4. THIRD PARTY COOKIES

In some special cases, as referred in section 3, we use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details which third party cookies you might encounter through this website.

At our website we use several Google services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (“Google”).

Google stores cookies on your terminal when you use Google services via your Internet browser. Here we cannot exclude that Google uses servers in the USA for this purpose. However. According to its own claims, Google uses the information collected to provide the services and to ensure that the services work properly. You can find the terms of use at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google reCaptcha

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (referred to in the following as “reCAPTCHA”) at our website. With reCAPTCHA we check whether certain entries in our contact or newsletter forms are performed by a real person or a computer. With reCaptcha we counter multiple registrations through machines on visitor accounts and newsletters. reCAPTCHA currently offers the best protection against such attacks (bot attacks).

reCAPTCHA analyzes your interactions as soon as you access our website according to the following criteria:

  • IP address of the terminal device used
  • the date and duration of your stay on the website
  • the mouse movements you have made on the reCAPTCHA interfaces as well as the tasks where you are asked to identify images
  • the identification data of the browser and the type of operating system used
  • the Google account, if you are logged in via Google

The data collected during the analysis are forwarded to Google. According to the claims by Google, Google does not use the information collected by reCAPTCHA for personalized advertising.

Google Maps

We also use the services of Google Maps at our website. This enables us to display an interactive map of the location of the Euroflow™ Consortium participants directly at our website and provides you with convenient use of the map function. 

As soon as you click on the navigation of the map embedded at our website, Google Maps opens a new tab. Please note that you are bound to the Additional user conditions for Google Maps/Google Earth including the Google Privacy Policy as soon as you use Google Maps.

Google Fonts

To significantly reduce the loading times at our website, we use fonts (“Google Fonts”) that are loaded from the Google servers (Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) unless you already have these fonts saved in your browser’s cache. Google is responsible for processing your data (IP address) there, which is sent when your browser submits a request. You can find the Google Fonts usage guidelines at https://fonts.google.com/ and the usage guidelines for general data processing by Google at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google LLC. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are saved on your computer and which allow for an analysis of your website use.

The information generated by the cookie about your website use (including your IP address and the URL of the visited website) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will not combine the IP addresses transmitted by your browser in the framework of Google Analytics with other data.
