Privacy Statement

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data during collection, processing and use on the occasion of your visit to our website is an important concern to us.

 

1. Personal Data

Personal data is information that can be used to determine your identity. This includes your name, address, postal address and telephone number. Information that is not associated with your identity (such as the number of users of a website) is not included. In principle, you can use our online offer without disclosing your identity.

When you visit our website or use our services, the device with which you call up the page automatically transmits log data (connection data) to our servers. Log data includes the IP address of the device you use to access the website or service, the type of browser you use to access the site, the page you visited previously, your system configuration, and date and time information. IP addresses are stored only to the extent necessary to provide our services. Otherwise the IP addresses will be deleted or anonymized. We store your IP address when you visit our website for a maximum of 7 days to identify and prevent attacks.

If you request information or make other inquiries, we will ask you for your name and other personal information. It is up to you to decide whether you want to enter this data or not. We store your data on specially protected servers in Switzerland. Following an appropriate examination, the EU Commission has certified that Switzerland has a level of data protection comparable to EU law. Data transmission from the EU to Switzerland is permitted under data protection law. Access to this data is only possible for a few authorised persons. They are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of the contents and servers.

If the usage or traffic data is required for our services, it is stored for a maximum of six months after the data has been collected. If the data is required to comply with existing legal, statutory or contractual retention periods (e.g. invoices), this data will also be stored beyond this period. However, this data is blocked and only accessible to a few authorized persons via passwords.

 

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 DSGVO)

If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which a processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO).

If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO).

 

Right to limitation of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

The right to restriction of the processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data has taken place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  •  If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Para. 1 DSGVO, a balance must be struck between your and our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests predominate, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may only be processed – apart from their storage – with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

 

2. Disclosure of personal data to third parties

We use your personal information only for the purpose of its use by us. We do not pass the data on to third parties without your express consent. Insofar as we are obliged to do so by law or court order, we will pass on your data to bodies entitled to receive such information.
