Purpose and legal basis

We use Google’s reCAPTCHA service. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source code, which loads the software in the background and analyzes your user behavior. The data is already used and analyzed before you have checked the box “I am not a robot”. Google calculates a score based on the data, which on the one hand serves to understand whether the visitor is a human or whether the entries are abusively made by automated, machine processing (e.g. bots). On the other hand, it also serves to prevent fraudulent mass registrations or Feedbacks, which can lead to risks in the association’s infrastructure. ReCAPTCHA also provides protection for our customers from becoming potential victims of cyber-crime.

legal basis

The legal basis for this processing is therefore our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  • IP address

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

To be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
