By checking a manual entry, this service prevents automated software (so-called bots) from carrying out abusive activities on the website. In accordance with art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f) GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in the protection of our website from misuse as well as in a trouble-free presentation of our online presence that are overriding in the balancing of interests.
