Data collection by using this website
ITS Germany try to refrain collecting and storing personal data and completely by using cookies and external analysis tools such as Google Analytics in accordance with the EU-DSGVO. You can visit our site without providing any personal information. However, for operational reasons and for security analyses to prevent and evaluate any system errors and/or "cyberattacks" on our website, including "server logs", ITS Germany automatically stored data in system for one week.

Anonymized analysis of visitor flows
To analyze the behavior of the users of our website, we use the open source web tracking tool Piwik/Matomo. As alternative to Google Analytics, the data used to track website visitors is processed exclusively internally by us. That means, the data is not shared with or used by third parties, but is only stored on our own server and can be analyzed by us. In this way, we can also guarantee that all data is stored without exception and exclusively on systems in Germany. For anonymization, the last digits of the IP address (the last byte of the IPv4 address) are made unrecognizable. A personal reference of the data is thus safely prevented.
For security reasons, this site offers TLS encryption (Transport Layer Security). You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact, that the address line of the browser begins with https:// and by the lock symbol in the browser line.
