3. Collection and Use of Your Data
The extent and nature of the collection and use of your data differ according to whether you only visit our website to retrieve information or to use services offered by us:
a) Informative Use
For the mere informative use of our website, it is generally not necessary for you to provide personal data. In this case, we instead only collect and use Data that your Internet browser automatically transmits to us, such as:
- Date and time of your visit to one of our web pages
- Your browser type
- Browser preferences
- Operating system used
- The last page you visited
- The amount of data transferred and the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.) and
- Your IP address.
During an informative visit, we only collect and use this Data in a non-personal form. This is done to facilitate the use of web pages visited by you, for statistical purposes, and to improve our web site. We store your IP address for the duration of your visit, but no personal evaluation takes place.
b) Use as a Registered Participant
Should you choose to make use of the services offered by us on our website as a registered Participant, however, you will be required to provide additional information. This includes Data that is required for processing your registration, such as (for example) your postal address. Further information may be provided on a voluntary basis; we have marked the corresponding fields as optional. Your Data is collected and used for the purpose of providing the desired service.
To that end, your Data may be forwarded to supporting service providers that we have, of course, carefully selected. These service providers may offer technical support or support in aiding the services we offer.
Your Data shall not be disclosed to other third parties unless otherwise required by law.
Our website employs cookie technology. Cookies are small text files that are sent during your visit to our website by our web server to your browser and stored on your computer for later retrieval.
We only employ the use of so-called session cookies (also called temporary cookies), or cookies that are stored exclusively for the duration of your use of our website. The purpose of these cookies is to continue to identify your computer during a visit to our website when browsing from one web page to another and to be able to detect the end of your visit.
The cookies are deleted when you end your browser session.
Your browser settings can be adjusted to determine whether or not cookies can be stored and retrieved. In your browser, you can deactivate cookie storage all together, restrict it to certain websites, or configure your browser so that it will automatically notify you when a cookie is set and subsequently ask you for confirmation. However, for technical reasons, the full functionality of our website requires that these so-called session cookies are allowed. In this context, no personal Data is collected or stored by us in these cookies. We do not employ any techniques that combine information obtained through cookies with user data.
5. Use of Matomo
It is of great importance to us that our website is designed in the most optimal way to make it attractive for our users. To that end, it is necessary to know how our visitors react to which parts of the design.

The Data collected with Matomo is not used without the explicit consent of the person concerned to personally identify a visitor and is not aggregated with any personal Data regarding the bearer of the pseudonym.
