General information

In accordance with Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Federation (Data Protection Act, DPA), every individual has the right to protection of their privacy and protection against misuse of their personal data. The operators of this site take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data in confidence, according to the statutory data protection regulations and in line with this data privacy policy.

In conjunction with our hosting providers, we strive to protect our databases as effectively as possible against external access, loss, misuse and forgery.

Please note, however, that data transmission over the internet (e.g. in email communication) can involve security loopholes. Complete protection of data against third-party access is not possible.

By using this website, you are agreeing to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description. As a matter of principle, this website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed, names of files downloaded, the date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes in this context, without any direct connection between you and this data. Personal data, in particular, your name, address and email address, are collected only on a voluntary basis as far as possible. Data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Processing of personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A data subject is a person whose personal data are being processed. Processing covers any operation, which is performed on personal data, irrespective of the means or procedures, in particular, retention, disclosure, procurement, erasure, storage, alteration, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection legislation. In addition, we process personal data – insofar and to the extent that the EU GDPR is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles relating to Art. 6 (1) GDPR:

  • point (a) processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
  • point (b) processing of personal data for performance of a contract with the data subject or in order to take appropriate steps prior to entering into a contract.
  • point (c) processing of personal data for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject under applicable EU laws or under the applicable laws of a country in which the GDPR is in force in whole or in part.
  • point (d) processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
  • point (f) processing of personal data to uphold our legitimate interests or those of third parties, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Legitimate interests include, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the pursuit of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.

We process personal data for the period necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of retention obligations for longer periods based on statutory or other requirements that apply to us, we restrict processing accordingly.

Use of cookies

This website uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific information about the user on the user’s end device while they are using the website. Cookies make it possible, in particular, to determine the frequency of use and the number of pages used, to analyse user behaviour, and to make our website more user-friendly. Cookies are stored beyond the end of a browser session and can be accessed when the site is visited again. If you do not want this to happen, you should set your internet browser in such a way that it rejects cookies.

Use of SSL encryption

For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential material, such as enquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and from the lock icon that appears in your browser bar.

When SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Storage of data in server log files

The provider of this website collects and stores information automatically in so-called server log files, which your browser sends to us automatically. 
This includes:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

These data cannot be associated with specific individuals. These data are not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete evidence of unlawful use.

Queries via the contact form

If you send us queries via the contact form, we store the information on the contact form, including the contact details you provide there, for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case there are any follow-up questions. We do not pass these data on without your consent.

Newsletter data

If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on this website, we require an email address from you and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and have agreed to receive the newsletter. Other data will not be collected. We use these data only to send the information requested and we do not pass them on to third parties.

You may withdraw your consent to storage of the data and the email address and to their use to send the newsletter at any time by clicking on the “Cancel” link in the newsletter, for example.

Right to information, erasure, blocking

You have the right at any time to obtain information free of charge about the personal data stored about you, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing; you also have a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions about personal data at the address provided in the legal notice.

 

Objection to marketing emails

Use of the contact details published in the context of the obligatory legal notice to send marketing and information materials not expressly requested is hereby rejected. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited distribution of marketing information, in the form of spam emails, for example.

 

Use of Hubspot

This website uses Hubspot from Hubspot, Inc to adapt content for visitors and subscribers to this website and to manage how we communicate with you. The cookies collect data about user behaviour of visitors to our site. These data are included in analyses and help to improve our website. The cookies collect anonymised data such as the number of website visitors, how they came across the site and which pages they have visited. For more information about Hubspot cookies, please refer to the Hubspot privacy policy.

Use of Google AdWords

This website uses Google conversion tracking. If you access our website via an ad placed by Google, a cookie will be set on your computer by Google AdWords. The conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on an advertisement displayed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to identify individuals. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the user has clicked on the advertisement and been forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be used to track AdWords customers via the website. The information obtained with the aid of the conversion cookie is used to draw up conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and been forwarded to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. They cannot obtain any information allowing users to be identified in person, however.

If you do not wish to take part in tracking, you can reject the cookies required – by adjusting your browser settings so that automatic downloading of cookies is deactivated in general or so that cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com” are blocked.

Please note that you should not erase the opt-out cookies if you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have erased all the cookies in the browser, you will have to reset the opt-out cookie in question.

 

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To deactivate Google Analytics, Google provides a browser plug-in. Google Analytics uses cookies. These are small text files that make it possible to store specific information about the user on the user’s end device. These allow Google to analyse use of our website. The information recorded by the cookie about the use of our site (including your IP address) is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Please note that Google Analytics has been extended to include the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). When anonymisation is active, Google truncates IP addresses within the Member States of the European Union and in other countries that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which prevents any conclusions from being drawn about your identity. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the “Privacy Shield” agreement and is registered with the “Privacy Shield” programme of the US Department of Commerce. It uses the information collected to evaluate the use of our website, draw up reports for us in this connection and provide other related services to us.More about Google Analytics.
