Last updated: May 2018 

Thank you for your interest in the website of our company.

With this data protection declaration we would like to inform you about the collection and other processing of personal data when using our website www.actiware-development.com, the purposes pursued with it and the data protection rights to which you are entitled.

What is personal data?

In simplified terms, personal data is all information that can be associated with you personally and by means of which you can be identified, e.g. name, address, e-mail address or usage behavior.

The legal definition of personal data and other important terms from this data protection declaration can be found in Article 4 of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which you can download free of charge e.g. at http://data.europa.eu/ 

Do I have to provide personal data if I use www.actiware-development.com?

You can generally use our website www.actiware-development.com without providing any personal data.

If you submit inquiries to us via our website or make use of the services of our company, the processing of personal data is generally necessary. In this case, we always obtain your consent to the processing of personal data if and insofar as there is no legal basis for data processing without consent.

Legal framework of data processing

Insofar as personal data is collected or otherwise processed when visiting our website, this is done in compliance with the applicable national and European data protection regulations, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in their current versions.
