On some pages we use the web analysis service Hotjar of Hotjar Ltd. Hotjar Ltd is a European company based in Malta (Hotjar Ltd, Level 2, St Julians Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta, Europe tel.: +1 (855) 464-6788).
With this tool, movements on the websites on which Hotjar is used can be tracked (so-called heat maps). This makes it possible to see how far users scroll and which buttons they click on. The tools also make it possible to obtain feedback directly from users on or about the website. This provides us with valuable information to improve the design of the website.
The website operator pays special attention to the protection of your personal data when using this tool. For example, we can only track which buttons are clicked, mouse history, how far scrolled, device screen size, device type and browser information, geographic location (country only) and preferred language to display our website. Areas of the websites where personally identifiable information about you or third parties is displayed are automatically hidden by Hotjar and are therefore not trackable at any time.
Hotjar offers every user the option of using a “Do Not Track header” to prevent the use of the Hotjar tool so that no data is recorded about the visit to the respective website. This is a setting that is supported by all common browsers in current versions. To do this, your browser sends a request to Hotjar with the information to deactivate the tracking of the respective user. If you use sipgate websites with different browsers/computers, you must set up the “Do Not Track Header” separately for each of these browsers/computers.
Detailed instructions with information about your browser can be found at: https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out.
