Data Privacy

When you access this website, the “Matomo” analysis tool, in compliance with data protection regulations, detects visitors who are used for analytical purposes to evaluate the articles and marketing measures. IP addresses are recorded in a shortened way and stored in a manner that is no longer traceable (anonymized). This data is only processed on our servers.

Apart from for statistical purposes with the analysis tool “Matomo”, the website’s language settings and other log-in data are also stored in the form of cookies.
Additionally there is an Opt-In for visitors to save their comments user data for later usage.

IP adresses and email adresses are used for Anti-spam-measures and optional to be saved for reocurring visitors (see Cookies). This data will not be used for other purposes.

For the newsletter, we rely on the external and established provider “Mailchimp”. To subscribe to the newsletter, all you need is your e-mail address.

The following information is collected: the opening of the newsletter and how often a person clicks on a particular link. (You will also receive this information in the newsletter registration.)
