Matomo is a web analysis service and is operated by the DXC Academy on its own servers within the EU. The collected data will therefore not be passed on to 3., but only used by the DXC Academy for internal analysis purposes. This data collection serves the purpose of further improving your experience when using our pages and making it more pleasant. Personal data, such as your IP address, is automatically anonymized by Matomo and only stored in this form.
You have the possibility to stop analyses by Matomo. However, this has the consequence that the site operator cannot receive information through your interactions in order to optimize the user experience of the site later on.
