Use of YouTube

This site has embedded YouTube functions. These functions are offered by YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA. Further information can be found in YouTube’s privacy policy.

Use of the Vimeo-Plugin

This site makes use of plugins operated by Vimeo.com, Vimeo LCC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Upon calling such a plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established and the plugin is thereby shown on the internet page via the user’s browser. As a result, information regarding what internet pages the user has visited is sent to the Vimeo servers. Should the user be logged in with their Vimeo account, Vimeo matches this information with the respective personal user account in the process. By making use of these plugins e.g. by clicking/start button of a video or posting a comment, this information is matched with the e.g. Vimeo user account, which can only be prevented by logging out prior to using these plugins. Information regarding the collection and use of data by the aforementioned platform or by plugins can be found in their privacy policy at: http://vimeo.com/privacy.

Google AdWords - Conversion-Tracking

This website makes use of the online advertising program, “Google AdWords,” and in the context of Google AdWords it uses conversion tracking. The conversion cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google ad. Cookies are small text files which are saved in their local computer system. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits sites of this website and the cookie has yet to expire, Google and ACTICO will be able to tell that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to that page.

The information collected by the conversion cookie is used to aggregate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted-in to conversion tracking. ACTICO receives the total number of users who have clicked on its ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. ACTICO does not, however, receive information with which the user could be personally identified. If the user does not want to take part in the tracking, the user can object to such use by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in their internet browser’s user settings. No conversion tracking statistics will be collected by the user as a result.

Web analysis service Google Analytics / Universal Analytics

ACTICO uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. ("Google") web analysis service. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are saved on the user’s computer and that allow for an analysis regarding the use of this website. The information regarding the use of this website generated through the cookie is usually transferred to and saved on a Google server in the USA. In the case of activating data anonymization, however, the user’s IP address will be shortened before within member states of the EU and or other contracting member states through the European Economic Area. 

Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA in full and then be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze the use of this website, to compile reports regarding web activities and to provide the website owner with other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet. The user’s IP address transferred by the user’s browser will not be combined with other Google data. The user can disable the storage of cookies through the corresponding browser setting. ACTICO  points out, however, that not all functions of this website can be used to their full extent in the case of disabled cookies.

Furthermore, the user can prevent both Google’s collection of the data generated by the cookie and relating to the use of this website (including the IP address) as well as the processing of data through Google. To this end, the user has to download and install the following plugin:
Link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

The following link is an alternative to the browser plugin and it is also to be used on mobile device browsers to set an opt-out cookie which will prevent the collection through Google Analytics on this website in future (this opt-out cookie works only in this browser and only for this domain, deleting browser cookies, click link again):

ACTICO points out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and therefore only shortened IP addresses are processed which makes individual identification of the user impossible.

Cookies

ACTICO uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which are saved locally on the clipboard of the user’s internet browser. Cookies make it possible to recognize the internet browser. These files are used to help the browser navigate through the website and use all functions to their full extent.

Email security

The user agrees with electronic communication as soon as they initiate electronic communication with ACTICO. It is noted that unauthorized parties can read emails on transmission. ACTICO uses a software to filter junk mails (spam filter). With this spam filter, emails can be rejected if they are erroneously identified as spam due to certain characteristics.

Data transfer- SSL encryption

All User data is always transferred securely encrypted.

Right to information

According to the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG), the German Data Protection Act, the user has the right to receive information relating to their stored data as well as to the correction, blocking or deletion of that data free of charge. Upon request, ACTICO will in writing inform the user according to the law about the personal data ACTICO has stored of them. This information is free of charge.

User's right to object

If the user does not want ACTICO to use their data for internal purposes, they are entitled according to Article 28(4) of the German Data Protection Act to object to such use or processing. To this end, they can send a corresponding email to info@actico.com. The particular case of law-required data locking (according to Article 35(3) of the German Data Protection Act) instead of data deletion remains unaffected.

Data transfer and data recording for intrasystem and statistical purposes

The user’s internet browser automatically transfers data to the web server for technical purposes upon accessing this website. Every dataset consists of the date and time of the access, the URL of the redirecting website, files retrieved, the set of data transmitted, browser type and browser version, operating system as well as the user’s IP address. Assigning this data to a particular person is not possible. The recorded data is used only for internal and analyzed solely for statistical purposes.

Security through technical and organizational measures

ACTICO uses technical and organizational security measures to protect data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons according to Article 9 of the German Data Protection Act. The safety measures in use are subject to continuous improvement along with the technological progress.

Protection of minors

Persons below the age of 12 may not transmit personal data to ACTICO without the approval of their parents. Minors may only provide ACTICO with personal information with the consent of their parents or the minors are 12 years or older. These data will be processed according to this data privacy statement.
