Your privacy is critically important to us and we have a few fundamental principles:
Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.
We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so – for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
We also collect some information automatically:
We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under our Terms of Service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account–for example, in order to enable access to our website on your device or charge you for paid instances; or
(2)The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
(4) We have a legitimate interest in using your information–for example, to provide and update our Services, to communicate with you, to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, and to personalize your experience; or
We do not sell or share our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it–which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information–and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.
For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to tObserver's websites, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to the tObserver website and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites.
This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo for the statistical evaluation of the use of our website by the visitors. We analyze with Matomo, where visitors come from our website, with which terminals (PC, laptop, mobile device) our website is called up, which contents are relevant for you and where there may be problems in the use of our website. We do not conduct a specific observation of our users as identifiable persons. All data including the IP address will be processed anonymously.
The Matomo cookie is stored on the basis of Art. 6 § 1, letter f of GDPR. The responsible authority in charge as a website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both his website and his advertising.
None of the information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is passed on to third parties. You can prevent the storage of the cookie by a corresponding setting in your web browser; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website, because they require an activated cookie usage.
If you do not agree with the storage and use of your data, you can disable the storage and use in the next paragraph. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is deposited in your web browser, which prevents Matomo from saving usage data. Deleting your cookies will result in deletion of the Matomo opt-out cookie as well. The opt-out must be repeated when revisiting our website.
If you have already deactivated the storage and usage, you will see the corresponding information in the next paragraph.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
To enhance the security of your account and data, we encourage you to not provide the real TYPO3 website name or url in the instance settings

If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe. In certain circumstances we may be required by law to retain your personal information, or may need to retain your personal information in order to continue providing a service.
