Use of reCAPTCHA
In order to protect input forms on our site, we use the service "reCAPTCHA" of the company Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". The use of this service makes it possible to distinguish whether the corresponding input is of human origin or whether it is misused by automated machine processing.
To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behaviour of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and length of stay, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user's input behaviour and mouse movements in the "reCAPTCHA" checkbox area are transmitted to "Google".
Google uses the information obtained in this way to digitise books and other printed matter and to optimise services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).
The IP address transmitted as part of "reCAPTCHA" is not merged with other data from Google unless you are logged into your Google account at the time of using the "reCAPTCHA" plug-in. If you wish to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website by "Google", you must log out of "Google" before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
Use of facebook components
We use components of the provider facebook.com on our page. Facebook is a service of facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
Whenever you visit our website that is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from facebook. Through this process, facebook is informed about which specific page of our website you are currently visiting.
If you call up our page and are logged on to facebook during this time, facebook recognizes which specific page you are visiting through the information collected by the component and assigns this information to your personal account on facebook. For example, if you click on the "Like" button or make corresponding comments, this information is transmitted to your personal user account on facebook and stored there. In addition, the information that you have visited our site is passed on to facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click on the component or not.
An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found at developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
