    Privacy policy

    Introduction and overview

    We have written this privacy statement (version 28.05.2021-221145911) to explain to you, in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and applicable national laws, which personal data (data for short) we as the controller – and the processors (e.g. providers) commissioned by us – process, will process in the future and what lawful options you have. The terms used are to be understood as gender-neutral.
    In short, we inform you comprehensively about data we process about you.

    Privacy statements usually sound very technical and use legal terminology. This privacy statement, on the other hand, is intended to describe the most important things to you as simply and transparently as possible. To the extent that it is conducive to transparency, technical terms are explained in a reader-friendly manner, links to further information are provided and graphics are used. In this way, we inform you in clear and simple language that we only process personal data in the course of our business activities if there is a corresponding legal basis. This is certainly not possible by providing the most concise, unclear and legalistic explanations possible, as is often standard practice on the Internet when it comes to data protection. I hope you find the following explanations interesting and informative, and perhaps there is one or two pieces of information that you did not yet know.
    If you still have questions, we would like to ask you to contact the responsible office mentioned below or in the imprint, to follow the existing links and to look at further information on third party sites. Our contact details can of course also be found in the legal notice.


    This data protection declaration applies to all personal data processed by us in the company and to all personal data processed by companies commissioned by us (order processors). By personal data, we mean information such as a person’s name, e-mail address and postal address. The processing of personal data ensures that we can offer and invoice our services and products, whether online or offline. The scope of this privacy policy includes:

    • all online presences (websites, online stores) that we operate
    • social media presences and email communications
    • mobile apps for smartphones and other devices

    In short, the data protection declaration applies to all areas in which personal data is processed in a structured manner within the company.

    Legal basis

    In the following privacy statement, we provide you with transparent information on the legal principles and regulations, i.e. the legal bases of the General Data Protection Regulation, which enable us to process personal data.
    As far as EU law is concerned, we refer to REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016. You can of course read this EU General Data Protection Regulation online on EUR-Lex, the access to EU law, at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32016R0679.

    We only process your data if at least one of the following conditions applies:

    1. Consent (Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO): You have given us your consent to process data for a specific purpose. An example would be the storage of your entered data of a contact form.
    2. Contract (Article 6(1)(b) DSGVO): In order to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual obligations with you, we process your data. For example, if we conclude a purchase contract with you, we need personal information in advance.
    3. Legal obligation (Article 6(1)(c) DSGVO): If we are subject to a legal obligation, we process your data. For example, we are legally obliged to keep invoices for accounting purposes. These usually contain personal data.
    4. Legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO): In the case of legitimate interests that do not restrict your fundamental rights, we reserve the right to process personal data. For example, we need to process certain data in order to operate our website securely and economically efficiently. This processing is therefore a legitimate interest.

    Further conditions such as the performance of recordings in the public interest and the exercise of official authority as well as the protection of vital interests do not generally occur with us. If such a legal basis should be relevant, it will be indicated at the appropriate place.

    In addition to the EU regulation, national laws also apply:

    In addition to the EU regulation, national laws also apply:

    • In Austria, this is the Federal Act on the Protection of Individuals with regard to the Processing of Personal Data (Data Protection Act), or DSG for short.
    • In Germany, the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) applies.

    If other regional or national laws apply, we will inform you about them in the following sections..

    Storage duration

    The fact that we only store personal data for as long as is absolutely necessary for the provision of our services and products applies as a general criterion with us. If it is required by law, for example in the case of accounting, this storage period may also be exceeded. This means that we delete personal data as soon as the reason for data processing no longer exists. Should you wish your data to be deleted or revoke your consent to data processing, the data will be deleted as soon as possible and insofar as there is no obligation to store it.

    We will inform you about the specific duration of the respective data processing below, provided we have further information on this.

