To Textpraxis applies primarily the Data protection policy of the University of Münster (WWU). Below, you find information specific for this website.
If you leave a comment on our website, your e-mail address and the name you have chosen will also be stored.
Based on your explicit consent, we will send you our newsletter at irregular intervals by e-mail to your specified e-mail address. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address.
In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "double-opt-in" procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, send a confirmation e-mail and record the e-mail address only after calling up a confirmation page. No further data is collected. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for newsletter dispatch at any time. You will find a corresponding link in each newsletter. You can also inform us of your wish to do so via the Contact page.
If you send us inquiries via contact form, your information from the inquiry form and the contact data you provide will be stored by us for processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The websites partly use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and temporarily saved by your browser. They do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. They only serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. The cookies we use are technically necessary and – with the exception of Matomo web analysis, see the following section – are not used for tracking.
Matomo web analysis
Our website uses the open-source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) for analysing the browsing behaviour of our users. The software saves cookies onto the user’s computer (for more on cookies, see above). When the user accesses a page on our website, Matomo saves the following data:
- two bytes of the user’s IP address
- the accessed webpage
- the website from which the user is directed to the accessed page (referrer)
- the sub-pages to which the user is directed from the accessed page
- the length of time the user remains on the page
- the frequency the page is accessed
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. Any storage of the user’s personal data only takes place there. No data is shared with third parties.
The software is configured in such a way that it does not store full IP addresses, but only two bytes of the user’s IP address. This renders it impossible to attribute the abbreviated IP address to the querying computer.
If you do not wish to have your data saved and analysed, you can withdraw your consent on cookie storage and usage with a mouse click at any time. In such cases, Matomo places an “opt-out cookie” onto your browser which prevents it from collecting any data during your visit to our website. Please note: If you choose to delete the cookies in your browser, the opt-out cookie will also be erased, which means you will have to reactivate the opt-out cookie during your next visit.
If you have activated the "Do not track" option in your browser, you do not require an opt-out cookie.
