Your Data Protection Rights
You always have the right to access all personal information I hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may always file a complaint with your national data protection authorities regarding the use of your data. But please tell me first so I have a chance to sort things out.
Generally, I don’t collect any personal information about you on this website. IP addresses, which are a requirement of data transfer between servers on the internet, are not logged on the server.
Secure Data Transfer
This website transmits all data using HTTPS, encrypting all data between the browser and the server. Your network provider may still be able to see that you are loading files from matthiasott.com, but not their content.
Do Not Track Disclosure
I support Do Not Track ("DNT"). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. If you enable Do Not Track, I will for example not collect any anonymous usage statistics with Matomo (see below). You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
Cookies and Other Storage Technologies
Cookies are small files that are stored on the hard disk of a visitor. They allow information to be kept for a certain period of time and to identify the visitor's computer. In order to provide, operate, and maintain this website, I use so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Additionally, certain functional cookies might be used to store information about the state of the system, like for example, if the CSS files are already downloaded and cached in the browser. I do not store any cookies that contain personal information or let me identify you in any other way.
Anonymous Usage Statistics using Matomo
This website uses the first-party open source web analytics platform Matomo (formerly known as Piwik). This service is hosted on my own server, so no visitor data is being transferred to other servers. I use Matomo to measure, collect, analyse and report visitors data for purposes of understanding and optimizing this website. All visitors’ IP addresses are anonymized (removing the last two bytes) and all first party cookies are disabled by default. So no personal data is collected. Visitor logs are automatically deleted after 30 days.

- The amount of time it takes from the web browser downloading the fonts until the fonts are applied

This data does not include any information about the users who are visiting a site serving Typekit fonts.
Webmentions are a mechanism used to notify other websites when you refer to them on your own website. Your server sends a signal to this server, which then verifies that your content indeed links back to this site. By supporting Webmentions on your website, you explicitly signal your wish for linked websites to process and publish your public replies to their content. You can request the removal of one or all webmentions originating from your website at any time.
Processing of incoming Webmentions
Incoming Webmentions are handled as a request to process personal data that you make available by explicitly providing metadata in your website's markup. As an additional measure, all incoming Webmentions on this website undergo a manual assessment that the sender is actively processing Webmentions themselves. Personal data processed includes your name, profile picture from your Website or gravatar.com, the URL of your website, and personal information that you may have included in you post. The processing of incoming Webmentions is based on the legitimate interest to enable interaction with the readers of this website (Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR), following the design intention of the Webmention protocol.
Publishing of incoming Webmentions
Commonly, received webmentions are displayed as comments on a web page. This means that a copy of your content is displayed on the website you link to in your own post. An incoming Webmention request is by design a request for publishing a comment from elsewhere on the web; this is what the protocol was designed for and why it is active on your website. Personal data published includes your name, profile picture from your Website or gravatar.com, the URL of your website, and personal information that you may have included in you post. The publishing of incoming Webmentions is based on the legitimate interest to enable interaction with the readers of this website (Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR), following the design intention of the Webmention protocol.
