Our website uses the open-source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the browsing behavior of our users. We thereby analyze use of our website and try to constantly improve the information we offer. The Matomo software saves a cookie to the user’s computer. The following data is saved when individual pages of our website are accessed:

– Two bytes of the IP address of the accessing user system (anonymized IP address)

– The website accessed

– The website from which the user accesses the requested page (referrer)

– The sub-pages accessed from the website visited

– The time spent on the website

– How often the website is accessed

The software only runs on our website servers. The user’s personal data is only saved to the website server. The data is not shared with third parties.

The software is set so that the IP address is not fully saved, but so that two bytes of the IP address are hidden (e.g.:  192.168.xxx.xxx). That means it is no longer possible to identify the accessing computer using the shortened IP address.

We fundamentally only process personal data about our users insofar as such processing is required for the provision of a functioning website, as well as our content and services. Under normal circumstances, we only process personal data about our users with their consent. An exception is made in cases in which prior consent cannot be given for factual reasons and data processing is permissible under the applicable laws.

As the tolino brand website does not include an online shop or customer area, only a very limited amount of data is stored and is largely deleted when the user’s session ends (e.g. so-called session cookies).
