General information

On the basis of article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (Data Protection Act, FADP), every person has a right to protection of their private sphere and to protection against misuse of their personal data. The operator of this site takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal information confidentially, and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this data protection statement.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect our databases as effectively as possible against external access, loss, misuse or falsification.

We point out that data transfer over the Internet (e.g. communication via email) may be exposed to security weaknesses. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is impossible.

By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and usage of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. When this happens, data, such as the accessed pages, names of accessed files, dates and times for instance, is stored for statistical purposes on the server, without this data being directly linked to you personally. Insofar as possible, personal data, such as name, address or email address in particular, is collected on a voluntary basis. No data is forwarded to third parties without your consent.


Processing of personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person whose personal data is processed. Processing means any handling of personal data, regardless of the applied means or methods, especially the storage, disclosure, acquisition, erasure, recording, alteration, destruction or use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Act. Furthermore, insofar as the EU’s GDPR is applicable, we process personal data as per the following legal provisions in the context of art. 6 para. 1 GDPR:

  • (a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
  • (b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party and in order to take corresponding steps prior to entering into a contract.
  • (c) Processing of personal data for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject according to any applicable EU law or any applicable law of a country in which GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
  • (d) Processing of personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
  • (f) Processing of personal data for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by third parties, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. In particular, legitimate interests include: our economic interest in being able to provide our website, data security, the assertion of our own legal claims and adherence to Swiss law.

We process personal data for the duration necessitated by the respective purpose or purposes. In the event of longer-lasting retention obligations based on legal or other obligations to which we are subject, we limit processing accordingly.

Google AdWords

This website uses Google conversion tracking. Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google advertisement. The cookie for conversion tracking is added when a user clicks on a Google advertisement. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the advertisement and has been redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have chosen to use conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and been redirected to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified.

If you do not wish to take part in the tracking process, you can refuse storage of the required cookies – e.g. by changing your browser settings to generally deactivate automatic cookie storage, or by changing your browser settings so that cookies from the domain are blocked.
