Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
Type and purpose of processing:
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use "Google Web Fonts" from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA;
hereinafter "Google") to display fonts.
The legal basis for the integration of Google Webfonts and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library.
It is theoretically possible - although it is currently unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that the operator collects Google data in this case.
We do not collect any personal data through the integration of Google Webfonts.
Third country transfer:
Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US -Framework.
Preparation mandatory or required:
The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract.
However, it may not be possible to display the content correctly using standard fonts.
Revocation of consent:
The provider currently offers no option for a simple opt-out or blocking of data transmission.
If you want to prevent tracking of your activities on our website,
please revoke your consent for the corresponding cookie category or all technically unnecessary cookies and data transmissions in the cookie consent tool.
In this case, however, you may not be able to use our website or only to a limited extent.
Please note that this can lead to functional restrictions on the website.
Our primary goal is to ensure that our website is as safe and secure as possible for you and for us. To ensure that
we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With reCAPTCHA we can determine
whether you really are a flesh-and-blood human being and not a robot or other spam software. By spam we mean any
electronically, unwanted information sent to us unsolicited. With the classic CAPTCHAS, you usually had to solve text or image puzzles to check them.
With reCAPTCHA from Google, we don't have to bother you with such puzzles most of the time. In most cases it is sufficient if you simply check the box and confirm that
that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version, you don't even have to check the box. How exactly does this work and, above all, which data is used for this,
you will find out in the course of this data protection declaration.
The legal basis for the use is Article 6 (1) f (lawfulness of processing), because there is a legitimate interest in this website
protect against bots and spam software.
What is reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service provided by Google that protects websites from spam software and abuse by non-human visitors.
Most often, this service is used when filling out forms on the Internet. A Captcha service is an automatic Turing test,
to ensure that an action on the Internet is carried out by a human and not by a bot.
In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing), a human determines the difference between a bot and a human.
In the case of captchas, the computer or a software program also takes care of this. Classic captchas work with small tasks,
which are easy for humans to solve, but present considerable difficulties for machines.
With reCAPTCHA you no longer have to actively solve puzzles. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish humans from bots.
Here you only have to tick the text field "I'm not a robot" or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even this is no longer necessary.
The software calculates a so-called Captcha score from these user actions. With this score, Google calculates how high the probability is before entering the Captcha
that you are human. ReCAPTCHA or Captchas in general are always used
if 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 flesh and blood people to our site. Bots or spam software of all kinds can safely stay at home.
That's why we're doing everything we can to protect ourselves and offer you the best possible user experience. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google.
So we can be pretty sure that we remain a "bot-free" website.
By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google, which Google uses
to determine if you are really human. reCAPTCHA therefore serves to ensure the security of our website and subsequently also your security.
For example, without reCAPTCHA it could happen that a bot registers as many email addresses as possible during registration,
to then "spam" forums or blogs with undesirable advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.
What data does reCAPTCHA store?
ReCAPTCHA collects personally identifiable information from users to determine whether the actions on our website are actually human.
The IP address and other data that Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service can therefore be sent to Google.
IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area,
before the data ends up on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with other data from Google,
unless you are logged in with your Google account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks
whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) have already been placed on your browser.
Then reCAPTCHA sets an additional cookie in your browser and captures a snapshot of your browser window.
The following list of collected browser and user data does not claim to be complete. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.
Referrer URL (the address of the page the visitor came from)
You can IP address (e.g. 2220.127.116.11)
You can get information about the operating system (the software that enables your computer to operate. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
You can customize mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)
You can change the date and language settings (which language or which date you have preset on your PC is saved)
You can set screen resolution (indicates how many pixels the image display consists of)
It is undisputed that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click the "I'm not a robot" checkbox.
With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, you don't even have to check the box and the whole recognition process runs in the background.
Google does not tell you exactly how much and what data Google stores.
The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version from Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo.
All of these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies set by Google reCAPTCHA on the demo version: Name: IDE
Expiry time: after one year
Use: This cookie is set by the company DoubleClick (also belongs to Google),
to register and report the actions of a user on the website in dealing with advertisements. In this way, the effectiveness of the advertising can be measured and appropriate optimization measures can be taken.
IDE is stored in browsers under domain doubleclick.net.

Example value: gEAABBCjJMXcI0dSAAAANbqc311161059
Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as experience has shown that Google changes the choice of its cookies again and again.
How long and where is the data stored?
By inserting reCAPTCHA, your data will be transferred to the Google server.
Where exactly this data is stored is not made clear by Google, even after repeated inquiries.
Without having received confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction,
length of stay on the website or language settings are stored on the European or American Google 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 into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plugin, the data will be merged.
The deviating data protection regulations of the company Google apply for this.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
If you do not want any data about you and your behavior to be transmitted to Google, you must, before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software,
Log out completely from Google and delete all Google cookies. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you access our site.
To delete this data again, you must contact Google Support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=311161059.
So if you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its representatives automatically collect, process and use data.
You can learn a little more about reCAPTCHA on Google's web developer page at https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/.
Google goes into the technical development of reCAPTCHA in more detail here,
but you won't find precise information about data storage and data protection-related topics there either.
A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the in-house data protection declaration at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