    Rights under the General Data Protection Regulation

    According to Article 13 of the GDPR, you have the following rights to ensure fair and transparent processing of data:

    • According to Article 15 of the GDPR, you have the right to know whether we process data about you. If this is the case, you have the right to receive a copy of the data and the following information:
      • the purpose for which we carry out the processing;
      • the categories, i.e. the types of data that are processed;
      • who receives this data and, if the data is transferred to third countries, how security can be guaranteed;
      • how long the data will be stored;
      • the existence of the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing and the right to object to processing;
      • that you can complain to a supervisory authority (links to these authorities can be found below);
      • the origin of the data if we have not collected it from you;
      • whether profiling is carried out, i.e. whether data is automatically evaluated in order to arrive at a personal profile of you.
    • You have a right to rectify data according to Article 16 of the GDPR, which means that we must correct data if you find errors.
    • According to Article 17 of the GDPR, you have the right to erasure („right to be forgotten“), which specifically means that you may request the deletion of your data.
    • According to Article 18 of the GDPR, you have the right to restriction of processing, which means that we may only store the data but not use it any further.
    • According to Article 19 DSGVO, you have the right to data portability, which means that we will provide you with your data in a common format upon request.
    • According to Article 21 of the GDPR, you have a right to object, which, once enforced, entails a change in processing.
      • If the processing of your data is based on Article 6(1)(e) (public interest, exercise of official authority) or Article 6(1)(f) (legitimate interest), you may object to the processing. We will then check as soon as possible whether we can legally comply with this objection.
      • If data is used to conduct direct marketing, you may object to this type of data processing at any time. We may not use your data for direct marketing thereafter.
      • If data is used to perform profiling, you can object to this type of data processing at any time. We may not use your data for profiling thereafter.
    • According to Article 22 of the GDPR, you may have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (for example, profiling).

    If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. For Austria, this is the data protection authority, whose website can be found at https://www.dsb.gv.at/, and for Germany you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).

    In short: You have rights – do not hesitate to contact the responsible body listed above with us!

    Data processing security

    To protect personal data, we have implemented both technical and organizational measures. Where possible, we encrypt or pseudonymize personal data. In this way, we make it as difficult as possible, within the scope of our possibilities, for third parties to infer personal information from our data.

    Article 25 of the GDPR refers to „data protection by technical design and by data protection-friendly default settings“ and thus means that both software (e.g., forms) and hardware (e.g., access to the server room) should always be designed with security in mind and that appropriate measures should be taken. If necessary, we will go into more detail on specific measures below.

    TLS encryption with https

    TLS, encryption and https sound very technical and they are. We use HTTPS (the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure stands for „secure hypertext transfer protocol“) to transfer data over the internet in a tap-proof way.
    This means that the complete transmission of all data from your browser to our web server is secured – no one can „listen in“.

    In this way, we have introduced an additional layer of security and fulfill data protection by design of technology Article 25(1) DSGVO. By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data.
    You can recognize the use of this protection of data transmission by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser, to the left of the Internet address (e.g., beispielseite.de) and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.If you want to know more about encryption, we recommend the Google search for „Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure wiki“ to get good links to further information.

    Web hosting

    Web hosting summary
    👥 Data subjects: Visitors to the website
    🤝 Purpose: professional hosting of the website and securing its operation
    📓 Processed data: IP address, time of website visit, browser used and other data. More details can be found below or at the respective web hosting provider used.
    📅 Storage period: depending on the provider, but usually 2 weeks
    ⚖️ Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests)

    What is web hosting?

    When you visit websites nowadays, certain information – including personal data – is automatically created and stored, including on this website. This data should be processed as sparingly as possible and only with justification. By the way, by website we mean the entirety of all web pages on a domain, i.e. everything from the home page (homepage) to the very last subpage (like this one). By domain, we mean, for example, example.de or sampleexample.com.

    If you want to view a website on a screen, you use a program called a web browser to do it. You probably know some web browsers by name: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari.

    This web browser needs to connect to another computer where the website’s code is stored: the web server. Running a web server is a complicated and costly task, which is why this is usually done by professional providers, the providers. These offer web hosting and thus ensure reliable and error-free storage of website data.

    When the browser on your computer (desktop, laptop, smartphone) connects and during data transfer to and from the web server, personal data may be processed. On the one hand, your computer stores data, and on the other hand, the web server must also store data for a while to ensure proper operation.

