7) Web Analysis Services

The Google Tag Manager provides a technical basis for bundling various web applications, including tracking and analysis services, and for calibrating, controlling and attaching conditions to them via a uniform user interface.
Google Tag Manager itself does not store any information on user end devices or read them. The service also does not perform any independent data analyses.
However, the Google Tag Manager transmits your IP address to Google when you visit a page and may store it there. Also a transmission to servers of Google LLC in the USA is possible.

All processing described above, in particular the reading or saving of information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website.

7.2 Matomo
This website uses a web analytics service provided by the following provider: InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, ("Matomo").
To protect site visitors, Matomo uses a so-called "config_id" to enable various analyses of site usage within a short time window of up to 24 hours. The site's "config_id" is a randomly set, time-limited hash of a limited set of the visitor's settings and attributes. The config_id or config hash is a string of characters calculated for a visitor based on their operating system, browser, browser plugins, IP address and browser language. Matomo does not use device fingerprinting and uses an anonymised IP address of the site visitor to create the "config_id".
Insofar as the information processed in this way includes personal user data, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes. To object to data processing of your visitor data for the future, we provide you with a separate objection option on our website.
If data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) is transferred to Matomo servers in New Zealand and processed for usage analysis purposes, we inform you that the European Commission has issued a so-called adequacy decision for New Zealand, which certifies compliance with European data protection standards for international data transfers.

The service checks whether an input is made by a natural person or abusively by machine and automated processing with the aim of blocking spam, DDoS attacks and similar automated malicious attacks.

9) Tools and Miscellaneous

This website uses a so-called "cookie consent tool" to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The "cookie consent tool" is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box.

Using the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user provides the corresponding consent by ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the respective end device of the user if consent has been granted.

The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is generally not processed.
If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point GDPR based on our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.
Further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) point c GDPR. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
