9.      Use of Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

(1)   We also use Google Adwords Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the advertisement and was redirected to this page.

10.  Use of  Friendly Captcha

We use the "Friendly Captcha" service on our website ( This service is provided by Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Woerthsee, Germany. Friendly Captcha is a new type of privacy-friendly security solution to make it increasingly difficult for automated programs and scripts (so-called "bots") to use our website. For this purpose, we have integrated a program code from Friendly Captcha into our website (e.g. for contact forms) so that the visitor's end device can establish a connection to Friendly Captcha's servers in order to receive a computational task from Friendly Captcha. The visitor's end device solves the computational task, which requires certain system resources, and sends the computational results to our web server. Our server contacts the Friendly Captcha server via an API and receives a response stating whether the puzzle was solved correctly by the end device. Depending on the result, we can apply security rules to requests via our website and thus, for example, further process or reject them. The data is used exclusively for the protection against spam and bots as described above. Friendly Captcha does not set or read cookies on the visitor's end device. IP addresses are only stored in hashed (one-way encrypted) form and do not allow us and Friendly Captcha to draw any conclusions about an individual person. If personal data is stored, this data will be deleted after 30 days. The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in protecting our website against abusive access by bots, i.e. spam protection and protection against attacks (e.g. mass requests). Further information on data protection when using Friendly Captcha can be found at


11.  Use of YouTube

This is summarized data that shows how users interact with the page. For example, this enables EJOT to gain knowledge of the profiles of the users in order to provide them with more relevant content and to be able to develop functions that could be of greater interest to them.


(6)   With the help of the page insights, EJOT can anonymously evaluate the reach, the page views, the length of time spent on video posts, the actions (likes, comments, sharing of posts) as well as age, gender and location (as stated by the users in their respective Instagram profiles).
