3. Use of cookie tracking and analysis tools

In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of specific functions, we use so-called cookies on our website. This involves a standard Internet technology. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. They enable us, inter alia, to store user settings so that our website can be displayed in a format tailored to your device. Several of the cookies we use are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser on your next visit (co-called permanent cookies).

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases. Furthermore, cookies can be deleted afterwards in order to remove data, which the websites have filed on your computer. You can quickly find instructions for this on the Internet. The deactivation of cookies may lead to several restrictions in the functionality of the ACTICO website.

 

3.1 Use of Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so called "cookies", which are text files saved on the computer of the user in order to analyze the usage of the website. The information generated by the Cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operators and to provide additional services associated with the use of the Internet and website. Google may also transfer this information to third parties, provided that this is legally prescribed or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.


Preventing the storage of cookies

You can prevent the cookies from being stored by means of an appropriate setting in your browser software; however, we must point out that in this case not all functions of this website will be available to you in their full capacity. By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google, in the manner and for the purposes set out above.


Objection to data collection

If you do not want Google to receive data from your browser when you access the website, you can find the link to the opt-out solution for Google Analytics here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de , This plugin prevents the browser from requesting the analytics code so that Google does not receive any data when accessing the website. The plugin is only available for Internet Explorer 7 and 8, Firefox 3.x and Chrome. According to Google, the browser blocks the Google Analytics script after installation. You can find more detailed information on terms and conditions of use and data protection at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and at  http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

 

Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated, which contain statements about the age, gender and interests of the website visitors. These data originate from interest-based advertising of Google and from visitor data of third-party providers. These data cannot be allocated to a specific person. You can deactivate these functions at any time in your Google account or generally prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as described in the point “Objection to data collection”.


3.2 Use of Google AdWords

On our website, we use Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). During the course of this, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer (“conversion cookie”), provided that you have reached our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not for personal identification purposes. If you visit certain websites of ours and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can identify that someone has clicked on the advertisement and has been forwarded to our website this way. Every AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have chosen conversion tracking. AdWords customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their advertisement and were forwarded to a website with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information, with which users can be personally identified.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies with an appropriate setting in your browser software (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. You can find more detailed information about terms and conditions of use and data privacy at: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.


3.3 Use of Google Ajax search API

The JavaScript code of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: Google) is downloaded from our website. If you have activated JavaScript in your browser and have not installed a JavaScript blocker, your browser will send personal data to Google, if applicable. We are not aware of which data Google links with the received data and for which purposes Google uses these data. In order to prevent the execution of JavaScript code by Google entirely, you can install a JavaScript blocker for your browser.

You can find more detailed information about terms and conditions of use and data privacy at: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/


3.4 Use of Google Remarketing

This website uses the Google Remarketing technology of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). This is a retargeting technology, which enables us to address visitors to our website again through targeted advertising on the websites of the Google advertising network. The advertising is displayed by using so-called cookies.

For this purpose, cookies are placed on your computer, with the help of which third-party providers, including Google, record which of our websites were visited with your browser. With this information, our advertisements can then be displayed on other websites at a later time, e.g. within the scope of the Google search or on websites of the Google network. Additional information about Google’s data privacy and the functionality of remarketing can be found at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. You can also deactivate the storage of cookies and/or collection within the scope of Google Remarketing by https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

 

3.5 Use of Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. With this service, website tags can be administered via an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: No cookies are used and no personal data are collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn, may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If a deactivation has been executed at the domain or cookie level, it will remain valid for all tracking tags, provided that they have been implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

You can find extensive details in the data privacy center of google.de: Transparency and options, as well as privacy policies at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de.

 

3.6 Hotjar web analysis service

Furthermore, the operating system, browser, incoming and outgoing links, geographical origin and the resolution and type of device are evaluated for statistical purposes. The information generated during the course of this by the “tracking code” and “cookie” about the user’s visit to the ACTICO GmbH website is sent to the Hotjar server in Ireland and stored there. This information has no personal reference and is not disclosed to third parties by Hotjar. If the user does not want information to be recorded, the user can deactivate this on all websites that use Hotjar by setting the DoNotTrack header in the user’s browser.

5. Our services on the website


5.1 Contact form/inquiries

On our website, you have the opportunity to send us inquiries using the contact form. Your details from the contact form (content of you inquiry, subject of your inquiry and date), including the contact details (first name, surname, company name, telephone number and e-mail) provided by you are stored with us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of subsequent questions. We do not disclose these data without your consent. The legal basis for the collection and processing of the data is Art. 6 Subsection 1 GDPR.

The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or until the purpose of the data storage ceases to exist (e.g. after completed processing of your inquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions - particularly retention periods - remain unaffected.


