We take privacy issues extremely serious. RIDE does not use Google Analytics or any other such external service. We collect access data on our own server only and use Piwik for statistical data gathering and evaluation. If you have activated the ‘DoNotTrack’-feature in your browser, our Piwik setup will not record your visits. You can also opt out of our statistic efforts by clicking here (this will set an opt-out cookie that Piwik looks for in order to determine whether or not access is to be recorded). Of course, all IP addresses are anonymised and the statistical data gathered is solely used by RIDE staff for improving our site.

With one exception, no data whatsoever is passed to external services and no CDNs are used to load external libraries. This exception is the print and pdf creation facility which loads a JS from an external source, which in turn loads several other external sources including material from Google. We have no control over these external scripts.
