What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and that store certain settings and data required for exchanging information with our website via your browser. Basically, there are two different types of cookies: so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser; and permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage makes it easier for you to use our website, for example by saving certain entries you have made so that you do not have to enter then again.
What data is stored in the cookies?
Only pseudonymous data is stored in the cookies used by Würth International. When cookies are activated, an identification number is assigned to them; your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar data, which would enable the cookie to be directly matched to you, will not be stored in the cookie.
The legal basis for the use is Article 6 (1) f (lawfulness of processing), because there is a legitimate interest to protect this website from bots and spam software.
What is reCAPTCHA?
Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?
We only want to welcome flesh and blood people to our site. Bots or spam software of any kind can safely stay at home. That’s why we pull out all the stops to protect ourselves and offer the best possible user experience for you. For this reason, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. This way we can be pretty sure that we remain a “bot-free” website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google, which Google uses to determine whether you are actually a human being. reCAPTCHA therefore serves the security of our website and, by extension, your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA it could happen that a bot registers as many email addresses as possible during registration in order to “spam” forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.
What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?
ReCAPTCHA collects personal data from users in order to determine whether the actions on our website really originate from people. This means that the IP address and other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service may be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data ends up on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with other data from Google unless you are logged in with your Google account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube. Gmail, etc.) are already placed on your browser. Then, reCAPTCHA places an additional cookie on your browser and collects a snapshot of your browser window.
The following list of collected browser and user data, does not claim to be exhaustive. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.
- Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor came)
- IP address (e.g. 222.214.171.124)
- Information about the operating system (the software that enables your computer to operate. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
- Cookies (small text files that store data in your browser)
- Mouse and keyboard behaviour (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is stored)
- Date and language settings (which language or date you have preset on your PC is saved)
- Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image display consists of)
