Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection regulations of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to protection of his or her privacy as well as protection against misuse of his or her personal data. We comply with these provisions. Personal data is treated as strictly confidential and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties. In close cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification. When you access our websites, the following data is stored in log files: IP address, date, time, browser request and generally transmitted information on the operating system or browser. This usage data forms the basis for statistical, anonymous evaluations, so that trends can be identified which we can use to improve our offers accordingly.
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously!
They treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
As a rule, it is possible to use this website without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is nevertheless collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis.
Some of this data is passed on to third parties in accordance with this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies, which serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses! Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, including your IP address, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

the IP address and host name of the requesting computer,
the date and time of access,
the website from which the access was made (referrer URL), if applicable with the search word used,
the name and URL of the file accessed,
the status code (e.g. error message),

if applicable, your user name from a registration/authentication
Mobile device type
This data cannot be directly assigned to specific persons. We do not combine this data with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use. The collection and processing of this data is carried out for the purpose of enabling the use of our website (connection establishment), to ensure system security and stability on a permanent basis and to enable the optimisation of our internet offer as well as for internal statistical purposes. This is our legitimate interest in data processing within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as described in the section entitled "Objection to data collection".
Google Fonts are used on this website. As far as we know, no personal data is stored by Google. However, for technical reasons, your IP address must be transmitted to Google so that the fonts can be transferred to your browser. More information from Google on Google Fonts can be found here.
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the site is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Note on data transfer to the USA
For the sake of completeness, we would like to point out for users resident or domiciled in Switzerland that there are monitoring measures in place in the USA by US authorities which generally allow the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data has been transferred from Switzerland to the USA. This is done without any differentiation, limitation or exception based on the objective pursued and without any objective criterion that would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes that are capable of justifying the intrusion associated with both the access to and the use of these data. Furthermore, we would like to point out that in the USA, there are no legal remedies available to data subjects from Switzerland that allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to obtain their correction or deletion, or that there is no effective judicial legal protection against general access rights of US authorities. We explicitly draw the attention of the data subject to this legal and factual situation so that he or she can make an appropriately informed decision to consent to the use of his or her data.
We would like to point out to users residing in a member state of the EU that the USA does not have a sufficient level of data protection from the perspective of the European Union - among other things due to the issues mentioned in this section. Where we have explained in this privacy statement that recipients of data (such as Google) are based in the USA, we will ensure that your data is protected to an appropriate level with our partners either by contractual arrangements with these companies or by ensuring that these companies are certified under the EU or Swiss-US Privacy Shield.
Retention of data
We only store personal data for as long as is necessary to use the tracking and analysis services mentioned above as well as further processing within the scope of our legitimate interest. We retain contractual data for longer as this is required by legal retention obligations. Retention obligations that oblige us to retain data result from accounting regulations and tax regulations. According to these regulations, business communication, concluded contracts and accounting vouchers must be kept for up to 10 years. As far as we no longer need this data to perform the services for you, the data will be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and tax purposes.
We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored with us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. You should always treat your access data confidentially and close the browser window when you have finished communicating with us, especially if you share the computer with others.
We also take internal company data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
Right to information, deletion, blocking
You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data.
For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority
You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority at any time.
