We use certain Google services for our website. If you access our website from a location in the European Union, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, “Google” means Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; in all other cases, “Google” means Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

6. Google Fonts
Our website uses fonts that are provided by Google as “Google Fonts”. The Google Fonts are downloaded directly from Google by your device when you access our website. As a result, Google gains knowledge of your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type and version and evaluates that data for its own commercial purposes.
7. Analysis tools and advertising
Matomo (formerly called Piwik)
This website uses the open-source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that make it possible to recognize the user across multiple pages with the aim of analyzing the user patterns (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information recorded by Matomo about the use of this website will be stored on our server. Prior to archiving, the IP address will first be anonymized.
Through Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on the use of our website-by-website visitors. This enables us to find out, for instance, when which page views occurred and from which region they came. In addition, we collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser, and operating system used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user patterns, in order to optimize the operator’s web offerings and advertising. If a corresponding agreement has been requested (e.g. an agreement to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.
For analysis with Matomo we use IP anonymization. Your IP address is shortened before the analysis, so that it is no longer clearly assignable to you.
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.
8. Your Rights
You have the following rights with regard to your personal data that we process:
You have the right to obtain a confirmation from us as to whether we process personal data concerning you. If this is the case, we will inform you about your personal data that is stored by us and of other information subject to Art. 15(1)&(2) of the GDPR.
You have the right to have your inaccurate personal data rectified without undue delay. Taking into account the purposes of processing, you also have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data if one of the requirements of Art. 18(1) of the GDPR applies. In particular, you can request the restriction instead of an erasure.
We will communicate any rectification or erasure of your personal data and/or a restriction of processing of your personal data to all recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal data, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Upon your request, we will additionally inform you about those recipients.
You have the right to receive your personal data which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you have the right to request that we transmit such data to another controller without hindrance, where technically feasible.
Insofar as data processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of data processing performed before your revocation.
RIGHT TO OBJECT: YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT, ON GROUNDS RELATING TO YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION, AT ANY TIME TO PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA; this right to object relates to data processing based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR which is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of your personal data. If you exercise your right to object, we will no longer process your relevant personal data unless we can demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your own interests, rights and freedoms or that processing serves the purpose of enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims.
IF WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA IN ORDER TO CARRY OUT DIRECT ADVERTISING (SUCH AS A NEWSLETTER), YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING WITH THE RESULT THAT WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR DATA FOR SUCH PURPOSES.
