Web analysis via Matomo
This Website uses the web analysis service software Matomo (, formerly PIWIK), a service from the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, (“Mataomo”), to collect and store data based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. These data can be used to create and evaluate pseudonymised usage profiles for the same purpose. Cookies can be used to do this. The data collected with the PIWIK/Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) are processed on our servers.

The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor to this Website and is not linked with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

If you do not consent to the saving and analysis of this data from your visit, then you may object to the saving and usage at any time with a click of the mouse as follows. In this case, an “opt-out” cookie will be set in your browser, which will prevent PIWIK/Matomo from collecting any data about your session. Please note that by completely deleting your cookies, the opt-out cookie will be deleted as well and may have to be reactivated by you.
