Based on Article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution and the data protection provisions of the Swiss Confederation (Federal Act on Data Protection, FADP), every person is entitled to the protection of his or her privacy as well as protection against misuse of his or her personal data. We comply with these regulations: personal data is treated as strictly confidential and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we make every effort to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or falsification.
SERVER LOG FILES
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:
Browser type and version, Operating system used, Referrer URL (last visited website), Host name of the accessing computer, Time of the server request, and IP address. This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 13 para. 1 FADP and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.
PRIVACY STATEMENT REGARDING THE USE OF SITE KIT (GOOGLE ANALYTICS)
This website uses the WordPress analytics plugin Site Kit. The provider of this plugin is Google.com. Simple statistics are generated from the data in an anonymized form. For this purpose, no usage profiles are created and no cookies are set. All data collected by Site Kit is stored completely anonymously on the web server. Personal identification of a visitor is therefore not possible, even retrospectively.
SSL OR TLS ENCRYPTION
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this website uses an SSL or SSL protocol. TLS encryption. You can typically recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. Under no circumstances do we pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent to data processing (Art. 13 para. 1 FADP; Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, a message to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
For the comment function on this website, in addition to your comment, details of when the comment was created, your email address and, if you do not post anonymously, the username you have chosen will be stored.
The comments and the associated data (e.g. e-mail address) are stored and remain on this website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. offensive comments).
The storage of comments is based on your consent (Art. 13 para. 1 FADP; Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke any consent you have given at any time. For this purpose, a message to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on this website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and we do not pass this data on to third parties under any circumstances.
The processing of your data in connection with the newsletter is carried out exclusively for the purpose of informing you about the activities of the Company (e.g. sending semi-annual reports, reporting on the Company in the media).
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 13 para. 1 FADP; Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address, and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter or by sending a message to us. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remain unaffected by this.
JURISDICTION AND APPLICABLE LAW
