WEB ANALYSIS

Evaluation of User Behaviour                 

To better understand what makes our website interesting to visitors and whether they are able to navigate it easily, we use Matomo, an open source analysis tool. For this we don't store permanent cookies on your end device and only record anonymous data about your visit, like duration of stay, pages viewed or link pages. Your IP address is rendered anonymous and then evaluated on an anonymous basis. The anonymisation of IP addresses is achieved by deleting the last two bytes of the IP address (example: 192.168.xxx.xxx). This method makes the exact location of the user unrecognisable, with only a rough geolocation remaining visible. The evaluation is carried out monthly and the statistics are analysed by the Hub Agency (RCKT GmbH & Co. KG) on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). The data is automatically deleted after a maximum of six months.

Objection to Anonymised Tracking

You may object to the anonymous and cookie-free collection of data. For this, an anonymous opt-out cookie is set in your browser, which completely and permanently deactivates tracking. In this case we don't store any statistics on your visit until you deactivate or delete this cookie yourself.

Anonymous tracking permitted. Click here to deactivate tracking.