    Why do we process personal data?

    The purposes of data processing are:

    1. Professional hosting of the website and securing its operation
    2. For reasons of operational security and to compile access statistics

    What data is processed?

    Even while you are visiting our website right now, our web server, which is the computer on which this website is stored, usually automatically stores data such as

    • the complete Internet address (URL) of the accessed website (e.g. https://www.beispielwebsite.de/beispielunterseite.html?tid=221145911)
    • Browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)
    • the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10)
    • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL) (e.g. https://www.beispielquellsite.de/vondabinichgekommen.html/)
    • the hostname and IP address of the device being accessed from (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and
    • Date and time
    • in files, the so-called web server log files

    How long is data stored?

    As a rule, the above data is stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed by authorities in the event of unlawful conduct.

    In short, your visit is logged by our provider (company that runs our website on special computers (servers)), but we do not share your information without consent!

    Legal basis

    The lawfulness of the processing of personal data in the context of web hosting results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (protection of legitimate interests), because the use of professional hosting with a provider is necessary to be able to present the company on the Internet in a secure and user-friendly manner.


    Cookies summary
    👥 Data subjects: Visitors to the website
    🤝 Purpose: depends on the cookie. You can find more details below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.
    📓 Data processed: Depending on the cookie used in each case. You can find more details below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.
    📅 Storage duration: depending on the cookie, can vary from hours to years
    ⚖️ Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (Consent), Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests).

    What are cookies?

    Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
    Below we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following privacy policy.

    Whenever you browse the Internet, you use a browser. Popular browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

    One thing can’t be denied: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are other cookies for other applications. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by our website. These cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder, effectively the „brain“ of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

    Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser transmits the „user-related“ information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our site knows who you are and offers you the setting you are used to. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.

    There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. Also, the expiration time of a cookie varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other „pests“. Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.

    For example, cookie data may look like this

    Name: _ga
    Wert: GA1.2.1326744211.152221145911-9
    Purpose: to distinguish website visitors
    Expiration date: after 2 years

    A browser should be able to support these minimum sizes

    • At least 4096 bytes per cookie
    • At least 50 cookies per domain
    • At least 3000 cookies in total

    What are the types of cookies?

    The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the privacy policy. At this point, we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

    We can distinguish 4 types of cookies:

    Essential cookies.
    These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user adds a product to the shopping cart, then continues browsing on other pages, and only later goes to the checkout. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart even if the user closes his browser window.

    Purpose cookies
    These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies are also used to measure the loading time and the behavior of the website with different browsers.

    Target-oriented cookies
    These cookies provide a better user experience. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are stored.

    Advertising cookies
    These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to deliver customized advertising to the user. This can be very convenient, but also very annoying.

    Usually, when you visit a website for the first time, you are asked which of these cookie types you want to allow. And of course, this decision is also stored in a cookie.

    If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265, the Request for Comments from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called „HTTP State Management Mechanism“.

    Purpose of processing via cookies

    The purpose ultimately depends on the cookie in question. You can find more details about this below or from the manufacturer of the software that sets the cookie.

    What data is processed?

    Cookies are small helpers for many different tasks. Unfortunately, it is not possible to generalize what data is stored in cookies, but we will inform you about the processed or stored data in the following privacy policy.

    Cookies storage duration

    The storage period depends on the particular cookie and is specified further below. Some cookies are deleted after less than an hour, others can remain stored on a computer for several years.

    Right to object – how can I delete cookies?

    How and whether you want to use cookies, you decide. Regardless of which service or website the cookies come from, you always have the option to delete, disable or only partially allow cookies. For example, you can block third-party cookies but allow all other cookies.

    If you want to determine which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

    Chrome: Delete, enable and manage cookies in Chrome.

    Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari.

    Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer

    Internet Explorer: delete and manage cookies

    Microsoft Edge: delete and manage cookies

    If you do not want to have cookies in principle, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow the cookie or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google using the search term „delete cookies Chrome“ or „disable cookies Chrome“ in the case of a Chrome browser.

