USE OF HOTJAR
We use Hotjar, which is essentially a tracking code based web analytics tool provided by Hotjar Ltd, Level 2, St Julians Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta. Using Hotjar, interactions of randomly selected, individual visitors to our website offer are recorded anonymously. This creates a log of, for example, mouse movements and clicks with the aim of identifying potential improvements to our offering. In addition, Hotjar is used to evaluate information on the operating system, browser, incoming and outgoing links, geographical origin, and resolution and type of the end device accessing our website for statistical purposes. In addition, we offer the possibility of anonymous user feedback via Hotjar by means of so-called "feedback pools". The information collected is not personal, is stored by Hotjar Ltd. and is not passed on to other third parties. Additional information on functions and data use by Hotjar can be found at: https://www.hotjar.com/privacy (cf. there in particular the category "Passive Collection").
