The owner and controller of this website uses the obtained data and information to evaluate the use of this website for content-optimization purposes. We only collect information about what pages our users visit on this website, at what times and how long they do so, and how they interact with those pages, for example by clicking a certain button. We also store your IP address in an anonymized form to make rough estimates about the geographical origin of your information technology system. We ensure the usage of Matomo in a way that, by no means, we can draw conclusions about your personal identity.

The owner and operator of this website shall process and store all personal data collected about the website users only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