    Legal basis

    The so-called „Cookie Guidelines“ have been in place since 2009. These state that the storage of cookies requires your consent (Article 6 (1) a DSGVO). Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these directives. In Austria, however, this directive was implemented in Section 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG). In Germany, the Cookie Directives were not implemented as national law. Instead, the implementation of this directive took place largely in § 15 para.3 of the Telemediengesetz (TMG).

    For absolutely necessary cookies, where there is no consent, there are legitimate interests (Article 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), which in most cases are of an economic nature. We want to provide visitors to the website with a pleasant user experience and cookies are often absolutely necessary for this.

    In the following sections, you will be informed in more detail about the use of cookies, if deployed software uses cookies.

    Google Fonts Local Privacy Policy

    On our website we use Google Fonts of the company Google Inc. For the European area the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible. We have embedded the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server – not on Google’s servers. This means that there is no connection to Google servers and thus no data transfer or storage.

    What are Google Fonts?

    Google Fonts used to be called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory of over 800 fonts that Google provides for free. With Google Fonts, you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. However, in order to prevent any information transfer to Google servers in this regard, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. This way we act privacy compliant and do not send any data to Google Fonts.

    For the use of Google Fonts you do not have to log in or provide a password. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you do not need to worry that your Google account information, while using Google Fonts, will be transmitted to Google. Google records the usage of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. We will take a detailed look at exactly what the data storage looks like.

    Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory of over 800 fonts that Google makes available to your users for free.

    Many of these fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.

    Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

    With Google Fonts, we can use fonts on our own website, and not have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important component to keep the quality of our website high. All Google Fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves data volume and is a big advantage especially for mobile use. When you visit our site, the low file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can sometimes visually distort texts or entire web pages. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all major browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So, we use the Google Fonts to make all our online service as beautiful and consistent as possible.

    What data is stored by Google?

    When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. Through this external call, data is transmitted to the Google servers. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API is designed to reduce the use, storage, and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for proper font delivery. API, by the way, stands for „Application Programming Interface“ and is used, among other things, as a data transmitter in software.

    Google Fonts stores CSS and font requests securely at Google and is thus protected. Through the collected usage figures, Google can determine how well the individual fonts are received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. In addition, Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites are using Google fonts. This data is published to the Google Fonts BigQuery database. Entrepreneurs and developers use Google’s BigQuery web service to be able to examine and move large amounts of data.

    However, it is still important to remember that each Google Font request also automatically transmits information such as language settings, IP address, browser version, browser screen resolution, and browser name to Google’s servers. Whether this data is also stored cannot be clearly determined or is not clearly communicated by Google.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use fonts with the help of a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a format template that can be used to easily and quickly change the design or font of a website, for example.

    The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google thus pursues the goal of fundamentally improving the loading time of web pages. If millions of web pages refer to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other web pages visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    The data that Google stores for one day or one year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. In order to delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=221145911. Data storage you prevent in this case only if you do not visit our site.

    Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we can have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other issues at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=221145911. Google does address privacy-related issues there, but it doesn’t really include detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really precise information from Google about stored data.

    Legal basis

    If you have consented to Google Fonts being used, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as it may occur during the collection by Google Fonts.

    From our side, there is also a legitimate interest in using Google Font to optimize our online service. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests).

    You can also find out which data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

    What is Font Awesome?

    We use Font Awesome from the American company Fonticons (307 S. Main St., Suite 202, Bentonville, AR 72712, USA) on our website. When you visit one of our websites, the Font Awesome web font (specifically icons) is loaded via the Font Awesome Content Delivery Network (CDN). This way, the texts or fonts and icons are displayed appropriately on each device. In this privacy statement, we go into more detail about the data storage and data processing by this service.

    Icons play an increasingly important role for websites. Font Awesome is a web font designed specifically for web designers and web developers. With Font Awesome, for example, icons can be scaled and colored as desired using the CSS stylesheet language. In this way, they replace old image icons. Font Awesome CDN is the easiest way to upload the icons or fonts to your website. For this, we just had to add a small line of code to our website.

    Why do we use Font Awesome on our website?

