We use on this website Hotjar Limited (Level 2, St Julian's Business Center, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julian's STJ 1000, Malta) to statistically evaluate visitor data. Hotjar is a service that analyzes the behavior and feedback of users on websites through a combination of analysis and feedback tools. Hotjar-based websites have integrated a tracking code on their websites, which will be transmitted to our servers located in Ireland (EU). This tracking code contacts Hotjar's servers and sends a script to the computer or terminal that accesses the Hotjar-based Web site. The script collects certain data relating to the user's interaction with the corresponding web page. This data is then sent to the servers of Hotjar for processing.
Deactivation of Hotjar
If you do not want Hotjar to collect your data, you can activate the Hotjar Opt Out. There you have the option to disable or re-enable the collection of data by Hotjar by simply clicking the red hotjar button.

What is reCAPTCHA?
Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?
We only want to welcome people of meat and blood on our side. Bots or spam software of various kinds may safely stay at home. That's why we're working hard to protect ourselves and provide the best possible usability for you. That's why we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. So we can be pretty sure that we are staying a "non-bot" website. Using reCAPTCHA transmits data to Google that Google uses to determine if you are truly human. Thus, reCAPTCHA serves the security of our website and consequently also your safety. For example, without reCAPTCHA, when registering, a bot could register as many email addresses as possible, and then "tag" forums or blogs with unwanted advertisements. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.
What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?
ReCAPTCHA collects personally identifiable information from users to determine if the actions on our site are actually human. So it can send the IP address and other data that Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. IP addresses within the member states of the EU or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area are almost always truncated before the data ends up on a server in the United States. The IP address will not be combined with any other Google data unless you are logged in with your Google Account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks if your browser already has Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.). 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 is not exhaustive. Rather, they are examples of data that we understand to be processed by Google.
Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor comes)
IP address (e.g., 218.104.22.168)
About the operating system (the software that enables you to operate your computer, known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)
Mouse and keyboard behavior (any 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)
Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image is made of)
It is indisputable that Google uses and analyzes this data before clicking on the check mark "I am not a robot". With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version even ticking off and the entire recognition process runs in the background. How much and what data Google stores exactly, you will not learn from Google in detail.
The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version of Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo. All these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies Google has set reCAPTCHA on the demo version:
Expiration time: after one year
Use: This cookie is set by the company DoubleClick (also Google) to register and report the actions of a user on the website in the handling of advertisements. Thus, the advertising effectiveness can be measured and appropriate optimization measures are taken. IDE is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net.

Expiration time: after 19 years
Usage: The cookie stores the status of a user's consent to use different
Services provided by Google. CONSENT also provides security to verify users, prevent credential fraud, and protect user data from unauthorized attacks.
Example value: YES + AT.de + 20150628-20-0
Expiration time: after 6 months
Usage: NID is used by Google to tailor advertisements to your Google search. With the help of cookies, Google "remembers" your most-typed searches or your earlier interaction with ads. So you always get customized advertisements. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect the user's personal settings for promotional purposes.
Example value: 0WmuWqy211095756zILzqV_nmt3sDXwPeM5Q
Expiry time: after 10 minutes
Usage: Once you tick the "I'm not a robot" checkbox, this cookie will be set. The cookie is used by Google Analytics for personalized advertising. DV collects information in an anonymous form and is further used to make user distinctions.
Example value: gEAABBCjJMXcI0dSAAAANbqc211095756
Note: This list can not claim to be exhaustive, as experience has shown that Google changes the choice of cookies over and over again.
How long and where is the data stored?
Inserting reCAPTCHA transfers data to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored, Google, even after repeated inquiries, is not clear. Without having received a 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 your browser sends to Google will generally not be merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you're signed in to your Google Account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. For this 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 data to be transmitted to Google about you and about your behavior, you must log out of Google completely and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. Basically, the data will be sent to Google automatically as soon as you visit our page. To delete this information, you must contact Google Support at https://support.google.com/?hl=en&tid=211095756.
So, if you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its agents automatically collect, process and use information.
