Microsoft Clarity

We use Microsoft Clarity. Microsoft Clarity is a service from Microsoft that performs cross-device and cross-application user analysis based on a pseudonymous user ID. Among other things, your mouse movements, scrolling behavior and clicking behavior are evaluated. This includes the following information about user behavior:

How long do you move or stay with the mouse and at what point?
What paths do you use to move your mouse across the page?
When and where do you click?
How do you scroll the page (speed, pauses, and back and forth movements)?
We also receive a lot of technical information about your device and the browser you use. This includes in particular the device type, the operating system used, the screen resolution, the size of the browser window, any installed browser plug-ins and more.

In addition to data on your behavior and technical information, content-related data is also sometimes evaluated. This is done exclusively with data that cannot be used to identify you personally. Even in combination with other data assigned to you pseudonymously, it is not possible for us to identify you or assign it to your user account on our platform.

Microsoft acts as the controller within the meaning of the GDPR when using Clarity. This means that we transmit the data to Microsoft for further processing on our own responsibility and after this transmission we have no further influence on the processing by Microsoft. The transmission will only take place if you give us your consent. The legal basis for processing is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time without further conditions in our Consent Manager. When granting your consent, please also take into account that parts of the Microsoft Group are based in the USA and therefore access by US investigative authorities to the collected data cannot be excluded. In such a case, you will most likely not have an appropriate opportunity to intervene. In fact, it is very likely that you are not even allowed to find out about such access due to the relevant orders from the authorities. You will therefore probably not be able to claim effective legal protection.

After we have transmitted the data to Microsoft, we delete it. We work exclusively on aggregated statistics that we receive from Microsoft. These always take into account the entirety of all analyzed users. We do not receive data about individual people.

Microsoft Clarity can recognize you (or your browser) across multiple websites and combine the data. This means that the data obtained can also be used by Microsoft for remarketing and retargeting measures. However, Microsoft is responsible for these measures. If you would like to object to this processing, please contact Microsoft.