    Font Awesome allows content on our website to be presented in a better way. This makes it easier for you to navigate our website and grasp the content. With the icons you can even sometimes replace whole words and save space. That’s especially handy when we optimize content specifically for smartphones.  These icons are inserted as HMTL code instead of an image. This allows us to edit the icons with CSS exactly as we want. At the same time, we also improve our loading speed with Font Awesome because it’s only HTML elements and not icon images. All these advantages help us to make the website even clearer, fresher and faster for you.

    What data is stored by Font Awesome?

    Font Awesome Content Delivery Network (CDN) is used to load icons and symbols. CDNs are networks of servers that are distributed around the world, making it possible to quickly load files from nearby locations. Thus, as soon as you access one of our pages, the corresponding icons are also provided by Font Awesome.

    In order for the web fonts to load, your browser must connect to the servers of Fonticons, Inc. In the process, your IP address is recognized. Font Awesome also collects data about which icon files are downloaded and when. Furthermore, technical data such as your browser version, screen resolution or the time of the page accessed is also transmitted.

    These data are collected and stored for the following reasons:

    • to optimize content delivery networks
    • to detect and correct technical errors
    • to protect CDNs from misuse and attacks
    • to be able to calculate charges from Font Awesome Pro customers
    • to know the popularity of icons
    • to know which computer and software you are using

    If your browser does not allow web fonts, a default font of your PC will be used automatically. As far as we know at the moment, no cookies are set. We are in contact with Font Awesome’s privacy department and will let you know as soon as we learn more.

    How long and where is the data stored?

    Font Awesome stores data about Content Delivery Network usage on servers also located in the United States of America. However, the CDN servers are located around the world and store user data wherever you are. In identifiable form, the data is usually stored for only a few weeks. Aggregated statistics about usage from the CDNs may be stored longer. Personal data is not included here.

    How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

    Font Awesome does not, to the best of our knowledge, store any personal data about content delivery networks. Unfortunately, if you do not want data to be stored about the icons you use, you will not be able to visit our website. If your browser does not allow web fonts, no data will be transmitted or stored. In this case, the default font of your computer will simply be used.

    Legal basis

    If you have consented to Font Awesome being used, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as it may occur during the collection by Font Awesome.

    From our side, there is also a legitimate interest in using Font Awesome to optimize our online service. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests).

    If you would like to learn more about Font Awesome and how they handle data, we recommend that you read the privacy policy at https://fontawesome.com/privacy and the help page at https://fontawesome.com/help.

    Google reCAPTCHA Privacy Policy

    Google reCAPTCHA Privacy Policy Summary
    👥 Data subjects: Visitors to the website
    🤝 Purpose: Optimization of our service performance and protection against cyber attacks.
    📓 Data Processed: Data such as IP address, browser information, your operating system, limited location and usage data.
    You can find more details below in this Privacy Policy.
    📅 Storage duration: depending on the stored data
    ⚖️ Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interests)

    What is reCAPTCHA?

    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 of the company Google Inc. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood human being and not a robot or other spam software. By spam we mean any unsolicited information sent to us electronically. With the classic CAPTCHAS, you usually had to solve text or image puzzles to verify the information. With reCAPTCHA from Google, we usually don’t have to bother you with such puzzles. Here, in most cases, it is enough to simply check a box to confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version, you don’t even have to set a checkmark anymore. You’ll learn exactly how this works and, more importantly, what data is used to do it later in this privacy policy.

    reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and abuse by non-human visitors. Most commonly, this service is used when you fill out forms on the web. A captcha service is a kind of automatic Turing test, designed to ensure that an action on the Internet is performed by a human and not by a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after computer scientist Alan Turing), a human determines the distinction between a bot and a human. In captchas, the computer or a software program also does this. Classic captchas work with small tasks that are easy for humans to solve, but present significant 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 need to check the „I am not a robot“ text box, or with Invisible reCAPTCHA, even that is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is included 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 even before the captcha is entered how likely you are to be a human. 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 flesh and blood people on our site. Bots or spam software of any kind can safely stay at home. That’s why we pull out all the stops to protect ourselves and offer the best possible user experience for you. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. This way we can be pretty sure that we remain a „bot-free“ website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google to determine whether you are actually human. reCAPTCHA is therefore used to ensure the security of our website and, by extension, 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.

