Share buttons

At the bottom of the pages we provide a button bar via the service AddToAny, so that you can share the content in social networks.

Neither AddToAny nor we collect personal data from the use of the share buttons (see AddToAny Privacy Policy).

Visitor statistics

For statistical analysis of page views, we use the WordPress plug-in from Matomo, a tool that is particularly privacy-friendly. To protect your privacy, all IP addresses are anonymized at the time of data collection, so that they can’t be traced back to a specific person. Therefore, the information collected is part of anonymous statistics and not personal data in the sense of data protection laws. The anonymized visitor information is stored on our server in Germany (unlike with Google Analytics, for example) and will be processed only by us.
