Use of Matomo (formerly Piwik)
Matomo is an open-source software which evaluates visits to websites. The analysis is enabled through cookies. These cookies collect information about your use of our website. The data is stored on a server in Germany. Your IP address has already been anonymised beforehand. However, you have the option of preventing Matomo cookies being saved on your computer.

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS. The data you have transmitted to us cannot be accessed by third parties.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. Those data will not be passed on without your permission.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or for the period of time, which is regulated through the various storage periods by law. After discontinuation of the respective purpose or expiration of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the law.
Social Media Buttons
On our website we are using a software solution by c’t (german computer magazine), called “Shariff”. Shariff replaces the typical share buttons of social networks and thereby protects surfing behavior.
Shariff integrates the share buttons of social networks on our website as a graphic containing a link to the appropriate social network. By clicking on the appropriate icon you will be redirected to the services of your network. The Shariff button provides direct contact between the social network and our users only when the visitor actively clicks the desired button. Only then, your data will be transferred to the respective social network. If however, the Shariff button is not clicked, no exchange will happen between you and the social network. For more details about the c’t project Shariff please visit: http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.
We have included the following social networks on our website with Shariff solution:
- Facebook Inc.
- Twitter Inc.
- Google Plus/Google Inc.
- Pinterest Inc.
- Whatsapp Inc.
