Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Confederation (Data Protection Act, FADP), every person has the right to protection of his or her privacy and to protection against misuse of his or her 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 regulations and this data protection declaration.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as much as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of the retrieved file, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address, are collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. In addition, we process – insofar as and insofar as the EU GDPR is applicable – personal data in accordance with the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR:
- Lit. a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
- Lit. b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
- Lit. c) Processing of personal data to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject in accordance with any applicable law of the EU or in accordance with any applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
- Lit. d) Processing of personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
- Lit. f) Processing of personal data in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of us or of third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and fundamental rights as well as interests of the data subject prevail. Legitimate interests are, in particular, our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration required for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer retention obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict the processing accordingly.
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Data transmission security (without SSL)
Please note that data transmitted via an open network such as the Internet or an e-mail service without SSL encryption can be viewed by everyone. You can recognize an unencrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser shows “http://” and no lock symbol is displayed in your browser line. Information transmitted over the Internet and content received online may be transmitted via third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communications or documents transmitted over such open or third-party networks.
If you disclose personal information through an open network or networks of third parties, you should be aware of the fact that your data will be lost or third parties may potentially access this information and consequently collect and use the data without your consent. In many cases, the individual data packets are transmitted encrypted, but not the names of the sender and the recipient. Even if the sender and the recipient live in the same country, data is often transmitted via such networks without controls via third countries, i.e. also via countries that do not offer the same level of data protection as your country of domicile. We assume no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission over the Internet and disclaim all liability for direct or indirect losses. We ask you to use other means of communication if you deem it necessary or reasonable for security reasons.
Despite extensive technical and organizational security precautions, data may be lost or intercepted and/or manipulated by unauthorized persons. As far as possible, we take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent this within our system. However, your computer is outside the security area we control. It is your responsibility as a user to inform yourself about the necessary security precautions and to take appropriate measures in this regard. As a website operator, we are under no circumstances liable for damages that you may incur as a result of data loss or manipulation.
Data that you provide in online forms may be passed on to commissioned third parties for the purpose of order processing and viewed by them and, if necessary, processed.
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
