6. The Use of Google reCAPTCHA

On our website, we use the plugin “reCAPTCHA”, which is provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We use this plugin for all contact forms we provide on the website to protect the website from spam and abuse. The function of the plugin serves to distinguish whether the data entered in the contact form was entered by a natural person or whether it was misused by a machine and automated processing. By using reCAPTCHA, we can block automated software.

For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behavior of the website visitor on the basis of various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. the IP address, the time the visitor stays on the website or the mouse movements performed by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Visitors to the website are not informed that such an analysis is taking place.

In the course of using the plugin from Google named reCAPTCHA, personal data may also be transferred to the servers of Google in the United States of America. In the event that personal data is transferred to Google based in the USA, Google has certified itself for the data protection agreement “EU-U.S. Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU. A current certificate can be viewed here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

The data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 sect. 1 lit. f DSGVO. TLT-Turbo as website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its own website from spam and misuse.

All downloads are tracked via the analytics and cookies tools stated above. The integration of a PDF download function on this website requires the identification of your IP address in order to allow the function to be operational. This means, your IP address is required for the content to be supplied, displayed and downloaded.

9. Privacy Policy LinkedIn

TLT-Turbo GmbH uses the technical platform and services of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, for the information service offered on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/company/tlt-turbo-gmbh/.

Please note that use of the LinkedIn website and its functions is your own responsibility. This applies specifically to the use of LinkedIn’s interactive functions (e.g. commenting, posting or sharing of content).

When you visit the TLT-Turbo GmbH LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn records, among other things, your IP address and other information that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the LinkedIn pages, with statistical information about the use of the LinkedIn site. LinkedIn provides more information about this at the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=hb_ft_priv.

The data collected about you in this context will be processed by LinkedIn Corporation (located in 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA) and may also be transferred to countries outside the European Union. LinkedIn’s privacy policy describes in general terms what information LinkedIn receives and how it uses it. You will also find information about how to contact LinkedIn and about how to place advertisements. The data use policy is available at the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

LinkedIn’s use of data from visits to LinkedIn sites for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on the LinkedIn site are attributed to individual users, how long LinkedIn stores this data, and whether data from a visit to the LinkedIn site is shared with third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by LinkedIn and is not known to us.

When you access a LinkedIn page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to LinkedIn. According to LinkedIn, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. LinkedIn also stores information about the end devices of its users (e.g. in the context of “registration notification”); if necessary, LinkedIn is thus able to assign IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged on to LinkedIn as a user, a cookie containing your LinkedIn ID is stored on your device. This enables LinkedIn to track that you have visited this site and how you have used it. This also applies to all other LinkedIn pages. Using LinkedIn buttons embedded in websites, LinkedIn is able to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your LinkedIn profile. This data can be used to offer content or advertising tailored to your needs.

If you wish to avoid this, you should log out of LinkedIn or disable the “stay signed in” feature, delete the cookies on your device, and exit and restart your browser. This will delete LinkedIn information that can be used to identify you immediately. This allows you to visit our LinkedIn profile without revealing your LinkedIn identification. When you access interactive features on our profile such as liking, commenting or sharing posts, a LinkedIn login screen will appear. Once you have logged in, LinkedIn will recognize you as a specific user again.

For information on how to manage or delete existing information about you, please visit the following LinkedIn support pages: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

As the provider of the information service, we do not collect and process any further data from your use of our service. You will find the current version of this privacy policy under the “Privacy Policy” section.