    What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?

    reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users to determine whether the actions on our website really come from people. Thus, the IP address and other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service may be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other contracting states to 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.) are already placed on your browser. Then, reCAPTCHA places an additional cookie on your browser and collects a snapshot of your browser window.

    The following list of collected browser and user data, does not claim to be exhaustive. Rather, it is examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.

    • Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor comes)
    • IP address (e.g.
    • Info about the operating system (the software that allows your computer to run. 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 saved)
    • Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC will be saved)
    • 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 display consists of)

    It is undisputed that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click the „I am not a robot“ checkbox. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, even the ticking is omitted and the whole recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly, Google does not tell you in detail.

    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 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
    Value: WqTUmlnmv_qXyi_DGNPLESKnRNrpgXoy1K-pAZtAkMbHI-221145911-8
    Purpose: This cookie is set by the DoubleClick company (also owned by Google) to register and report a user’s actions on the website in dealing with advertisements. In this way, advertising effectiveness can be measured and appropriate optimization measures can be taken. IDE is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net.
    Expiration date: after one year

    Name: 1P_JAR
    Value: 2019-5-14-12
    Purpose: This cookie collects statistics about website usage and measures conversions. For example, a conversion occurs when a user becomes a buyer. The cookie is also used to display relevant advertisements to users. Furthermore, the cookie can be used to prevent a user from seeing the same ad more than once.
    Expiration date: after one month

    Name: ANID
    Value: U7j1v3dZa2211459110xgZFmiqWppRWKOr
    Purpose: We could not find out much info about this cookie. Google’s privacy policy mentions the cookie in the context of „advertising cookies“ such as „DSID“, „FLC“, „AID“, „TAID“. ANID is stored under domain google.com.
    Expiration date: after 9 months

    Name: CONSENT
    Value: YES+AT.en+20150628-20-0
    Purpose: The cookie stores the status of a user’s consent to use various services from Google. CONSENT is also used for security purposes to verify users, prevent credential fraud, and protect user data from unauthorized attacks.

    Name: NID
    Value: 0WmuWqy221145911zILzqV_nmt3sDXwPeM5Q
    Purpose: NID is used by Google to customize ads to your Google searches. With the help of the cookie, Google „remembers“ your most typed search queries or your previous interaction with ads. This way you will always get tailored ads. The cookie contains a unique ID to collect personal settings of the user for advertising purposes.
    Expiration date: after 6 months

    Name: DV
    Value: gEAABBCjJMXcI0dSAAAANbqc221145911-4
    Purpose: Once you have checked the „I am not a robot“ box, this cookie will be set. The cookie is used by Google Analytics for personalized advertising. DV collects information in anonymous form and is further used to make user distinctions.
    Expiration date: after 10 minutes

    Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as Google’s experience shows that it changes the choice of its cookies time and again.

    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, Google does not make clear, even after repeated inquiries. 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 into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The deviating data protection provisions of the Google company apply to 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 log out of Google completely and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. Basically, as soon as you visit our site, the data is automatically transmitted to Google. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=221145911.

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

    Please note that when you use this tool, data about you may be stored and processed outside the EU. Most third countries (including the USA) are not considered secure under current European data protection law. Data to insecure third countries may therefore not simply be transferred, stored and processed there unless there are suitable safeguards (such as EU standard contractual clauses) between us and the non-European service provider.

    Legal basis

    If you have consented to Google reCAPTCHA being used, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as it may occur during the collection by Google reCAPTCHA.

    From our side, there is also a legitimate interest in using Google reCAPTCHA to optimize our online service and make it more secure. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests).

    You can learn a little more about reCAPTCHA on Google’s web developer page at https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/. Google does go into more detail here about the technical development of reCAPTCHA, but you will search in vain for precise information about data storage and privacy-related topics there as well. A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the in-house privacy policy at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