5.2 E-mail contact

If you send us inquiries or information by e-mail, your details (e-mail address, content of your e-mail, subject of your e-mail and date), including the contact details (first name, surname, telephone number, address) provided by you are stored with us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of subsequent questions. We do not disclose these data without your consent. The legal basis for the collection and processing of the data is Art. 6 Subsection 1 GDPR.

The user is informed that e-mails may be read or changed during the transmission without authorization and without being noticed. ACTICO uses a software to filter unwanted e-mails (spam filter). The spam filter may reject e-mails if they have been erroneously identified as spam by specific characteristics.

The data entered by you remains with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or until the purpose of the data storage ceases to exist (e.g. after completed processing of your inquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions - particularly retention periods - remain unaffected.


5.3 Comment function in the blog

On our website, you have the opportunity to leave public comments on individual contributions. Your comment will be stored and published with your provided user name, as well as details about the time of the comment entry. We recommend using an alias instead of your clear name. Furthermore, the IP address allocated by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject will also be logged.

Comments are checked prior to publication. If you write us a message on our blog, you are required to provide your e-mail address and user name, all further information is voluntary, this information is not visible for other blog users. The legal basis for the collection and processing of the data is Art. 6 Subsection 1 GDPR.

Authors of a comment retain the copyright to the contributions they have composed. However, they grant ACTICO the right to display the contributions on www.actico.com permanently.

The e-mail entered by you remains with us, until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or until the purpose of the data storage ceases to exist. Mandatory statutory provisions - particularly retention periods - remain unaffected. Storage is necessary for us in order to be able to defend ourselves from liability claims, in the event of a possible publication of unlawful contents. We need your e-mail address in order to make contact with you, in the event that a third party objects to your comment as being unlawful. We reserve the right to delete comments, if they are objected to as being unlawful by a third party.


5.4 Subscription to our newsletter

On our website, you have the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. With this, we inform our customers and business partners about the company’s offers at regular intervals. For this, we will require a valid e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to check that you are the owner of the stated e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter. No additional data are collected, or if so, only on a voluntary basis. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the e-mail address entered by the data subject for the first time for dispatch of the newsletter, using the double-opt-in procedure. We exclusively use these data for sending the newsletter and do not disclose these to third parties. The legal basis for the collection and processing of the data is Art. 6 Subsection 1 GDPR.

When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address allocated by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject whose computer system was used at the time of the subscription, as well as the date and time of the subscription. The collection of these data is required in order to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject’s e-mail address at a later time and is therefore for our security.

You may revoke the consent that is granted for storage of data, the e-mail address and their use for dispatching the newsletter at any time, such as via the “Unsubscribe” link in every newsletter. Alternatively, please feel free to send your unsubscribe request by e-mail at any time to info@actico.com by e-mail. The lawfulness of the data processing actions, which have already occurred until the revocation, remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data, which you have stored with us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after canceling the newsletter.


5.5 Newsletter tracking

The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails, which are sent in HTML format in order to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis. As a result of this, a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns can be performed. On the basis of the embedded tracking pixel, we can identify whether and when an e-mail has been opened by a data subject and which links contained in the e-mail have been accessed by the data subject.

Such personal data, which are collected through the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters, are stored and evaluated by us on the basis of legitimate interests in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. The legal basis is Art. 6 Subsection 1 GDPR. These personal data are not disclosed to third parties. Data subjects are entitled to revoke the declaration of consent, which has been submitted in this respect using the double-opt-in procedure, at any time. After a revocation, these personal data are deleted by the data controller. Unsubscribing from the newsletter is regarded as an automatic revocation.


5.6 Career section/online application

On our website, you have the opportunity to use the career section and/or submit applications by e-mail. The personal data (master data, contact details, attachments, such as cover letters, curriculum vitae, reference letters etc.) of applicants are collected and processed for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also occur electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents, e.g. by e-mail using a web form available on the website, to the data controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with the applicant, the sent data are stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded by the data controller with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted six months after notifying the rejection decision, provided that other legitimate interests of the data controller do not oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is e.g. a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). The legal basis for the collection and processing of the data is Art. 6 Subsection 1 GDPR.

 

6. Sending of data


6.1 Sending internally, within ACTICO

We send your data internally to the Administration, Human Resources department, works council and Payroll department in order to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations. Data transmission or disclosure of your data only occurs to the extent necessary for this, in accordance with the relevant data privacy regulations.


6.2 Sending Group-wide

ACTICO is a globally active company, which is based in Germany. The data, which you send to us, are store in our centralized customer database in Germany and disclosed within the Group for administrative purposes. If an exchange of data occurs within the Group, this occurs to fulfill a contract or as a term of use for the website. Furthermore, an interest may exist in disclosing these data for internal, administrative purposes. If the processing of your data occurs outside of Europe, for example in Singapore or the USA, this transmission will occur in compliance with all valid data privacy law and particularly in accordance with Art. 44 f. GDPR.


