browser cache.

A so-called opt-out cookie will then be placed in your browser. Matomo will not collect any session data in this case. Please note: if you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will be deleted as well. In this case, you need to reactivate the check box when visiting our Website the next time if you still want to prevent any data gathering by Matomo.

If you have enabled the “do not track” feature in your browser, Matomo does not track your visit on our Website. If you have not activated this feature, you give your consent to the anonymised processing of your personal data by Matomo for the purpose specified above by using this Website.

8.  Log Files

Besides the evaluation by Matomo, every time a page is accessed, our web server retains access data of this process in a log file. We are provided with usage data in connection with the access which is retained for statistical purposes and may allow identification by means of the IP address. Normally, information such as your IP address, time and duration of your visit, operating system, browser and page impressions is gathered. In some circumstances, this data is personal data, which is the case, in particular, if we have a claim against your Internet provider to disclose your identity (e.g. in case of unlawful behaviour). We use this data only for error analysis. Profiles about our customers’ / Website visitors’ usage behaviour are explicitly not created based on this data.

9.  Use of Personal Data by YouTube When Viewing YouTube Videos

Moreover, YouTube may use corresponding information to display relevant advertising. In addition, YouTube is provided with information as to the pages you have accessed on our online offering.
