2. visitor statistics
In order to maintain and improve this website, I would like to track which pages are actually visited. For this reason, I would like to record user behavior using Matomo Web Analytics. It is an open-source software and the collected data is stored on the own webspace and evaluated exclusively for the improvement of this website. Shortened IP addresses, the called pages and if necessary origin pages and search terms, which led to the finding of this page, are stored. In addition, no data about the other surfing behavior of the visitor is collected. All data is only collected after the user has given his or her consent. If the so-called do-not-track option is preset in the browser default settings, the user behaviour is also not recorded. All recorded data is deleted after ... months. months will be deleted. If you are currently logged by the visitor statistics, you can see here:
3. third party cookies:
It is possible that content from other websites may be integrated on this page, e.g. youtube videos or information banners. It may happen that cookies are set by the other websites. This is deactivated by default on marcvanderpoel.net. However, the external contents are then not visible either.
