We use Google ReCaptcha to secure our contact forms to ensure that the user completing the form is a real person and not a computer bot. To achieve this ReCAPTCHA MUST collect personal information from users and set a cookie on the users browser.
So, what personal information does the reCAPTCHA collect? First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm will check to see if there’s a Google cookie placed on the computer being used. Then, an additional reCAPTCHA-specific cookie will be added to the user’s browser, and a complete snapshot of the user’s browser window at that moment in time will be captured, pixel by pixel. All this information is used to make a determination of a real user or computer bot.
To avoid using the reCaptcha service please contact the office directly by phone, post or with a direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The information obtained via the reCAPTCHA service is used in accordance with Google's Usage Terms and Conditions: https://policies.google.com/privacy
