Use of reCAPTCHA
We use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google to protect your submissions via internet submission forms on this site. By using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out below.
This plugin checks if you are a person in order to prevent certain website functions from being used by such spam bots. This plugin query includes the sending of your IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the Google reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose your input will be communicated to and used by Google. However, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate how you use this service. The IP address provided by reCaptcha from your browser shall not be merged with any other data from Google.