6.3 Sending to third parties

We send your data to specific third parties, in order to be able to provide appropriate applications and services (so-called “processors”), who provide external services for us. For example newsletter services, IT providers, tax office, etc. Sending to other third parties may occur in order to fulfill our duties (authorities, banks, social security agencies, etc.). Third parties only process the data in accordance with our instructions, furthermore they are prohibited from using these data for their own commercial purposes, which do not correspond to the agreed purposes.

We must disclose personal data if we are obligated to do so within the scope of ongoing legal proceedings on the basis of an order, legally or on the basis of valid law (Art. 6 Subsection 1 Letter f GDPR).

We only disclose your personal data to third parties, if:

  • you have granted your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Subsection 1 S. 1 Letter a GDPR,
  • disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 Subsection 1 S. 1 Letter f GDPR to assert, exercise and defend legal claims and no reason exists for assuming that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • in the event that a legal obligation exists for disclosure in accordance with Art. 6 Subsection 1 S. 1 Letter c GDPR, and
  • this is legally admissible and necessary for processing the contractual relationships, in accordance with Art. 6 Subsection 1 S. 1 Letter b GDPR.

If the processing of your data occurs outside of Europe, for example in Singapore or the USA, this transmission will occur in compliance with all valid data privacy law and particularly in accordance with Art. 44 f. GDPR.


6.4 Sending to a third country or international organization

We send your data to countries outside of the EU/the EEA (so-called third countries) on the basis of the aforementioned purposes (sending Group-wide and sending to third parties). The sending only occurs to execute our contractual and legal duties or on the basis of your consent. This sending occurs in compliance with all valid data privacy laws and specifically in accordance with Art. 44 f. GDPR. In particular, either on the basis of issued adequacy resolutions of the European Commission or on the basis of specific guarantees (e.g. standard privacy clauses, etc.).

  

7. Existence of automated decision-making, including profiling

As a company that is aware of its responsibility, we waive automated decision-making or profiling.

 

8. Duration of storage

As a general rule, we store your data for as long as it is necessary for providing our online service and the associated services or if this has been prescribed in the laws or regulations imposed on the data processor by issuers of European regulations and regulators. In all other cases, we delete your personal data after the purpose is completed, with the exception of such data, which we must continue to store for the fulfillment of legal obligations (e.g. on the basis of retention periods under tax law and commercial code, we are obligated to retain documents, e.g. contracts and invoices for a certain period of time).

 

9. Technical security

ACTICO uses technical and organizational security measures, in order to protect your data, which is administered by us, against accidental or malicious manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in accordance with technological developments.

For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential contents, such as the inquiries you send to us as a website operator, this website uses SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the respective highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this involves 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we resort to 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can identify whether an individual page of our website has been transmitted with encryption by the address bar of the browser switching from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.

If the SSL encryption is activated, the data, which you send to us, cannot be read by third parties.

We point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. with communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. Gap-free protection of the data prior to access by third parties is not possible.


10. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 Letter a GDPR serves as a legal basis for our company for processing activities, in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract, whose contracting party is the data subject, as is the case, for example, with processing activities, which are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I Letter b GDPR. The same applies to such processing activities, which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in the cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation, due to which processing of personal data becomes necessary, for example for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I Letter c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our premises and his name, age, health insurance fund details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. Then, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I Letter d GDPR. Finally, processing activities may be based on Art. 6 I Letter f GDPR. Processing activities are based on this legal foundation, which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases, if the processing is required to preserve our company’s legitimate interest or that of a third party, provided that the interests, constitutional rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh this. If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I Letter f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the implementation of our business activity in favor of the wellbeing of all of our employees and customers.

Legal or contractual regulations on the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly prescribed by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may arise from contractual regulations (e.g. details about the contracting party). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must be subsequently processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obligated to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with it. Non-provision of personal data would have the consequence that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is legally or contractually prescribed or necessary for conclusion of the contract, whether an obligation exists to provide the personal data and which consequences the non-provision of the personal data has.


11. Information for minors

This online service is not aimed at children under the age of 16. Persons, who have not yet reached the age of 16, may not send any personal data to ACTICO without the consent of the parent or legal guardian.


12. Rights of the data subjects

12.1 Right to disclosure

You have the right to disclosure about the data stored by us, duration of the data, purpose and legal basis for storage, as well as the origin and recipients of transmissions. Inaccurate data shall be corrected, inadmissibly stored or no longer necessary data shall be deleted. Furthermore, the data subject has a right to object, at right to restriction of processing and the right to data transferability.

This information is prepared upon application by you. This disclosure is free of charge.

You also have the right to directly submit a complaint to a supervisory authority.

 

12.2 Revocation of your consent to data processing

Some data processing activities are only possible with your express consent. You have the possibility to revoke a consent that has already been granted at any time. For this, an informal notification by e-mail to us at info@actico.com is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing, which has occurred until the revocation, remains unaffected by the revocation.
