2. Processing of Personal Data

2.1 Definitions

Personal data shall include any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject shall be any person whose personal data is processed. Processing shall comprise any handling of personal data, irrespective of the means and procedures applied, in particular any collection, destruction, disclosure, erasure, modification, retention, storage, and utilization of personal data.

2.2 Lawfulness of Processing

We process personal data in accordance with the Swiss data protection legislation, in particular in accordance with the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) and the Ordinance to the Federal Act on Data Protection (DPO).

2.3 Type, Scope and Purpose

We shall process any personal data that is required to enable us to provide our website in a permanent, user-friendly, safe and reliable manner. Such personal data can fall into the categories of master and contact data, content data, meta data as well as usage data, location data, contract data and payment data.

We shall process personal data for any duration that is required for the respective purpose or the respective purposes, or required by law. Personal data, the processing of which is no longer required, shall be anonymized or erased.

In principle, we shall process personal data only after the consent of the data subject has been given, unless processing is permissible for any other legal reasons, for example for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party and for corresponding measures prior to entering into a contract, to safeguard our prevailing legitimate interests, since processing is apparent from the circumstances or after prior information.

In this context, in particular, we process data which the data subject has communicated to us in making contact – for example via postal mail, email, contact forms, instant messaging, social media or telephone – voluntarily and on their own. We may store such information for example in an address book or using comparable aids. If you transmit personal data about third parties to us, you are obligated to guarantee the data protection for such third parties as well as to ensure the accuracy of such personal data.

We also process personal data which we receive from third parties, collect while providing our website or procure from publicly accessible sources, insofar and inasmuch as such processing is legally permissible.

2.4 Processing of Personal Data by Third Parties including Third Parties Abroad

We can have personal data processed by third parties such as, in particular, contract processors, or process personal data together with third parties as well as with the aid of third parties or transmit personal data to third parties. Such third parties are in particular suppliers and other service providers. We ensure adequate data protection by these third parties.

Such third parties are generally located in Switzerland or in the European Economic Area (EEA) including the European Union (EU) and the Principality of Liechtenstein. However, such third parties and companies can also be located in other countries in the world and elsewhere in the universe, provided their data protection regulations guarantee adequate data protection according to the evaluation of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) or, if for other reasons, such as through a corresponding contractual agreement, particularly based on standard contract clauses, or a corresponding certification, adequate data protection is guaranteed. For third parties in the United States of America (USA), the certification in accordance with the Privacy Shield can guarantee an adequate level of data protection. As an exception, such a third party or such a company can be located in a country without adequate data protection, provided the data protection requirements such as, for example, the express consent of the data subject, are fulfilled.

3. Rights of Data Subjects

Any data subjects whose personal data is processed by us shall have the rights according to the Swiss data protection legislation. This shall include the right to information as well as the right to block, correct or erase the personal data processed.

Any data subjects whose personal data is processed by us shall have the right to file a complaint with any supervisory authority in charge. The supervisory authority in charge of data protection in Switzerland is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).

4. Data Security

We shall take reasonable and adequate technical and organizational measures to ensure data protection and data security. In any case, the processing of personal data on the internet can always have security vulnerabilities in spite of such measures. Therefore, we cannot ensure absolute data security.

Any access to our website is secured using transport encryption (SSL / TLS with HTTPS).

5. Use of the Website

5.1 Cookies

We may use cookies for our website. Cookies – also from third parties whose services we use (third-party cookies) – are data in text form which are stored in your browser. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit malware, such as Trojans and viruses.

When you visit our website, cookies may be temporarily stored in your browser as so-called “session cookies” or for a certain period of time as so-called permanent cookies. “Session cookies” are automatically erased when you close your browser. Permanent cookies in particular enable us to recognize your browser when you visit our website again, and thus allow us to measure the reach of our website, for example. However, permanent cookies can also be used for online marketing purposes.

You may disable and delete cookies in your browser settings in whole or in part at any time. Without cookies, however, our website may no longer be available to its full extent. We ask you – if and to the extent required – to consent to the use of cookies.

5.2 Server Log Files

We may record the following details for each access to our website, provided these can be transmitted from your browser to our server infrastructure or determined by our web server: Date and time including time zone, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access status (HTTP status code), operating system including user interface and version, browser including language and version, individual sites accessed on our website including the amount of data transferred, last website accessed in the same browser window (referer / referrer).

We store such details which may also represent personal data, in log files. The data is required to provide our website permanently, safely and reliably and in a user-friendly manner as well as to ensure data security and thus, in particular, the protection of personal data – also by third parties or with the help of third parties.

6. Messages and Notifications

We may send messages and notifications including newsletters by e-mail and via other communication channels including instant messaging. If and to the extent that such dispatch is permitted for other legal reasons, you must give your express consent to the use of your e-mail or other address. To ensure that no misuse by unauthorized third parties will be possible, we use a “double opt-in” procedure. We may have messages and notifications sent by third parties or with the help of third parties. You may unsubscribe from messages and notifications including newsletters at any time.

7. Third-Party Services

We may use the services of third parties in order to provide our website permanently, safely and reliably and in a user-friendly manner. Such third-party services also allow us to embed content into our website. Such third-party services require your Internet Protocol (IP) address, as otherwise such services cannot transmit the corresponding content. Such third-party services can be located outside of Switzerland or the European Economic Area (EEA) provided an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed.

For their own safety-related, statistic and technical purposes, services from third parties can also process data in connection with our website as well as from other sources – among other things with cookies, log files and tracking pixels – in aggregated, anonymized or pseudonymized form. Such data shall not be used to reach data subjects in connection with our website.

We use in particular Google Fonts and Google Maps in order to embed selected fonts as well as maps into our website. These services are offered by the American Google LLC. For users in Europe, Google’s subsidiary Google Ireland Limited is responsible. Google Fonts does not use cookies while Google Maps uses cookies.

Google has published the following information regarding type, scope and purpose of data processings: Privacy Policy, Product Privacy Guide (including Google Maps), How Google uses Information from Sites or Apps that Use Google Services, How Google Uses Cookies and Google’s Privacy and Security Principles.

8. Final Provisions

We may adapt and add to this Privacy Policy at any time. We will inform you of such adaptations and additions in a suitable form, in particular by publishing the amended Privacy Policy on our website.
