Privacy and Cookie Policy

The homechargingstations.com website, https://www.homechargingstations.com, uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can. The information below gives you a better understanding of how cookies work and why we use cookies.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, tablet or mobile phone when you browse websites.

Are all cookies the same?

Why we use cookies?

We do not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information (like your name for example). We use the following categories of cookies:

  • Audience measurement cookies (statistics)

We use Google Analytics to help us to understand how our site is being used so that we can improve the user experience. This tool may use cookies to collect anonymous information and generate reports on website usage statistics without individual users being personally identified by Google. To opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites (not just ours), you can visit tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

  • We use Matomo:

This is open-source software with which we can analyze the use of our site. Data such as your IP address, the pages you visit, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the duration of your visit, and the frequency of your visits is processed. We’ve disabled all analytics cookies for all visitors.

The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis and optimization of our website.

We use Matomo with the “Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs” function. This anonymization function truncates your IP address by two bytes so that it is impossible to assign it to you or to the internet connection you are using.

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

How to manage cookies?

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies from any website by modifying the settings in your browser. If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by our website, you can do this through your browser settings.

It’s important to be aware that if you block cookies, many websites will not work properly, hindering your online experience. We don’t recommend turning Cookies off when using our website.
