We use the reCAPTCHA service from Google LLC (Google) to protect data sent through this website. This function checks whether a message is being sent by a person, in order to prevent ‘spam bots’ from automatically sending messages or leaving comments, for example. The IP address of a visitor and possibly other data are sent to make Google reCAPTCHA work. The content of a message is sent to and processed by Google for this purpose. The IP address is abbreviated and therefore made anonymous in countries that are part of the EU and states that participate in the treaty for the European economic area. In exceptional cases, an IP address will be fully transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the owner of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other data from Google. Google’s data protection rules apply to the collection of this information. More information about Google’s privacy policy can be found on this page: By using reCAPTCHA you agree that Google will process data about you in the manner and for the purpose as above described.
