These cookies are used on the www.brewingscience.de website:

Necessary cookies
Necessary cookies help to make a website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies. Therefore it is not possible to deactivate them.

Statistics cookies
Statistic cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.

Preference cookies
Preference cookies allow a website to remember information that affects the way a website behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are located in.

Marketing Cookies
These cookies are used, for example, to specifically address visitors to our websites.

Duration of Data retention
Some of the cookies we use are immediately deleted after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable the website to recognise your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).
You can delete all cookies stored on your device and set most browsers to prevent the storage of cookies.
In that case, you may need to re-adjust some preferences every time you visit a website and some services and functionalities may not work.

Cookie provider
Cookies that are set directly by us are so-called first-party cookies. Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are set by third-party websites, for example when displaying content (advertisements, images, tracking pixels or similar).

Processing is carried out in the context of our legitimate interest in the safety of our website in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 f) GDPR or on the basis of our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our online offer according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.

f. Website analysis and marketing
We use cookies in connection with the following functionalities:

Matomo (self-hosted)
We use cookies from the open source web analysis software Matomo (formerly Piwik) on our website. When you visit our website, cookies store information about your use of the website (including the IP address). We use this stored information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for ourselves, and for the provision of other services related to Internet use and use of the website.
We process the Data received in this manner on the basis of our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our online offer according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.
Please note that this website uses Matomo with the extension "anonymizeIp()". This truncates IP addresses before transmission. A direct personal reference in connection with the stored Data is thus usually excluded. If necessary, we will transfer the stored information to third parties, if required by law.
You can prevent the data collection by activating the Do-Not-Track option in your browser or by objecting to it by mouse click below. If you remove the following check mark, an opt-out cookie will be set for you, which prevents the data collection. Please note that you must set the cookie again if you delete the cookies in your browser....

g. Integration of external content
We use external dynamic content to optimize the presentation and the offer of our website. When visiting the website, a request is automatically made via the API to the server of the respective content provider, in which certain log Data (e.g. the IP address of the users) is transmitted. The dynamic content is then transmitted to our website and displayed there.
We use external content in connection with the following functionalities:

Scimago quality indicator
We have included the Scimagor quality indicator on our website. This is a measure of the scientific influence of journals, citations and articles. The indicator provides you with data for the influence of a content on the scientific discussion. When the quality indicator is retrieved, log data is transferred to the servers of SCImago, a reasearch group of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), University of Granada, Extremadura, Carlos III (Madrid).
The legal basis for the data processing is our overriding legitimate interest in the qualitative data presentation of our online offer and the scientific publications contained therein according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.
