5. Analytics and advertising
Our website uses "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA"). The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its site from abusive automated crawling and spam.

Our website uses "Google Web Fonts", a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as: "Google").

This is necessary for your browser to display a visually improved presentation of our texts. If your browser does not support this feature, a default font will be used by your computer. The integration of these web fonts is done by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. The page of our website you have visited will be transmitted to the server. Also, the IP address of the browser of the visitors terminal is stored by Google.
We use Google Web Fonts for optimization purposes to improve the use of our website for you and to make its design more user-friendly.
