Web Analysis: We do not track you!

We want to improve our website offerings, relying on the features of "Matomo" (formerly "Piwik"), an open-source software tool for web analytics.This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analyzing the activities of a user across devices. Your privacy is important to us, so the user data is pseudonymised.

The analysis uses cookies that allow an analysis of the use of the website. The software is operated on the server of the KDZ, the data protection-sensitive log files are stored exclusively on this server. You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored. We have concluded an appropriate contract data processing contract with the web host.
