Use of Matomo

This website uses Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open source software for the statistical analysis of visitor access. InnoCraft Ltd., located at 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington in New Zealand, is the provider of the Matomo software.

Matomo uses cookies that you enable in order to analyse the use of the website. The information produced through the cookie about your use of the internet services is stored on a server in Germany. We have configured Matomo such that there is no profiling.

The IP address will be made anonymous immediately after processing and before storing by removing the last 2 bytes. You have the option to block the installation of the cookies by changing your browser settings. We would like to advise you, however, that changing your settings in this way may limit the functionality of the website.

More information about privacy settings in the Matomo software can be found in the following link:

Processors are the likely recipients of any data.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our collection purposes. In our case, this will happen automatically after 6 months.

There are three ways you can refuse consent to data processing through Matomo:
The first is that you can completely prevent the storage of cookies in your browser. This may disable some functions of our website that require identification. Second, you can enable the “do not track” setting in your browser. We have configured Matomo to respect this setting. Finally, with a mouse click you can select the so-called opt-out cookie, which is valid for two years. The consequence here is that Matomo will not register your next visits. Please note that the opt-out cookie will be deleted when you delete all cookies.
