V. Web tracking with Matomo
1. a) Description and scope of data processing
This website uses the tool Matomo for web analysis. To better understand what interests visitors to our websites and whether they find their way around, we use the open source analysis tool Matomo (formerly Piwik). This tool sets a cookie to distinguish individual users from each other. However, since Matomo is hosted on our server, this data never leaves our area of responsibility. This is therefore a much better alternative than tools such as GoogleAnalytics, where the visit statistics are processed externally. IP addresses are anonymized by six digits in our configuration and do not allow any conclusion to the actual connection. If you do not want your visits to our websites to be recorded, you can activate the 'Do not track' option in your browser and Matomo will not collect any data from you.

1.b) Legal basis and purpose of data processing
The use of the Matomo service takes place in the case of legitimate interest according to 6 paragraph 1 f DSGVO.

1.c) Purpose of data processing
The purpose of processing personal data is to compile statistics on the origin of visitors, their time spent on individual pages and the use of search engines. The creation of these statistics serves to improve the monitoring of the website's success and to ensure targeted advertising and promotional campaigns, which is essential for the refinancing of the website. Statistical analysis, which ensures comparability with other market participants, is essential for the marketing of this website. Our legitimate interest results from the economic usability of the findings from the statistics and the statistically determined market value of our website, also in direct comparison with third-party websites.

1. d) Duration of data storage
The collected data are stored for 24 months.

1. e) Possibility to object and remove
You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and your use of the website (including your shortened IP address) by activating the 'Do not track' option in your browser.

To protect your privacy, you must first activate the videos on our pages. When you activate or play the videos, cookies from YouTube or DoubleClick may be stored on your device and/or read and data may be sent to YouTube or DoubleClick (USA, Google), such as Yahoo! your IP address and cookie ID, the specific address of the page we called up, system date and time of the call, identifier of your browser.
For the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube or DoubleClick, please refer to the information provided by Google: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
