ACTANO Holding AG is delighted you have chosen to visit our website. ACTANO values the protection of your personal data highly and, as such, would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of data collection we carry out and how your personal data is processed in connection with your use of this website.
The concept of personal data is defined under the Federal Data Protection Act. According to the Act, personal data is defined as individual information based on the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This could include your real name, address, telephone number or date of birth.
Anonymous data collection and processing
Unless otherwise indicated in the sections that follow, no personal data is collected, processed or used during the use of our website. Some information is transmitted when our website is accessed; this includes your IP address, the type and version of web browser used, the operating system used, the website from which you arrived and the time of the query.
This data cannot be used by us to identify individual users. It is analysed by us statistically and is used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of our web pages.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”: text files that are saved on your computer and enable your use of this website operators to be analysed. As a rule, cookie-generated information about your use of this website will be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If IP anonymization has been activated for this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union and other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity and to perform other services associated with website and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will not be stored in conjunction with other data held by Google. You can prevent the saving of cookies by changing the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, we ask you to note that if you do so, you may not be able to fully access all functions of this website. In addition, you can prevent Google from recording and processing cookie-generated data (including your IP address) about your use of this website by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
You can prevent the recording of data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. It will install an opt-out cookie that blocks any future collection of data pertaining to your visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
In regards to the recording of complete IP addresses by analysis tools, please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and that data will therefore be processed only following truncation of the IP address, to prevent it from being linked to a particular individual.
Adwords conversion tracking
In order to make prospective customers aware of our services, we use Google AdWords ads. We also use Google Conversion Tracking and Google Tag Manager for the purpose of personalised, location- and interest-based online advertising. In Google Tag Manager, the option to anonymise IP addresses is controlled via an internal setting that is not visible in the source code of this website. This internal setting is configured such that the anonymization of IP addresses required by the Federal Data Protection Act is automatically carried out.
The ads appear on websites in the Google Display Network following search queries. We have the option to combine our ads with specific search terms. Using cookies, we can display ads based on a user’s previous visits to our website.
Through this technology, Google – and us as a customer – receive information about the fact that a user has clicked on an ad and been redirected to our website. The information obtained during this process is used exclusively to carry out statistical analysis for the purpose of optimising the ad. We do not receive any information that could allow a visitor to be personally identified. The statistics provided to us by Google include the total number of users who have clicked on one of our ads and whether they were redirected to a page of our website containing a conversion tag. Based on these statistics, we can see which search terms resulted most often in clicks on our ads and which ads led to the user establishing contact via our contact form.
If you do not wish this to happen, you can prevent the necessary cookies being saved by changing the settings of your browser. In this case, your visit will not be included in the user statistics.
You also have the option to select the types of Google ads you see or to disable interest-based ads on Google by changing your ad settings. Alternatively, you can disable the use of third-party cookies using the opt-out tool provided by the Network Advertising Initiative.
In this case, however, we and Google will still receive statistical information about how many users visited our site. If you do not want to be included in these statistics, you can prevent this through the use of additional browser tools such as the add-on Ghostery.
You can contact us via our email address or our contact form.
We collect personal data when you provide it to us of your own accord, e.g. when you contact us.
