General note

Under Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the provisions of the Swiss Confederation on data protection (Data Protection Act, DPA), everyone has the right to protection of their privacy and protection against the misuse of their personal data. The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions and this data protection declaration.

In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases to the best of our ability against unauthorised access, loss, misuse or falsification.

We would like to point out that the transmission of data over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with the following description. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as the pages called up or the name of the file called up, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data such as name, address or e-mail address is collected on a voluntary basis as far as possible. Without your consent, the data will not be passed on to third parties.

Processing of personal data

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data are processed. Processing shall include any processing of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures involved, including storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, retention, alteration, destruction and use of personal data.

We process personal data in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Act. In addition, we process personal data – insofar as the EU DPA is applicable – in accordance with the following legal principles in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 of the DPA :

lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.

lit. b) Processing of personal data for the purpose of performance of a contract concluded with the data subject and for the purpose of implementing appropriate pre-contractual measures.

lit. c) Processing of personal data for the performance of a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable law of the EU or any applicable law of any country in which the DPA is applicable in whole or in part.

lit. d) processing of personal data for the purpose of protecting the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.

lit. f) the processing of personal data carried out for the purpose of safeguarding our legitimate interests or those of third parties, unless the fundamental rights and freedoms or the interests of the data subject outweigh these interests. Legitimate interests include in particular our commercial interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the implementation of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.

We process personal data for the time necessary for the respective purpose(s). In the event of long-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we limit processing accordingly.

Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-analysis of your usage in the settings under “My Data”, “Personal Data”.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f RGPD. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. We would like to point out that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “_anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are then processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is therefore immediately deleted.

Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. At the request of the website operator, 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 for the website operator.

You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link : Deactivate Google Analytics.

You can also prevent the use of Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Disable Google Analytics. A so-called “opt-out” cookie is stored on your data carrier, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e. you will have to reset them if you wish to continue to prevent this form of data collection. Deactivation cookies are set per browser and computer/device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer or other device.
