Description and purpose
This website uses the service “Friendly Captcha” (www.friendlycaptcha.com). This service is an offer of the provider Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Wörthsee, Germany. Friendly Captcha is a novel, privacy-friendly protection solution to make it more difficult for automated programs and scripts (so-called “bots”) to use this website. In this context, we have integrated a program code from Friendly Captcha into our website (e.g. for contact forms) so that the end device of the visitor can establish a connection to the servers of Friendly Captcha in order to receive a calculation task from Friendly Captcha. The end device of the respective visitor solves the calculation task (puzzle), which takes up certain system resources, and sends the calculation result to our web server. This web server contacts the Friendly Captcha server via an interface and receives as a response whether the puzzle was solved correctly by the end device. Depending on the result, we can apply security rules to requests via our website and thus, for example, process them further or reject them.
Friendly Captcha processes and stores the following data in the process described above:
- Anonymized IP address of the requesting computer.
- Information about the browser used, as well as operating system.
- Anonymized counter per IP address to control the cryptographic tasks.
- Web page from which the access took place.
- The version of the widget.
- A timestamp.
This data is used exclusively for the protection against spam and bots described above. Friendly Captcha does not set or read cookies on the visitor’s device. IP addresses are only stored in hashed (one-way encrypted) form and do not allow us and Friendly Captcha to draw any conclusions about an individual person.
The legal basis for the processing is our overriding legitimate interests in protecting our website from abusive access by bots, hence spam protection and protection against attacks (e.g. mass requests), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
The recipient is Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Wörthsee.
Transmission to third countries
A transfer to a third country does not take place.
Duration of data storage
If personal data is collected, it will be deleted after 30 days at the latest.
