Google Tag Manager

We use the service called Google Tag Manager from Google. “Google” is a group of companies and consists of the companies Google Ireland Ltd. (Service Provider), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as well as Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA and other affiliated companies of Google LLC.

Third country transfer
The European Commission adopted its adequacy decision for the USA on July 10, 2023. Google LLC is certified according to the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we also have this with the provider EU standard contractual clauses completed.

Google Tag Manager is an auxiliary service and only processes personal data for technically necessary purposes. Google Tag Manager ensures that other components are loaded, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. 

You can find more information about Google Tag Manager in the Google privacy policy. 

Please note that due to American laws such as the Cloud Act, American authorities, such as secret services, may have access to personal data, which when integrating this service is necessarily based on the Internet Protocol (TCP) can be exchanged with Google.

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 from Google Inc. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. With reCAPTCHA we can determine if you really are a real human being and not a robot or other spam software.

We understand spam to mean any unwanted information that is sent to us electronically, 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 tick the box and confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version, you don't even have to check the box. You can find out exactly how this works and, above all, what data is used for this in the course of this data protection declaration.

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 a type of automated Turing test designed to ensure that an action on the internet is being performed by a human and not 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 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 have to tick the text field "I'm not a robot" or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even that is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source text and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. The software calculates a so-called Captcha score from these user actions. Google uses this score to calculate the probability that you are a human before entering the Captcha. reCAPTCHA or Captchas in general are always used when bots could manipulate or misuse 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 to determine whether you are really a human being. 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 in order to then "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. 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 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.) are already 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)
  • IP address (e.g.
  • Information about the operating system (the software that enables your computer to operate. 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 which date you have preset on your PC is 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 on the "I'm not a robot" tick. 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 in detail how much and what data Google stores.

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, time spent on the website or language settings on the European or American Google servers are stored. 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.

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. 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 to contact.

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

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

4. Online marketing

4.1 Google Ads (Adwords) with conversion tracking

On our website we use the advertising component Google Ads (Adwords) and so-called conversion tracking. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

We use conversion tracking to specifically advertise our offering. If you have given your consent for this processing, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The legal basis can also be Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

If you click on an ad placed by Google, the conversion tracking we use will store a cookie on your device. These so-called conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally.

If the cookie is still valid and you visit a specific page on our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you clicked on one of our advertisements placed on Google and that you were then redirected to our website.

Using the information collected in this way, Google creates statistics for us about visits to our website. We also receive information about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) and about the pages of our website that were subsequently accessed. However, neither we nor third parties who also use Google Ads will be able to identify you in this way.

You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. At the same time, you can delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the specific Internet browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact the manufacturer or support.

4.2 Google Remarketing or Google’s “Similar Audiences” component

We use the remarketing or “similar target groups” function on our website. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

We use this function to place interest-based, personalized advertising on third-party websites that also participate in Google's advertising network.

If you have given your consent for this processing, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The legal basis can also be Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

In order to enable this advertising service, Google stores a cookie with a sequence of numbers on your device via your Internet browser when you visit our website. This cookie records both your visit and the use of our website in an anonymous form. However, personal data will not be passed on. If you then visit the website of a third party who also uses Google's advertising network, advertisements may appear that are related to our website or our offers there.

To permanently deactivate this function, Google offers the following for the most common Internet browsers

a browser plugin.

The use of cookies from certain providers can also be used, for example

5. Other Services

5.1 YouTube

We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”.

We use YouTube in connection with the “Extended data protection mode” function to be able to show you videos. If you have given your consent for this processing, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The legal basis can also be Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the “Extended Data Protection Mode” function means that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you actually start a video.

Without this “extended data protection” a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you access one of our websites on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least collect and process your IP address, the date and time and the website you visited. A connection is also established to Google’s “DoubleClick” advertising network.

If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.

For the purpose of functionality and to analyze usage behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your device via your Internet browser. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the storage of cookies by setting your Internet browser. You can find more information about this under “Cookies” above.
