To prevent an abusive newsletter subscription by automated requests, we use reCAPTCHA by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) within the registration dialogue. By sending the reCAPTCHA request, various data is transmitted to Google, including your IP address. Google uses this data to detect and prevent abusive requests. We use Google reCAPTCHA only with its anonymisation function, in which the IP address is reduced before Google transmits it within member states of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to Google in the US and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other Google data. The legal basis for transmission to Google is our legitimate interest in protecting our website from misuse through automated requests.
