All images on my website are subject to copyright. In case you intend to use any of them for other than private, non-public purposes, you need my prior permission.
First of all I would like to assure that I do not have the slightest interest in your confidential data, so consequently I do not collect any. If you send me a mail I find out your mail address and in case you expect an answer, you need to let me know your name, because I do not talk seriously to persons who hide behind a pseudonym. That’s all, I prefer not to know more.
I use the open source software Matomo for statistical evaluation of this website. Provided that you set up your browser accordingly, it records your visit, which is commonly described as tracking.
- The collected data is consistently impersonal: Display device, screen resolution, type and version of your browser, your operating system, date and time of your visit and the referring site if you did not access this website directly.
- As your IP address is considered to be a confidential date it is anonymised by 2-byte-encryption. 192.168.100.98 for example is shortened to 192.168.0.0, out of which, in terms of figures, result 255,255 IP adresses that could lead to this encryption. Even with malicious intent it is not possibe to draw conclusions as to your network or even to you personally.
- Most of the reasonably modern browsers offer an option to suppress any tracking. I have set up Matomo to respect this decision. If you chose »no tracking« (or however described in your browser) your data will not be recorded. You can see and change your current tracking settings in the following box generated by Matomo:
All above described tracking works without cookies. The only cookie I set is a session cookie to enhance your convenience. Neither the cookie nor the associated session store any confidential data. Both will be deleted immediately after you close your browser. You can deny the acceptance of cookies in your browser settings, but you may notice a moderate of loss of functionality then.
All received information remain in my possession and will not be transferred to third parties or to third countries. The anonymised Matomo log files are deleted irreversibly after 30 days.Home
