The user’s IP address is anonymized before being stored.
Users can object to anonymized data collection by the Matomo program at any time, effective for the future, by clicking on the link below. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser. As a result, Matomo will not collect any more session data. However, if the user deletes its cookies, the result is to also delete the opt-out cookie. Therefore, the user must reactivate it.
The logs with the user’s data will be erased after six months at the latest.
Please insert the Matomo IFRAME with the opt-out cookie here (and enable IP anonymization in the settings area).

In particular, such data can include the users’ IP addresses and location data, which may not be collected without their consent (generally provided through the settings on their mobile devices). The data can be processed in the USA. Additional information can be found in OpenStreetMap’s Data Protection Policy: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.
