Piwik web analytics and user tracking “privacy compliant”
This website uses Piwik in highest compliance with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), for analysing the website traffic and for tracking user actions, such as downloads or links clicked.

Automatically anonymised visitor IPs
By default, Piwik stores any visitors IP address in the database for each new visitor. If a user has a static IP address this means his browsing history could be easily tracked across several days and even across websites tracked within the same Piwik server. To ensure that the visitors IP is not stored, which is Personally Identifiable Information (PII), IP anonymisation is enabled, with at least 2 bytes masked from the IP.

Web analytics opt-out feature (using an iFrame)
Below, visitors can “opt-out” being tracked by the Piwik server. By default, all of the website visitors are tracked, but if you opt-out by clicking on the iframe link, a cookie ‘piwik_ignore’ will be set. All visitors with a piwik_ignore cookie will not be tracked.
