3.2. Tracking user data on a website
This website uses Matomo to analyze user behavior. Cookies collect information about user behavior on the site, including the abbreviated IP address of the device being used, and send it to the server. The server anonymizes the information and stores it for the purpose of analyzing user behavior. The state of current technology ensures that once information has been anonymized, it can no longer be traced back to the originating device or connection. Information produced by cookies is shared only with the internally operated server. It is never shared with third parties. Data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1 e) of the GDPR for the purpose of pursuing the controller’s legitimate interests, in this case to improve the website. You have the right to object to the processing of your user data for the purpose of user behavior analysis. The link below gives you an opportunity to deactivate collection of your user data: opt-out link.
NB: Opt-out cookie: an opt-out cookie is stored on your device to prevent your user data from being collected when you visit this site. For the cookie to be effective, it must be stored on every device you use to visit the site. As the cookie is stored in the browser (the program used to access websites), it must be stored on each browser if you use more than one browser per device (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome or Mozilla Firefox). You should also note that if you delete all cookies, you will also delete the opt-out cookie and will have to reinstall it.
