Data Protection Officer:
**General / Introduction**
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we strive to protect the databases as much as possible from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or falsification.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., communication by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing, and use of data as described below. This website can generally be visited without registration. Data such as pages visited or names of files accessed, date, and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes, without these data being directly related to your person. As far as personal data (for example, name, address, or email addresses) is collected on our pages, this is, as far as possible, always done on a voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
Processing of Personal Data
Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. An affected person is a person whose personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular storage, disclosure, procurement, deletion, storage, modification, destruction, and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Insofar and to the extent that the EU-GDPR is applicable, we process personal data on the following legal bases in connection with Art. 6 (1) GDPR:
(a) Processing of personal data with the consent of the affected person.
(b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the affected person and for carrying out corresponding pre-contractual measures.
(c) Processing of personal data for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject under the applicable law of the EU or under the applicable law of a country in which the GDPR is wholly or partially applicable.
(d) Processing of personal data to protect vital interests of the affected person or another natural person.
(f) Processing of personal data to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the affected person prevail. Legitimate interests include 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 necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict processing accordingly.
With SSL/TLS Encryption
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests 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.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Without SSL/TLS Encryption
Please note that data transmitted via an open network such as the Internet or an email service without SSL encryption can be viewed by everyone. Information transmitted over the Internet and content received online can be transmitted over third-party networks. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of communications or materials transmitted over such open networks or third-party networks. If you disclose
personal data over an open network or third-party networks, you should be aware that your data may be lost or potentially viewed by third parties, and as a result, the data can be collected and used without your consent. Although in many cases individual data packets are transmitted encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. Even if the sender and recipient are in the same country, data transfer via such networks often takes place uncontrolled via third countries, i.e., countries that do not offer the same level of data protection as your country of domicile. We accept no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission over the Internet and reject any liability for direct or indirect damages. We ask you to use other means of communication if you consider this necessary or sensible for security reasons.
Despite extensive technical and organizational security measures, it is possible for data to 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 that we control. It is your responsibility as a user to inform yourself about the necessary security precautions and to take appropriate measures. As the operator of the website, we are in no way liable for any damage you may suffer as a result of data loss or manipulation.
Data you enter in online forms can be passed on to authorized third parties for the purpose of processing the order and can be viewed and possibly processed by them.
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 browser version
Operating system used
Hostname of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific individuals. These data are not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.
Services of Third Parties
This website may use Google Maps for embedding maps, Google Invisible reCAPTCHA for protection against bots and spam, and YouTube for embedding videos.
These services of the American company Google LLC use, among other things, cookies, which means that data is transferred to Google in the USA, whereby we assume that no personal tracking takes place in this context simply through the use of our website.
Google is committed to ensuring adequate data protection in accordance with the US-European and US-Swiss Privacy Shield.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on these data without your consent.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the provided email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
After you have given your consent to the storage of data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter, you can revoke this consent at any time, for example via the „unsubscribe link“ in the newsletter.
For the comment function on this website, in addition to your comment, information on the time of the creation of the comment, your email address and, if you are not posting anonymously, the username you have chosen will be stored.
Storage of the IP Address
Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users who post comments. Since we do not check comments on our site before they are activated, we need these data in order to take action against the author in the case of legal violations such as insults or propaganda.
Subscribing to Comments
As a user of the site, you can subscribe to comments after registering. You will receive a confirmation email to verify that you are the owner of the provided email address. You can unsubscribe from this function at any time via a link in the info emails.
