reCaptcha is a free service from Google that helps protect our websites from spam and abuse by keeping automated software out of our website. It does that by collecting personal information about users, to determine whether they’re humans and not spam bots.
reCaptcha checks to see if the computer or mobile devices has a Google cookie placed on it and valides against it. There is no personal data from our end that is made available to Google. A reCaptcha-specific cookie gets placed on the users’s browser and a complete snapshot of the user’s browser is captured. The timescales for reCaptchas are defined by Google and not the Company.
