​Data privacy policy

We are delighted that you have visited our Internet site www.aktuar.de and are pleased by your interest in our company. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Personal data are information about the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable, natural person. These include the civilian name, address, telephone number and the date of birth, although also all other data that can be assigned to an identifiable person. As personal data enjoy special protection under law, they are only recorded by us if this is necessary for the provision of our Internet site and the promotion of our services. We explain to you below which personal information we record during your visit to our Internet site and how we use these data. Our data protection policy conforms to legal regulations, in particular those of the Federal Act on Data Protection (BDSG), the Telemedia Act (TMG) and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will solely record, process and save your personal data insofar as this is required to provide the proper functions of this Internet site and our contents and services, although also to answer your inquiries and, if appropriate, to process orders / contracts, but only insofar as a justified interest exists for this in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 P.1 Letter f GDPR or some other permitting circumstance. We only use your data for further-going purposes determined exactly in the consent, e.g. for sending promotional information by newsletter, if you have issued your consent separately beforehand.

These data are stored in our system’s log files. These data are not merged with the personal data of an actual user, so that it is not possible to identify individual visitors to the site.

Legal basis for processing personal data

Art. 6 Para.1 Letter f GDPR (justified interest). Our justified interest is in ensuring that the objective described below is achieved.

Purpose of data processing
Logging is performed to retain the compatibility of our Internet site for all visitors, if possible, to combat misuse and to rectify disturbances. In this respect, it is necessary to log the technical data of the accessing computer in order to react at the earliest possible stage to depiction errors, attacks on our IT systems and/or errors in the proper functioning of our Internet site. In addition, the data serve the purpose of optimising the website and of generally ensuring the security of our technical information systems.

Duration of storage
The aforesaid technical data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to ensure the compatibility of the Internet site for all visitors, although at the latest 3 months after our Internet site has been called-up.

Options of objection and rectification
The options of objection and rectification are governed by the general regulations on the right of objection and the claim to deletion under data protection law described below in this declaration of data protection. :

4. Statistical evaluation of visits to this Internet site – web tracking services

When this Internet site or individual files on the Internet site are called-up, we record, process and save the following data: IP address, the web site from which the file was called-up, the name of the file, the date and time of call-up, the data volume transmitted and a message concerning the success of the call-up (web log). We use these access data solely in a non-personalised form in order to constantly improve our Internet services and for statistical purposes.
We additionally deploy the following web tracking services to evaluate visits to this Internet site:

Google Analytics
Scope of processing personal data
We deploy the web tracking service offered by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Park in 94043 Mountain View, USA (referred to below as Google Analytics) on our website. In the context of this web tracking, Google Analytics deploys cookies. These are saved on your computer and enable the use of our website and your surfing behaviour to be analysed (so-called tracking). We perform this analysis on the basis of the tracking service offered by Google-Analytics, in order to continuously optimise our Internet presence and to improve its availability. In the course of use of our web site, data (in particular, your IP address and your user activities) are transmitted to a server of Google LLC, where they are processed and stored outside the European Union, e.g. in the USA.

The EU Commission has established that a reasonable level of data protection can exist in the USA, if the data processing enterprise is subject to the US-EU Privacy Shield Treaty and the data are exported reliably to the USA in this way. By activating IP anonymisation in the Google-Analytics tracking code of this Internet page, your IP address is anonymised by Google Analytics before transmission. This website uses a Google Analytics tracking code extended by the operator gat._anonymizeIp(). This ensures anonymised recording of IP addresses (IP masking).

Legal basis for processing personal data
Art. 6 Para.1 Letter a GDPR (consent), either in the context of registering with Google (opening a Google account and accepting the data privacy notices posted there) or, if you have not registered with Google, through your explicit consent by opening our site.

Purpose of data processing
Working on our behalf, Google uses this information to evaluate your visit to this Internet site, to compile reports about the web site activities and to provide further services for us that are connected with use of the web site and of the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the course of Google Analytics is not merged with other data of Google LLC.

Duration of storage
Google stores the data relevant to the provision of the web tracking service as long as is necessary to fulfil the web service booked. Data are recorded and saved in an anonymised manner. The data are deleted without delay if a reference to a person exists, unless the person falls under the legal duties of retention. In any case, data are deleted after the retention period has expired.

Options of objection and rectification
You can prevent your personal data being recorded and forwarded to Google (in particular, your IP address) and so stop these data being processed by Google, in that you de-activate execution of script code in your browser and install a script blocker in your browser (for example, these can be found at www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com) or activate the “Do Not Track” setting in your browser. You can furthermore prevent the data generated by the Google cookie and referring to your use of the website (including your IP address) being recorded by Google and this data being processed by Google, in that you download the browser plug-in available from the following link () and install it. The privacy policy and the fundamentals of data protection observed by Google-Analytics can be found here.

5. Involvement of external web services and processing data outside the EU

We deploy active Java script contents from external providers on our Internet site, so-called web services. By calling-up our Internet site, these external providers may receive personal information about your visit to our Internet site. This may mean that data are processed outside the EU. You can prevent this, in that you install a Java script blocker, such as the browser plug-in 'NoScript' (www.noscript.net) or de-activate Java script in your browser. However, this may mean that functions on the Internet sites you visit are impaired.

6. Information on the use of cookies

Scope of processing personal data
We deploy cookies on different pages to enable the use of certain functions on our website. Cookies are small text files, which can be deposited on your computer by your browser. These text files contain a characteristic sequence, which allows the browser to be uniquely identified if our website is called up again. The process of depositing a cookie file is also called 'placing a cookie'.

Legal basis for processing personal data
Art. 6 Para.1 Letter f GDPR (justified interest). Our justified interest is that the full functionality of our Internet site is retained, user-friendliness is raised and customers can be addressed individually. We can identify individual visits to the site with the help of cookie technology only if the site visitor has disclosed the relevant personal data to us beforehand on the basis of a separate consent.

Purpose of data processing
Our website uses cookies to retain the full functionality of our Internet site and to improve user-friendliness. In addition, cookie technology enables us to recognise individual visitors by pseudonyms (e.g. an individual, random ID). This makes it possible for us to offer tailormade services.

Duration of storage
Our cookies are saved until they are deleted in your browser or, if a session cookie is concerned, until the session has ended.

Options of objection and rectification
You can yourself determine the settings in your browser so that the placing of cookies is generally prevented, that you receive a message about this, decide whether to accept cookies on a case-by-case basis or to accept cookies as a matter of principle. Cookies can be deployed for various purposes, for example, to recognise that your PC has linked to our web presence before (permanent cookies) or to save the offers last viewed (session cookies). We deploy cookies to offer you a higher level of user comfort. In order to benefit from our comfort functions, we recommend that you accept cookies for our web presence.
The options of objection and rectification are otherwise governed by the general regulations on the right of objection and the claim to deletion under data protection law described below in this declaration of data protection.

7. Data security and data protection, communication by e-Mail

Your personal data are protected by technical means and organisational measures during their recording, saving and processing in such a way that they cannot be accessed by third parties. We cannot warrant complete data security along the transmission path to our IT systems for communications by e-Mail that have not been encrypted. We therefore recommend that information with a high degree of secrecy is encrypted or sent by post.

8. Revocation of consent – information on data and requests for change – deletion & blockage of data

You have the right, once per annum, to receive information about data stored about you free-of-charge and a right of correction, blockage or deletion of your data at any time.
