Use of Google reCaptcha

We use the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google Inc. to protect their orders via internet form. (Google). The query serves to differentiate whether the input is made by a person or abusively by automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. By using reCaptcha you agree that the recognition you have made will be incorporated into the digitisation of old works.

However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google will previously cut your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of reCaptcha is not merged with other Google data. The deviating data protection regulations of the company Google apply to this data.

When you play the videos, the data referred to in Paragraph 2 will be transmitted. We have no control over this transmission of data.

This happens regardless of whether a YouTube user account is logged in or there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be associated directly with your account. If you do not want it to be linked with your YouTube profile, you must log out before clicking the button.
