Purpose and Legal Basis

We use Google's reCAPTCHA service. With reCaptcha, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source text, which loads the software in the background and analyzes your user behavior. The data is already being used and analyzed before you click the "I'm not robots" checkbox. Google calculates a score based on the data, which is used on the one hand to understand whether the visitor is a human being or whether the entries are made improperly by automated, machine processing (e.g. bots). On the other hand, it also serves to prevent fraudulent mass orders, which can lead to risks in the company's infrastructure. ReCAPTCHA also offers protection for our customers from becoming a potential victim of cyber crime.

legal basis

The legal basis for this processing is therefore our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
