Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Swiss Confederation (Data Protection Act, DSG), every person has the right to protection of their privacy and to protection against misuse of their 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 strive to protect the databases as much as possible from unauthorised access, loss, misuse or forgery.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (SSL) via HTTPS.
Collection of access data and log files
We, or our hosting provider, collect data on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO, we or our hosting provider collect data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, volume of data transmitted, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. 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.
Log file information is stored for a maximum of 7 days for security reasons (e.g. to clarify acts of abuse or fraud) and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.
Management of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or telephone number. But data on preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites have been viewed by someone also counts as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by us if this is legally permitted or the users consent to the data collection.
If corresponding data is collected, this data can be used accordingly with analysis and tracking providers.
When contacting us (e.g. by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the user's details are processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing. The user's details may be stored in a customer relationship management system («CRM system») or in a comparable enquiry organisation in order to process possible follow-up enquiries more efficiently.
We delete enquiries if they are no longer required. We review the necessity every two years. Furthermore, the legal archiving obligations apply.
