Google reCAPTCHA Privacy Policy

Our primary goal is to secure and protect our website for you and for us in the best possible way. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA, Version 3 of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood human being and not a robot or other spam software. The use of reCAPTCHTA, version 3 is subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use, which can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de and https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=de
What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and abuse by non-human visitors. This service is most often used when you fill out forms on the Internet. A captcha service is a kind of automatic turing test, which is supposed to ensure that an action on the internet is done by a human and not by a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing) a human being determines the difference between a bot and a human being. With Captchas this is also done by the computer or a software program. Classical Captchas work with small tasks that are easy to solve for humans, but have considerable difficulties for machines. With reCAPTCHA you don’t have to actively solve puzzles anymore. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish humans from bots. With reCAPTCHA a JavaScript element is embedded in the source code and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. From these user actions the software calculates a so-called Captcha score. Google uses this score to calculate the probability that you are a human being even before you enter the captcha. reCAPTCHA or captchas in general are always used when bots could manipulate or abuse certain actions (such as registrations, surveys, etc.).
Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?

We only want to welcome people of flesh and blood on our site. Bots or spam-software of different kinds can stay at home. That’s why we do everything possible to protect ourselves and offer the best possible user-friendliness for you. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from the company Google. So we can be pretty sure that we remain a “bot-free” website. Through the use of reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google to determine whether you are really a human being. reCAPTCHA serves the security of our website and consequently your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA, it could happen that a bot registers as many e-mail addresses as possible during registration in order to “spam” forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.

Which data is stored by reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users to determine whether the actions on our website are really from people. This means that the IP address and other data that Google requires for the reCAPTCHA service can be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data lands on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with any other data held by Google unless you are signed in with your Google Account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) are already placed on your browser. Then reCAPTCHA sets an additional cookie in your browser and takes a snapshot of your browser window.

The following list of collected browser and user data is not complete. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.

Referrer URL (the address of the page the visitor comes from)
IP address (e.g. 256.123.123.1)
Information about the operating system (the software that enables your computer to operate. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)
Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is stored)
Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC is stored)
All Javascript objects (JavaScript is a programming language that allows websites to adapt to the user. JavaScript objects can collect all kinds of data under one name)
Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image consists of)

It is undisputed that Google uses and analyses this data. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, the entire recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly, you will not learn from Google in detail.

The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version of Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo. All these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version

Name: IDE

Expiration date: after 10 minutes

Note: This list cannot claim to be exhaustive, as experience has shown that Google always changes the choice of its cookies.
How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, data is transferred from you to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored is not clearly shown by Google, even after repeated requests. Without having received confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings are stored on Google’s European or American servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged in to your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged, subject to Google’s different privacy policy.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

If you do not want any information about you or your behavior to be sent to Google, you must completely log out of Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=231581324857.

So when you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and their representatives automatically collect, process and use data.

You can learn more about reCAPTCHA on Google’s web development page at https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/. Google will go into more detail about the technical development of reCAPTCHA here, but you will search in vain for precise information about data storage and data protection issues. A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the company’s own privacy policy at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
