For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.


The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
