Friendly Captcha

We use Friendly Captcha (hereinafter referred to as "Friendly Captcha") on this website. The provider is Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Woerthsee, Germany.

Friendly Captcha is used to check whether the data input on this website (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program. For this purpose, Friendly Captcha analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. For the analysis, Friendly Captcha evaluates various information (e.g. anonymized IP address, referrer, visit time, etc.). The visitor's end device solves a calculation task, which takes up certain system resources, and sends the calculation result to our web server. This contacts the Friendly Captcha server via an interface and receives a response as to whether the puzzle has been solved correctly by the end device. Depending on the result, we can apply security rules to requests via our website and, for example, process or reject them.

Friendly Captcha does not set or read any cookies on the visitor's end device. IP addresses are only stored in encrypted form and do not allow us or Friendly Captcha to draw any conclusions about an individual person. If personal data is collected, it will be deleted after 30 days at the latest.

The data is stored and analyzed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website from abusive automated spying and SPAM. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG.
