However, data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or information about websites that have been visited also count as personal data.

Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by us if this is permitted by law or if the user has consented to the collection of data.

Making contact

If you contact members of the project consortium, your details will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. After your request has been processed or after the legal obligation or the service used has been fulfilled, the data will be deleted, unless the storage of the data is necessary for the implementation of legitimate interests of the project or due to a legal regulation (e.g. law, ordinance, etc.).


Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific device-related information on your access device (PC, smartphone, etc.). On the one hand, they serve to make websites more user-friendly (e.g. storage of login data). This website only stores cookies that are absolutely necessary for operation:

  • IP number/name of the client computer
  • Date and time of the request
  • requested URL
  • Any error message returned
  • Size of the response in bytes
  • Information about the client browser.

If you do not agree to the storage and analysis of this data, you can object to its storage and use at any time by clicking below. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which means that Matomo will no longer collect any data.
