5. Analytics and advertising
Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized before it is stored.
Matomo cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
The storage of Matomo cookies is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website will not be disclosed to third parties.

In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser to prevent Matomo from storing your usage data. If you delete your cookies, this will mean that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted.

Auf unserer Internetseite wird den Benutzern die Möglichkeit eingeräumt, einen oder mehrere Newsletter zu abonnieren. Als Newslettersystem wird das System kulturkurier.de der data kulturlink ag (Berlin) verwendet. Hierbei wird zur rechtssicheren und datenschutzkonformen Gestaltung das sog. double-optin Verfahren eingesetzt. Hierbei erhält der potentielle Empfänger zunächst eine E-Mail mit einem Bestätigungslink. Erst nach erfolgter Bestätigung wird die Adresse in den Verteiler aufgenommen. Die Einwilligung in die Speicherung Ihrer Daten sowie die Nutzung Ihrer Adresse für den Versand können Sie über den „Abmelden Link“ am Ende jedes Newsletters widerrufen. Weitere Informationen finden Sie hier: http://hilfe.kulturkurier.de/kulturnewsletter/ Welche personenbezogenen Daten bei der Bestellung des Newsletters an den für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen übermittelt werden, ergibt sich aus der hierzu verwendeten Eingabemaske. Bei der Anmeldung zum Newsletter speichern wir ferner die vom Internet-Service-Provider (ISP) vergebene IP-Adresse des von der betroffenen Person zum Zeitpunkt der Anmeldung verwendeten Computersystems sowie das Datum und die Uhrzeit der Anmeldung. Die Erhebung dieser Daten ist erforderlich, um den (möglichen) Missbrauch der E-Mail-Adresse einer betroffenen Person zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt nachvollziehen zu können und dient deshalb der rechtlichen Absicherung des für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen. Die im Rahmen einer Anmeldung zum Newsletter erhobenen personenbezogenen Daten werden ausschließlich zum Versand unseres Newsletters verwendet. Ferner könnten Abonnenten des Newsletters per E-Mail informiert werden, sofern dies für den Betrieb des Newsletter-Dienstes oder eine diesbezügliche Registrierung erforderlich ist, wie dies im Falle von Änderungen am Newsletterangebot oder bei der Veränderung der technischen Gegebenheiten der Fall sein könnte. Es erfolgt keine Weitergabe der im Rahmen des Newsletter-Dienstes erhobenen personenbezogenen Daten an Dritte. Für das Tracking von Öffnungs- und Klickraten setzen wir im Newsletter (nicht aber in den Systemmails zur An- und Abmelung) sog. tracking codes ein, um das Öffnen der Newsletter und das Aufrufen von Weblinks zu erfassen. Die Erfassung wird dabei in einer pseudoynmisierten Speicherung vorgenommen, indem wir alle persönlichen Daten (z.B. die E-Mail Adresse) durch eine Kennzahl (Pseudonym) ersetzen. Dadurch speichern wir keine persönlichen Daten zusammen mit den Nutzungsdaten wie der Öffnung der Newsletter oder das Aufrufen von Weblinks. Ferner ist sichergestellt, dass eine Zusammenführung dieser Daten auch später nicht erfolgen kann. Wenn Sie als Empfänger diesem pseudoynmisierten tracking widersprechen möchten, können Sie sich über den opt-out link am Ende jedes Newsletters von der Liste austragen.
