Maats B.V. uses so-called session cookies on this website. Session cookies are functional cookies intended to make the website work properly. For the use of session cookies it is not required to first ask the internet user for permission. These cookies contain a different, temporary number each time you visit the website. The session cookies are deleted after closing your browser.
Maats B.V. used the statistics program AWStats to analyze which pages are visited the most, how visitors have come to the Maats B.V. website and which search terms are used in our search engine. To this end, Maats B.V. collects data from its visitors, just like any website. These are stored in so-called log files. Maats B.V. has taken measures to limit the traceability of visitors to the Maats website as much as possible. Maats B.V. does this by throwing away every IP address immediately after importing the log files in AWStats. This happens in a temporary memory before the IP addresses are stored in AWStats.
Maats B.V. collects the following data with the log files:
- user agents (browsers, operating system);
- used search terms to access our website via external search engines;
- used search terms in the search engine on the website itself;
- used links within the website;
- used links to get to our website;
- device information.
AWStats extracts this data from the log files of the web server. These log files remain in the database of AWStats for 90 days. Then they are removed. Only then does an aggregated (merged) log file remain. That gives us an annual report on the website visit.
Maats B.V. keeps your personal data a year in connection with backup. Maats B.V. does not provide personal data to third parties, unless this is necessary to report criminal offenses.
As a general rule, when visiting the Website, no personal data of the visitor is being stored. If you are asked to disclose personal data, which shall be stored, you will be expressly informed about the extent and the purposes of storing your personal data, further you will be informed about who will receive these data.
Furthermore, when visiting the Maats website, some information related to aspects of the electronic data exchange is automatically stored (e. g. your web-browser typ, name of your internet service provider, website from which you visit the Website and probably the IP-code of your computer). This information is exclusively used for statistical purposes.
