Web analysis by Matomo
Our website uses Matomo, which is a web analysis service. We have set up Matomo to record only anonymized (shortened) IP addresses and not to store any cookies on your device. Furthermore, no pseudonyms are applied. Hence, visitor counting is based on anonymized data only.
With your consent we can send you a newsletter, which regularly informs you about the development of the project.
For being able to send you the newsletter we need an email address from you. No other personal details are required. To ensure that you have entered your email address into the subscription form by yourself, we apply the so-called double opt-in procedure. For this purpose we will send you an email after registration asking for your consent to receive the newsletter. If you do not agree in subscription within 24 hours, your email address will not be considered for distribution of the newsletter and will automatically be deleted after one month. Furthermore, the IP address of the device used for subscription and access to the newsletter and a timestamp will be saved. The aim of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration and possible abuse of your personal data if necessary.
You may revoke your consent to the storage of your email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the „unsubscribe“ link in the newsletter.
Legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter is in the case of the user’s consent Article 6 section (1) item a GDPR.
For newsletter distribution we make use of the services offered by a third-party provider. We have concluded a data processing agreement with this provider to ensure protection of your personal data. Currently, our newsletter service provider is:
