Evaluation of visits to www​.lentos​.at

To enable us to improve our services on an ongoing basis, session data are stored automatically every time the website is accessed. The data are anonymised before evaluation (access statistic). The goal is to ascertain how often certain pages are accessed and whether crucial information is easily retrievable for users.

Analytics service Matomo

For the analysis of our internet presence we use the analysis service Matomo. This is an open source software tool that we use to analyze and improve our Internet presence. Matomo sets a cookie on your computer and collects, among other things, data about the website from which you came to our website (referrer), the subpages you visit and the duration of your visit to a subpage. These log files are only stored on our server and are not passed on.

    Use of Cookies

    Our website makes use of cookies in order to be able to recognize visitors as they surf our pages. Settings such as the selection of the high contrast option or certain font sizes can thereby be retained across different pages. No sensitive information is stored in the cookies. The cookies are transmitted only to the server that supplies them and they are deleted when the browser is shut down.

    Your Rights

    You are entitled to information, correction, deletion, limitation, data portability, cancellation and objection. Should you come to the conclusion that the processing of your data infringes in any way the right to data privacy or that your entitlement to data protection has in any way been violated, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with the regulatory authority. In Austria the competent authority is the Data Protection Authority (Datenschutzbehörde) (www​.dsb​.gv​.at).
