Statistical evaluation of the use of our website
For our company it is of great economic importance that we can statistically evaluate the use of our website by our visitors. It’s not about evaluating an individual’s behavior. Rather, it is about overarching statistical aspects: On which page do visitors “enter” our site? How many clicks does an average visitor make? Please rest assured that these statistics are in no way personal. These statistics are of great importance to our company and we consider this to be a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1f) GDPR. If you want to contradict this, we will gladly offer you an “opt-out” option.
